No words could ever describe what you mean to me, as a father, as a role model and my best friend.; you were my personal Super Hero pop! The man you were and the life you lived will always be to me what shaped my life, my world and the man that I have become. You, mom and Maureen all believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself and for that I will be forever grateful to call you my parents. Being your son was the honor of a lifetime, a privilege so few I know in this life will ever have and that’s to be unconditionally loved, supported and be told they’re proud of who you are by the man that made you despite your faults and shortcomings! I miss you dad and I love you more then I could ever express in any form or medium... You have and will always be my best friend, my father, my hero and my inspiration for life and all it’s wonders! I will always strive to be as special of a human being as you were and continue to make you proud until we meet again...

Love Now and Until The End of Time,
Your Son,
Kris
