Dad, as I sit here reading all of the entries, I can truly you say you have touched the hearts of many people. You have no idea how much you have inspired my life and always will. You always made it a point to put your Family and your friends first. Dad you gave me enough memories to last forever, your laughter would always fill the room with joy. I am going to miss you day in and day out. the thing that made me the happiest about being your son was the fact that you and mom have stayed together through the good times and in bad. I knew I always would have you there for advice, You taght me how to make people laugh and to be there for people when they needed a friend. I feel everything I know is because you have taught it to me, even how to throw tools when a job isnt going your way( it usually helped until I have to run to lowes and spend a $100 on a new drill or saw). I love you Dad, I will miss the phone calls while I'm at work to tell me a joke or how someone made you laugh. Don't worry about us we have what you have taught us to get through these tough times. I Love you forever. P.S. I hope this wasn't your way of getting out of finishing the trim in the dinning Room, Dont worry well finish it.
