One of my fondest memories is when I was working on my house and didn't have the money to buy a window and finish the work. I remember dad pulling a 100 dollar bill out of a hidden compartment in his wallet, giving it to me and saying "Don't tell Mom! Go get your window." That was 25+ years ago.

I'll miss you Dad!
P.S. I never told Mom.

I have been so blessed to call you Dad!
I will never forget the surprise visit from you and mom (Jo Ann). I tried to hide my mess by throwing dirty dishes in the microwave. I be danged if you didn't go straight to the microwave and bust me.
You never let me live that one down and made sure you checked our microwave on every visit after that day.
I will truly miss you and all of our loving banter.
