If my Daddy ever had to work a weekend,which was quite often, I would go with him to help him fix the trains! We would eat breakfast at Nicosia's diner in downtown Newport News and Mr. Nicosia would let me wash dishes and clean the counter and give me a couple of dollars as "pay". I felt so grownup. I would go play on the coal piles, help my Daddy fix trains, then he would take me to Blue Bird Gap Farm on the way home or we would stop at 7-Eleven for a Slim Jim and a cola Slurpee! Such great memories! I will never forget these or my heart full of so many more! I love and miss you Daddy! Look down on us and guide us, we still need you!
