1979 TCMA Baseball History Series #18 Del Ennis
I was talking to my six-year-old son Doug recently about how his Pop-Pop's (my Dad's) birthday was coming up. Dad would have been 69 today.
Doug asked if we'd still celebrate his birthday even though he wouldn't be here. And I told him that we'd get together with his Mimi (my Mom) and his Aunt Caca (my sister) and her family to celebrate. He thought about it for a few minutes and then he said, "I wish the Spirit of Pop-Pop could be there to blow out his candles kind of like how the Spirit of Obi-Wan visited Luke on Dagobah."
I smiled and I agreed with Doug that would definitely be awesome. Then I heard my Dad's voice remind me, "You're a lucky man, Jimmy."
We miss you Sir.
