So many times I have watched this man endure emotional pain beyond belief. And yet he continues every day to persevere and find focus to aid others in dealing with their own pain of many different situations. In May of 2004, I lost my 21-year-old daughter to a tragic car accident and this man inspired me to go on, to be strong and find acceptance of her passing. This man is my Daddy, my mentor, and my best friend. His compassion and love for his family, and friends as well, extends far beyond their expectations of him. He is selfless, understanding, committed and loyal to any person within his path. And his only hope is to be loved and respected and remembered by his children when he leaves this world. This man is not only my hero, he is and has been a hero to so many others. He never ceases to amaze me in his tolerance of being hurt by others, he always "turns the other cheek" and moves on continuing to give blessings to others. He is my guiding angel here on earth.
