Stories From My Dad for Father’s Day 2015
This week, I was able to sit down with the best Dad, in my opinion, Bill Wissore. I was able to ask him to share some of the stories about his past, about my grandfather, and hear some stories about my great grandfather as well. It’s amazing to hear them and realize just how different the country and culture was not so long ago. From my great grandfather’s expeditions with a career in the train yard, to my grandfather’s journey as a “gentleman farmer” trying to make a difference in the lives of those around him, up to some of the challenges my dad sees as he runs a homeless shelter in rural Texas.
My folks have been married for nearly 50 years, mygrandparents were married for over 50 years, and my great grandparents were as well. Between them all, they had 8 children and a lot of experience as fathers. Dad talks about how things were when he grew up and pulls back the curtains a bit on how each of us have tried to have a positive impact on each generation and those around them. Dad was even the “Man of the Year” in Cleburne, TX for 2014, but he doesn’t like to brag – so I will. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this different episode as much as I did recording it and I’d encourage you to sit down and learn a little bit about your family’s history at the same time.
