My Father in love was a man that loved hard and worked hard. He didn't say I love you easily except to the love of his life,Emily. He demonstrated his love. He would call each night and ask how we were and how our day had been. He was a big man with a big heart. I am blessed to have been in his life for 41 years. I love you Pop and I will talk to you later. Love. Cindy
