Day 37: Happy Birthday Dad!


My Dad would be 103 today!  So, a little bit about his family.




This is my Dad's Grandpa, his Mother's Dad,  John Mills.
I think Grandma said he trained and drove "silkies"? 
But I am not sure.



This is from 1884! Can you imagine? 
It was to honor Great Grandpa John Mills in his passing.
I just thought it was so cool, so here it is.



Meet Leila Mills, John's daughter and Dad's Mother.
4'9" tall, size 4 shoe and a heart as big as the sky.



Leila Mills was 16 when she married William Turner,
my Dad's Dad. They had four children, two lived.




Dad was older brother to Max.




They served in the Navy and Army.





Happy Birthday Dad!  He liked cake.
