I didn't always think that of him, but as an adult you certainly see your parents in a different light. He is strong in his faith, and strong in the love for his wife of 50 years come July, and his love for his family is one of the strongest. From as far back as I remember we never part company or went to bed as a kid without hearing him say..."Love you!"
He continues to be strong and healthy, bowling up to four or five times a week, and even got up on his roof recently to put on some new roofing after a wind storm. yeah there is no stopping him, and that is a good thing! One he continues to love strong more every day.
Happy Birthday Dad, Love Ya!
