Something from his Children
We all lost someone the other day, someone who was much more than just a relative, a teacher, or a friend. Someone who was always "THERE" for all of us, through thick or thin. Someone we all respected and who also respected all of us, regardless of where we lived, how we lived or what we did. He taught us values that money cannot buy: Loyalty, Love, and Family. He worked 18 to 20 hours a day on two jobs and never complained, all the while teaching us the value of hard work. He taught us all many other things over the years, hunting, fishing, and gardening to name a few. We all had our moments at times, but hours or days later we were old friends and family again and he was and will always be OUR DAD. We'll all miss you Dad.
