My dad was the greatest man I ever knew.  I remember camping with him as a child, skating with him when I was a teenager and starting the dinners that became the big family dinners with our family.  He was a hard working man that always took care of his family.  He took us to church and taught me to love Jesus.  He was always there when I needed him.  I think I inherited his ability to fix things and also not to throw things away you might be able to use someday.  Just like dad I never met a stranger and we are both very social.  I love him very much and will miss him greatly.  I want to thank everyone for all the kind thoughts and words.
