Sixteen Thousand Six Hundred Eighty-Five Sunrises: Dad Stories
Sixteen Thousand Six Hundred Eighty-five Sunrises is a collection of humorous episodes concerning the life of John Estall Berry Jr. Most of the time, I was a willing participant in these, as I like to call them “Dad Stories.” Dad only lived a short time here on earth, but each day he lived was filled with fun, as well as some not-so-fun teaching moments.
Over the years, our family has recounted our memories and smile, cry, or simply laugh ourselves silly. Minus a smidge of poetic license and perhaps just a hint of exaggeration by the author, these stories are as truthfully told as can possibly be.
