I will miss dad so much. My favorite time was just working on something with him. We didn't always see eye to eye on how to get it done, but in the end it got done. We would figure it out together. He taught me to keep trying till I got it done and never give up. He also taught me you are only as good as your word. He taught me to put others before me and always do for others. he gave me the love for fishing and hunting. I would not be who I am today without him, and can only hope to partially fill his shoes. I love you Dad!!!!

My best memory is watching my Dad with horses, he had a magical way with them. They just new what he wanted from them. He gave me that same love and respect for horses that I will carry with me all my days. Dad thank you for being my horse whisperer. I love you.
