    You were a good father to all of us. More importantly, you were a great husband to mom. I loved to watch you stand at the front door like a puppy waiting for mom to return home from work. I learned a lot from you and hope to follow in your footsteps. Until we meet again, I promise to take care of mom. I love you Dad!
