In spite of all of the ups and downs that we had over the past 45 years, we remained close. I appreciate the fact that we could accomplish that. You will be missed. I will remember all of the fun and funny times we had.

Dad, wish I could have one more funny story, one more time to hear a joke, one more time for you to make me more meeting for us to participate in together while I sit and admire how you conduct yourself, while I look around the room and see how you are more time to feel proud of you. These are the things that I will pass on to a boy that loves and admires you just as I have. Sweet dreams.
