Dad, thanks for a great childhood and making me into the man I am today. You loved us so much and we could see that in how hard you worked and how much you sacrificed. Your love for Mom showed us how a marriage is supposed to be. Your sense of humor gave me tools to deal with the worst life had to offer. I will miss you greatly and I will remember something about you every day for the rest of my life. Your son, David
