My dad was unlike no other. He was his own man with his own ways and taught me endless things. Above all, he taught me love and laughter. He also ensured that I knew how to change a tire and change my own oil. He tried to instill in me to check my tire pressure and fluid levels in my car once a week. It was so important to him that I have all of the tools I needed for car repair that instead of chocolates and a teddy bear for Valentine's Day, one year he got me a tool box filled with tools. What daughter wouldn't love that? He was fun to watch football with and challenge each other. He was always a great sport when I rubbed his face in his team losing. And he gave just As much when my team lost too. For many years we would wake up at 3 am and go to Rosie McCaffrey's Irish pub on St Patrick's day to watch Beth and Bill do their live show. Nothing like a little irish whiskey in your morning coffee. My dad taught me to balance a checkbook and keep and bill worksheet and until this day I use the exact methods he taught me. Dad became pretty proficient at using the computer. He better have for all of the long, late night how I do.. calls I talked him through. He even taught me a thing or two. There are endless memories and countless things I could say about my dad. I will miss him with all of my heart. I lost not only my dad but one of my best friends. I am forever changed because of him. I love you daddy!! I know you'll be looking over me and my family until we met again.

I can't say when I first met Ron; I don't remember not knowing him. To say that we knew each other forever would be very accurate. We practically grew up together; we were neighbors separated by a few houses on opposite sides of the street. We went to South High School together, but we did not share any classes. I'm very confident in saying that Ron was one of the two closest of my childhood friends. He was always on the lookout for fun, and we had a lot of laughs together. I made the mistake of going to a drive-in movie with Ron one time (there were others), when, thanks to Ron, I found popcorn in my car for a week. I'm happy that I was close to his family; I've shared meals with them, and one Christmas they found a beautiful tie for me under their tree (a teenager with a tie?). I remember helping a little bit when Ron installed the floor shift kit in his car, and that helped me develop a beginning interest in mechanics. After high school -- I'm sure some would say I took the easy way out--I enlisted. I wouldn't be surprised if it were Ron who organized the gang into giving me that electric razor the day I left for basic training. The AirForce told me I was a mechanic, and I've been spinning wrenches on cars and other specialized equipment both full- and part-time since then. Ron went on to start working, and I believe he later started his own business. After that, although we were marginally in touch, I remember him as a serious, dedicated worker. Ron kept in touch with me throughout my four AirForce years, and he said he was out of shape for writing letters. Ron and the gang included me in many of their street football and basketball games, but I was never the athletic type, and we all had a camaraderie which I fondly remember. I was out of shape for athletics. I think I was the oldest, but that never stopped the fun. Ron and I were in the Boy Scouts together for a time, and a lot of my fondest memories are of some winter camping trips: the time a snowfall collapsed a tent, the time we went nighttime snowshoeing, and the campout trip where we started learning to shoot. I'll never forget him, and I don't want to. I am fondly reminded of Ron and so many simpler, fun times each time I pass his house.

Fondly, and with a sense of loss,

Sonny Risley
