    My dad was where I got my kindness from, he was the “helper”, he was where I got any form of people skills from. My dad encouraged love above all else and family, him and my mother chose to uproot their life to save mine when I was in my darkest hour, and like my dad said ” There was never a hesitation, its what family does”. His smile and laugh was infectious and the world is a lesser place without him in it. His faith was strong and I’m sure he is free and happy now. It was like one of his favorite shows…I could almost hear him say jokingly “I’m going to boldly go where no man has gone before” as he walks into the beautiful light of eternity with his mother , father and family that has passed waiting. I know he is watching over us… and always will until we can take the adventure to join him. Love you forever dad.
