Family, my heart breaks for all of those that lost the opportunity to meet such a wonderful genuine man. He loved all of us without judgement, without critism and always with an open mind and heart. I will miss you Dad, you never got me to take a fish off the hook, but you sure did get me to toast life. Heaven gained an angel and we know you are watching over us.
