To think of who has inspired me the most in life one name comes to mind, Yogi. The man who created me, gave me my name, my best and truest friend in life, my father. As a kid I earned the nickname "Shadow" from family friends because we were always together, stuck like glue. From childhood, all of my greatest achievements I credit to the values and desire that my dad instilled in me. From shingling a roof, to bating a hook for fishing, to simply cooking a wonderful hot dog, every moment spent with him is memorable. He unknowingly instilled the importance of family to me at an early age by choosing great family vacations over name brand clothes and nice cars. To this day, 20 years down the road, we remain inseparable and best friends. He's more than any father, more than any human to me and more than any hero, he is simply YOGI.
