Dad was a loving father. I'm sure many people can say the same thing about their father. That is wonderful, but he was more than just that to me. He spent time with me. We hunted together, we bowled together, we shot pool together. He taught me how to ride a bike and drive a car, to use tools and fix things. I could always count on him. He was a wonderful example of what it is to be a father and a man. To take responsibility for yourself, to work hard, to be good provider, to take care and protect the ones you love. I loved him and will miss him everyday.

Dad was my hero. He was the strongest man I knew....never wanting his kids to see his pain through many, many years. I will miss his smile and his laugh and the way he celebrated when he got a ringer or a strike or made a great bank shot :). Love you Dad...Rest in peace. Your favorite daughter.
