My Dad and Me......
This is my dad. Wasn't he handsome? And look at that smile. My dad always had this big smile on his face. He made you feel like he was absolutely overjoyed to see you, every time. And he smiled like this to everybody! Friends, family, store clerks......
He was tall, at 6'4", though he was slumped down to my level for the top photo. He was strong, smart, talented. He could fix almost anything. He kept my old cars running for me.
One of the best things about him was that he believed in me. He made me feel like I could do anything. He had the utmost confidence in me, and was proud of me no matter what...... I've said that he was my biggest fan in life...... there's no doubt I was his -- I still am.
Happy Father's Day, Dad! I love you forever and miss you always.
