Vern Muncy, a new resident at Presbyterian Village North, feels lucky to get to see his son, Paul, on Father’s Day. After all, they have a lifetime of memories together.
“I had Paul when I was 25 years old, and one of the first things I taught Paul was how to throw a baseball. When I was 45 and he was 20, we played on the same church league fast-pitch softball team,” he said. “I find it important to spend as much time as I can with my family and tell them why they make me proud. Having my children around me is the best Father’s Day I could ask for, and knowing my children are not only my children but close friends as well is the best feeling.”
Paul, a Lake Highlands resident, feels the same.
“It is wonderful having my dad close to me again. We have the ability to be together whenever we want, whether we are reminiscing through old photographs, taking trips to the lake or simply checking on each other in person or over the phone,” Paul said. “Since he made the move to PVN almost a year ago, we have developed new traditions, like having a family dinner on Sundays … now I can see him a few times every week. Our relationship has really grown over the past year, and I really enjoy having him be a part of not only my life but the lives of my two daughters as well.”
PVN is hosting a Father’s Day brunch at their campus this weekend.
