I would like to thank someone that means the world to me! This man started with nothing of his own away from his family. He did have a watch and he had a will do what others could not. This man raised 5 kids and has been married to the same woman forever! This man is not perfect by any means, only Jesus was! I remember him telling me that he did things because no one else would have thought to do them. I remember walking in this man’s boot, before I was three years old at 5:00 in the morning, before he went to work. The boots were the boots of an American Service Man. I remember this man being hard on me when he had to. I remember this man telling me that I could not play football if I could not make it to church on Wednesday night after practice. I remember this man stepping in when I was “grown” making sure that I was going to be okay. I remember this man standing before the church and proclaiming the power of the LORD our God. I remember this man baptizing me in the name of Jesus Christ. I remember this man crying when his mother died. I remember this man telling me to say goodbye to Grandma. I remember this man taking me and my wife to pick up my kids before they were born. This man served his country forever, it seems! Daddy, thank you for everything that you have done for me over the years and thank you for serving a God and a country that has given me the life that I have today! I can only hope to be half the man you!
