By example he taught me to do whatever I need to do to live the life I want to live. No self pity, just unemotional, practical, hard work. And then joyful, (often times gin and champagne infused) family party time! More than anything, my father is a family man. He also loves to have fun! In his 45 years with my mother he showed me that marriage is the highest blessing. Everything he does is to see his wife and children happy. He is the epitome of work hard, play hard. He is loyal, loving, and incredibly accommodating! Thanks Dad- you are the best!
