I thought we had more time, time for us to argue more about cars. Time to talk about the good days when you showed up to my sporting events, time to talk about politics, crazy liberals, and your days in the Fire and Police department. I will miss our talks, that we had. You taught me right from wrong, and when I did wrong you put me back on path. At times you where tough but that made me who I am today , tough enough that parents today are too scared to be. I am glad for everything you did for us , you did the best you could and that that was pretty good, for that I am thankful. Thanks for not yelling at me too much when I got my 1st ticket on my 350 Chevy my 1st month of driving, thanks for laughing about it later with me. Thanks for rebuilding my transmission 3 times in the SS Camaro even though you knew I blew it up from burning rubber. Thanks for teaching me about camping, shooting guns , playing ball, swimming and all that other Dad stuff other kids today don't appreciate. Thanks for saving me from all the dumb stuff I did as a kid. I appreciated everything. Until I see you and everyone else in heaven, I miss you already.

Your loving son Joe.
