My Dad was my hero, my inspiration and my best friend. January 17, 2012 he went to be with Jesus, our Ultimate Hero, Inspiration and Best Friend. My Dad and I had the most incredible relationship imaginable. From the time I was just a little boy, I could hardly wait to introduce my friends to my Dad -- even when I was in High School and other kids were embarrassed by their parents, I thought that my Dad was someone they just had to meet. I would like to introduce him to you.
