That's so beautiful and true Kevin. Though it's been over 5 years now i sit here and think hmmm whens Dad coming for coffee? I wonder if he ate more than peanut butter n bread today ;-) Oh this happened I gotta call Dad he'd love to hear about that. It seems like I last saw him yesterday in my mind but then I stop n realize it's been so long in reality. He instilled many great traits in us through his "tough" love.

Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.memories..  He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it....... 9-7-12
