To My Father:

Dad, throughout all my life, I have always been very proud of you and looked up to you. I don't know how to sum up all my thoughts into a few words. Several years ago, shortly before Mom died, there was one day that she thought she was going to pass away and she pulled the two of us aside. She had one thing to say to us -- "take care of each other". Up to that point, Mom had always been the one that looked after you each day to make sure
that you were on your diet and things like that. Now it was my job. Mom was always better at it than I, but I tried.

These last several years have been very special to me. It has brought us together even closer. I cherish all the times. Even some of the bad -- the times you were in the hospital and I stayed overnight holding your hand, just so you would not wake up and get scared. But mostly all of the good times. The times we went to baseball games. We got to see a Cubs game together (they won). The time that I took you out to the ocean shortly before a hurricane, just so we could see the waves. The time we went to New York together or
would just take a drive. We took many, many trips together. Every weekend we would try to go somewhere different.
Even after you had to use a wheelchair and oxygen, it didn't stop us. We hauled your oxygen equipment in my car as we took a trip to Niagara Falls.

In addition to the trips, the times that we would sit together and watch the "Big Bang" on TV at night or just watch a good baseball game. We watched so many baseball games together. We watched the cubs win the world series together.

All of these things I am going to miss very much. Whenever I watch a baseball game, I'll save a seat next to me for you. I'll always have you in my heart.

Thank you for being my father. I love you and am so proud to be your son.
