I’d like to share one of many funny incidents that I caught my dad in a lie. One day I arrived at his house and found a little bag with a donut in it. I waited a few minutes and then I asked him if anyone had been there to visit him that day. He said that no one had been there. So I asked him if he had driven anywhere. (He was not allowed to drive at that time). He replied “You know I can’t drive so that’s a silly question.” I walked in the room with the donut and his eyes got so big he started laughing so hard! He told me that I should be a detective. I’ll miss you every single day dad! May you Rest In Peace. I love you, Beba.

My father and I had many similar interests. Martial arts and spaghetti westerns are two of them. Dad would take me to the drive in movie to see the latest Bruce Lee and Clint Eastwood films. Dad also doted over my two siblings Debbie and Rori. In return many years forward. I along with my two siblings took care of dad during his declining health years. Countless trips to doctors, hospitals, nursing facilities and so on. I wouldn’t trade even these last years for anything. Anytime spent with dad was an honor and a privilege. I love you dad.
