Say the word "father," and you might think of a man with a pipe in an armchair reading the paper. But say the words "my father," and out comes a mental photo album's worth of pictures where Dad was the center of the experience. This is the premise and perception of author Louise Betts Egan's tribute to dads everywhere, I Remember When Dad . . . Memories and Stories About Fathers.To compile this heartfelt homage, Egan asked people of all ages, from all walks of life, to reminisce about their dads. The results are reflective and poignant.o "I will never forget Dad reading the last line of the first night's tale-"The Tell-Tale Heart"-and to this day, the story and my father are linked in one of my favorite childhood adventures." -Helen, 46, Enid, Oklahomao "Dad died 15 years ago, but when I close my eyes and listen, I can still hear him playing. His music is the sound track to my childhood and memories of home." -Joanna, 47, Raleigh, North Carolinao "I don't know if I could be as positive and selfless about giving up some dream at my age. It would be tough-but Dad never let on if it was." -Gaetano, 26, Washington, D.C.Throughout the pages of I Remember When Dad . . . , fond memories willingly shared reach out to all of us, reminding us just how special our own fathers have been. It's a loving honor to that first most-important man in our lives. Say the word "father," and you might think of a man with a pipe in an armchair reading the paper.
