Who?

He's an alcoholic who apparently had better things to do than worry with me.

Seems hyperbolic but the best person I know.



Honest, trustworthy, loyal, dependable, still sweet to my mother after like 50 something years of marriage.

 


 

 

 


An example I like is that when my grandfather died on my moms side of the family, he left behind six children (including my mother) and 10 grandchildren. Now we all hear horror storylines of people fighting over their parents estate etc.  in this case they  all chose my father to handle the estate because everyone knew without question  that he would be fair and evenhanded.


I think that kind of thing speaks volumes.

A man that would do anything and everything for his family. If I become half the man he is, I will be satisfied.
