    Dad you taught me so much and most importantly how to be good person. Your life revolved around your deep faith in God and your love of FAMILY. I hope to embody that in myself and pass it along to my children. You had so many talents , art and music and just a great handyman around the house. You worked so hard your whole life, just so Mom could stay at home. A great provider, you were. A loving and kind Dad, the best. I will miss you and Mom every last day of my LIFE. I hope that you were proud of me. You always called me “Sweetie”. I am better for having had Parents like I did. Love Always and Forever. Lisa
