My Daddy's Letters - by Paul Douglas Sanner
One of my most cherished songs on my soon to be released album is dedicated to my Dad and Mom, William O. and Minnie Belle Sanner. My parents just recently celebrated 60 years of marriage ~ they have four children and numerous grand and great grand children. My Daddy's Letters shares the unique story of how they met and how our family came to be.
My dad is a Marine (Semper Fi) and he has a Japanese rifle last fired at him off of Okinawa during WWII. He met my mom when he returned home from the war. As it turns out they dated for just 3 months and were married when only 3 weeks later he was shipped back off to war (to Korea) for a whole year. An important way that my parents got to know each other was through their letters back and forth for that year.
God has blessed me with WONDERFUL parents and this song is a tribute to them. But this song is also a tribute to EVERY one of the heros who have volunteered to serve and protect our freedom! So many individuals and families make these kinds of sacrifices every day. God bless them and our amazing country!
