Pictures of Dad

I just had a nice idea while watching a movie on television.

A character in the movie showed her boyfriend a picture of her Mom and said, "She lived a couple of years after that but we didn't take any pictures because she didn't want us to remember her like that."

I've wondered about that with Dad. I don't want to only remember him with pictures that show him frail and sickly.

But here's the nice idea:

I don't want pictures of him from when he was younger. He was just Dad then. Now, is when we're friends. I want to remember him as he now, my Dad who's my friend.
