Man of character, humor, steadfastness, honor and faith, somehow you fell into my lap and I cannot believe how lucky I am. Thank you for your unwavering support, your flexibility and patience with this cancer craziness and all the fussing and changing of routine that it has brought. As difficult as this has been for all of us, it must burden you the most, but you rarely give a hint of this.
You have made me a far better person over the years. You brought me to my faith and for this I am most grateful. But most of all, thank you for being the best dad I could ever have hoped to have for my children. They are the most blessed of all.
