It’s not just one memory that I have it’s a combination, its the way he made me feel like part of the family when I was there, and I was there a lot! It’s how he made Wendy laugh at the dinner table, I can still hear her laugh. It’s how Wendy would get so embarrassed when her mom and dad would show PDA in front of her friends! It was his typical “dad” jokes and his cute squinty eyes! It was all these things that I remember about Wendy’s dad. I’m so sorry for your loss Wendy, I know he will be missed!
