    Thanks to everyone for their kind words and prayers. My dad was a very dedicated person, if he started something then he wasn't going to stop whatever it was until it was complete and perfect and just to keep me out of the way sometimes he would tell me to go outside and pick up the trash and everything else " god" didn't put there.He has blessed us with so many great memories and I can't wait to share them with my son. He loved my mom more than words could ever say they were truly best friends. Everyday she would walk in the door from work and he would have dinner sitting on the table for her, which would usually lead to a family meeting trying to figure out the "agenda" for the next day. Dad thanks for showing me how to be a great father and best friend! I know now we have one more guardian angel watching over us. Mom is in good hands!
