My Dad was and will always be my hero. If I become half the man he was, I will consider my life a success. Hands down my Dad is the smartest man I've ever known (and I have known some very smart men), the best Dad, and one amazing Christian father! He gave me my passion for The Word. Heaven is already loving your sense of humor, booming laugh, and that $1 million dollar smile. Love you, miss you!
