Things I will miss the most about my Dad…he gave the best hugs, he was always happy to see me, the wonderful stories he told in great detail of moments in his life, him laughing trying to tell a joke and Dad and Mom in duo singing me Happy Birthday over the phone. He loved us all and always wanted to know how we were doing. He was a kind and loving man. He was a good Dad.
