The day I graduated college he was proud of his boy

My father was my biggest cheerleader. His support always pushed me to be the best me I can. Our long conversations about my future, my sports or my life are my most cherished memories. Playing basketball I remember hearing his voice above the crowd every time the referee blew his whistle. He loved sports and showed his support in everyone I chose to play. The lessons he taught me. The words he spoke to me. His absolute honesty about everything. The man he was and the person he encouraged me to be will always be with me. His love for his grandchildren is a testament to what was most important to him. His family was always first. He shown with pride with every accomplishment that I achieved. His absence is felt by all. His love and support will remain forever. Love you daddy.
