ADD A MEMORY

I have too many memories to even share them all, but some of the best memories I have of him, are from when it was just us two together. He drove me to a lot of cheer practices on week nights and we would laugh together and joke around while in the car (his red Camaro that he loved so much) and just listen to the radio. He would let me listen to the hip hop station, even though he absolutely hated it. He loved his country & rock and roll music. And I couldn't even tell you how many times it was just us two in the afternoon watching TV together while my mom was still at work. And because of my dad I knew every single NASCAR drivers names & was so proud of it. There wasn't a single race that he missed. He planned his entire day around it. And he loved Monday night football too. His favorite team was the Miami dolphins. And, most nights, me & my dad would watch TV while my mom was cooking and then we would all eat together.. while still watching TV. I remember one night I asked them if we could all eat dinner together at the table as a family, and my mom cooked steak & baked potatoes, so us and my brother PJ all ate together at the table a big dinner, all because I asked them to. Another memory that my dad actually brought up this last Christmas, and over the years, is whenever we were all watching the movie click and he paused it, and all of us girls were crying our eyes out. He thought it was so funny. But, some of the best memories of all, are him being a papa for the first time to my daughter. She was his very first grandchild and he loved her with all his heart and soul and she loves him just as much! Being a grampa was just natural to him. He played with her and hung out with her and her didn't get to, but they were supposed to go on a fishing trip this summer together. My dad was an excellent loving grandfather and dad, a great husband to my mom for 20 years, just an all around awesome person, and the world lost an amazing person. I miss him every single day.
