Daddy


William Daniel Nolan
February 19, 1928 - December 12, 1986


The Middle

When I remember bygone days

I think how evening follows morn;

So many I loved were not yet dead,

So many I love were not yet born.


- Ogden Nash

  2. Nolan, Billy-Left us 14 years ago.
    Dad told tall tales. Dad let us stay up late. Dad shared books and music. Dad loved his golf and his girls. Dad is remembered.

    My dear Caftan Woman, it's been a few years since you wrote those words. Your words always comfort me. The good old, bad old days are never far away. Would I trade them? Never.
