Today is a GREAT DAY. Happy Birthday Daddy

On March 15th 1926 born @ home to Frank and Leona Jones was a sweet little boy. His name was Preston Allen
He worked in his daddy's cotton fields and helped out in every way on their farm.
He served our country in the Navy . He married my mama in 1948 and they had a little girl in 1954, another little girl in 1956 and then They created a MASTERPIECE in 1959... (that would be ME)
Then in 1961 they finally got JR.
Our Daddy always worked so hard to support our family and taught us morals & values. He always took us to church and was a great example to us.

I think if I could describe daddy in one word it would be STEADFAST. He was always there.
Rudy and I, and Mary Ellen and John took him to lunch today at Loggins. What a pleasure, celebrating 83 years. I am so thankful to the Lord for my Daddy. He's still as healthy as can be.

Happy Birthday Daddy, I love you I hope you enjoy looking at this walk down memory lane

somebody get that man some tea, its his birthday for heavens sake!

Boy, that's amazing...My daddy had a birthday today too. What's really amazing is that they look enough alike to be twins. Oh, that is our daddy. Thanks for sharing all the great pictures.
