My father was a kind and friendly man wgo was always there when I needed him even when he was thousands of miles away. You see I left home December 27, 1988 I joined the US Navy. That cold December morning my dad driven me to recuters office to drop me off. He gave me a big hug told me he loved me and off I went. It was not until many years later that he told me how sad he was after he dropped me off and that he had tears running down hi sis face the whole way home.

I loved my dad very much and I'll miss him every day.
