Our sweet dad was kind and compassionate. He was also stern, when he needed to teach us a lesson. Dad was such a hero, as he helped so many people. In my most difficult moments, his smile and laugh always cheered me up!
The Lord could have taken him so many times, in so many ways. He will always be missed so much, by all of us.
