Still missing you, Dad and Mom!
Pictured above are my mom, Joyce Orshoski, family friend Bette, my dad, Paul Orshoski, Sr., and family friend Bill, at a school fund raising event in the 1970's. On Father's Day, I am reminded of how kind and compassionate and funny my dad was. He taught us how to live the Golden Rule, but always with a generous sense of humor! From 10 a.m. June 17 to 10 a.m. June 18, several family and friends of Paul and Joyce Orshoski participated in the local Relay for Life, sponsored by the American Cancer Society. (Several cancer survivors were on our team, and we walked in memory of several other cancer victims and survivors as well.) We won best campsite for our "Mash" theme site. Cancer claimed both of my parents, and it was heart-breaking to see them go downhill, because they both had lived life to the fullest. Missing you both, Mom and Dad!
