So one week ago, my father turned … 95.

Harold Hulon Saye Sr. was born November 26, 1923, delivered in the tiny town of Ball Ground, GA by his grandfather, Ball Ground’s first doctor.

He lived a simple life, built his house by hand and raised five sons with the love of his life Geneva.

He’s slowing down now, recovering from a broken hip and experiencing some cognitive challenges. But on his 95th birthday, he ate his big slice of bday cake and laughed that 95 was a whole lot of years.

95 years of living life.
