National Hug a Plumber Day



Bob & Glenna Burnham at their wedding reception, June 24, 1950



My Dad is the plumber I celebrate today. Though he is no longer with us on this planet, I send Bob Burnham my hug in heaven.

He and Mom got married in Goffstown, NH on June 24, 1950. In all, they enjoyed 70 years together, and everyone who knew him benefited. All my friends were taught to call him Uncle Bob, whether or not they were my cousins. Dad was also a great gardener, clever cook, and fabulous father.


At our wedding, September 8, 2001



I was blessed with this gentle man in my life. He taught me so very much about hard work, caring for others, and loving life. Thank you, Dad, forever and ever!
