“My dad is the greatest.
He was a single father of four after my mom died in 1995 due to complications with MS. We were all between the ages of 6-16 and he vowed to my mom he would be the best dad he could be.
Boy did he succeed.
He was there for every sporting event, play, and parent/teacher conference. He came home every day after a 10-hour shift and made sure dinner was on the table and help was available for school work. He put all four of us through college on that blue collar salary, never missing a graduation ceremony, no matter where it was across the country.
He was and continues to be the rock of our family. He’s been there for us through heartache and happy times. The loss of friends and family and also for weddings and the birth of his three (soon to be four) grandchildren.
If you know him, you love him. I am so lucky to have him as my dad.
(This is a photo of our first hug in over a year after we were both fully vaccinated. It was a pretty emotional scene.)”
