NitFlix wishes dads a Happy Father’s Day. With this date right around the corner, it is important we give a shout-out to all dads who remain calm, cool and collected under pressure. Indeed, most kids and women panic. Certainly, men can also lose their cool; but more often than not; they tend to deal with most crises calmly.
George Ratto – Father & Daughter Memories
Since I was the last of 3 girls born, I was definitely Daddy’s little girl right up to the time of his passing in 2012 at the age of 89.
My dad, George Ratto was a World War 2 Veteran and a New York City police officer. Moreover, he was a creative, extremely humble, and intelligent man. Meanwhile, it wasn’t until I was an adult that my Aunt (his sister), shared an article with me about him getting a score of 100 on the police physical test – almost unheard of.
When I was little girl, I would exclaim, “Daddy’s home” and would run outside to meet him.
Moreover, my dad was always working inside the house as well as out in the garden. Of course, I was his little helper. In addition, my dad taught me to ride a bike, ice skate, play chess, swim, and of course, how to drive.
Due to the time, I spent with my Dad; I was good at figuring out how things worked as well as mechanically inclined. I guess that explains my fascination with my career as a Nurse and a perfusionist. Be sure to visit my National Nurses Week post to read about my career as a medical professional.
Luckily, my daughter, Jenne was fortunate enough to spend a great deal of time with my dad and referred to him as her Papa’.
Thanks to my Dad for forever being in my heart!
