Oh, Papa Bear. I couldn't ever even dream to begin to put into words how much you mean to me. There are so many important lessons that you taught us kids; Family first. Love unconditionally. Don't judge. Help those less fortunate then you. Stand up for those that are weaker. Put yourself in another's shoes. Laugh often and with your whole body. Never fight over money. Sleep on it. Family does not come from blood, but love. Think about others first. Make jokes - life is too short to take it so seriously. Don't ever go to bed angry. Imagine the last time you see someone is the last time you will see them. Support the military; respect the flag that people have died to protect. Listen. Be prepared. Try anything at least once. And the most recent being: stop saving the good china for some distant special occasion. Everyday we are blessed to be with the people we love is a special occasion.
All my love. Literally all of it,
