For My Father
William Morrell French
as we headed out to find our favorite "green spot."
He gave to those in need,
and even when you weren't in need, but he seemed to sense you needed a little gift,
or some gas money,
he opened up his wallet and he gave.
He was so giving.
That was one of his best traits.
He wrote family histories and collected family genealogies.
He carried on a correspondence with his parents,
his relatives that were connected generations back.
I even found letters he wrote to his grandparents, signed,
in his papers.
I have a large file of the letters he wrote to me.
He was a great writer, communicator, and keeper of the family histories.
