Dad, you will always be my hero. I was blessed to be able to take care of you these past few years. We had fun, we had frustrations too BUT I would do it all over again without hesitation. You taught me a lot about life and work ethic. Everyone you met loved you instantly including me as a teenager. I miss you terribly and expect that I always will until we meet again. I love you Dad!!
