Dad and I had fun no matter where we were. One memory I have is when he took me to get my eyes done at Loden Vision Center. We were joking and laughing; we noticed an older gentleman glaring at us. I guess he thought we were too loud. I told Dad we were going to get into trouble which only made him chuckle more and then he said, "these old people in here don't know how to have fun like us".

Dad was more than a father-in-law to me. He was like a dad to me. We could talk about anything and shared so many thoughts and dreams. I will miss him more than I can ever express.
