He also taught me good values and a no-nonsense attitude toward life and people. He taught me how special family is and how important it is to treat them well.
Most importanly....he loves my Mom so much. They've known each other since they were both 14. They've been married for 51 years. And he still looks at her like she's the most special person on earth.
His love for her and for me and my brothers and sister is our stability. I know for a fact I wouldn't be the person I am today without my Dad's guidance and love.
I love you Dad. Forever and always. Happy Father's Day.
