Dad was my rock, my anchor, my mentor and a very special friend. He always made time to listen, teach, and share treasured moments with all his children. As the only daughter, he made sure that I was included; even in sports with my brothers if only to "tag" along. He embraced my independent, adventurous spirit and encouraged me to work hard, love your family, respect others, and when the going gets tough...get tougher. I loved spending time with him, he was fun, smart and I must say...very good looking. But most of all he LOVED my mom, his children and his extended family and friends. To all who attended visitation and the memorial service...thank you! I know you were there because he touched your life in a special way.God bless!
