Strong with a soft heart. Solid, faith based values by which he lived ad died. Teaching/sharing came easy. Guiding sometimes difficult. Would help and take care of others and stood by for support even at the expense of his own safety. Could make and fix just about anything, very often from just about nothing. He said he would always be there for me and I believe it to be true. God gave me the most perfect earthly father possible. Every girl should be so blessed. Although he passed 9 yrs ago at the sweet age of 94, I can still fall into uncontrollable sobs. A very wise man once told me when you love deep you hurt deep.
Through the tears however comes the knowledge I WAS TRULY LOVED, UNDERSTOOD AND ACCEPTED......This love has kept me humble and I will always grateful with thanks in my heart. My regrets, being the baby I was a little slow. Two difficult relationships dissolved before I fully learned my lessons, which came as no surprise but a little disappointment to my dad (that would be a whole book in itself).
