My hero is my dad! He has provided me with shelter, food, education, and outstanding guidance throughout my entire life. There has never been a time when I couldn't count on him! As a young girl, very involved in basketball, he always found the time after a long, hard days work to play a game of Horse when he came home. I always had it timed just right to be outside playing when dad arrived home then all I'd have to do was throw the challenge out there about playing a game of Horse and he was on. Not sure how many games we played over the years, but he never let me quit and always provided a challenge. He made me always want more by never letting me win, but playing fair. It didn't matter how tired he was, he always found time for me! This is still the way it is today, always has time for me, always plays fair, and always is up for a great challenge. Thanks Dad for giving me the roots to be the person I am today! I love you!!
