Happy Father’s Day to your Awe-inspiring Dad!
I’ve often told my mom she married the urban myth. A man with ambition and education, devoted to her and their children, willing to share his life with not only our family but to also give to others.
My mom and dad met on a blind date. My dad always maintained that when he saw my mother’s eyes he knew that was the woman he would marry. My mom thought,
“At least he’s not a dog.”
Countless letters and presents to follow, my dad was in the military, when he was finally released they were official. Dated for a minute and then, yes, a ring and a date.
43 years together, 45 if you go back to the time they met, my dad past August 7, 2000.
We miss him daily!
All the drive, inspiration and knowledge that I have, comes from my dad. He always told me,
“Whatever you do Ellie, be the best! “
He was the most awe-inspiring person I’ve ever had the privilege to know.
