So many memories, so many good times and lessons learned. But my favorites are of him always being there for me when I was a kid and an adult, him asking me what the ( h e double hockey sticks) I needed to go to Europe for, how happy he looked when I got married, him shaking his head and saying “wait, you’re going back to school again”, him telling me how proud he was when we bought our first home, and the glimmer in his eye every time he was with his granddaughters. I love you Dad. Thanks for being “you”!
