My father was a great man, I wish that I would have been able to be there more for him in his life. He and I had a falling out and did not speak for many years, however over the past ten years or so we became best of friends and I got back the father that I always wanted. So sad that I lost him so soon though, he was too young to leave us. I love you dad, I know that I am always your number 1!
