The one thing that really sticks in my mind about my Dad, is his unselfishness ever when in extreme pain. We went on a Father/son fishing trip with the church on a weekend and we had set up the tent and at the I was about 8 or 9 years old at the time but at sometime that day he had hurt his back really bad and could not even stand up straight from the pain in his back. I remember him saying that we needed to go back to town to the ER and I cried because all my friends where here and I wanted to camp out and fish not really understanding how bad it was for him but he stood it out just for me and the more I think about it, the more I wish to be like my Dad in away that I can do what I need to do to make my kids happy just like my dad did for me.

I read your memories about your Moms and it brings tears to my eyes. My Mom died in a car accident when I was 18 months old. I was a daughter without a Mother. But my Dad loved me unconditionally and he was a sweet gentle person. He and I lived with my Grandma and Grandpa for 3 years.
Every night when he came home from work he brought me a treat, an apple, or a banana. He made a swing for me in the big tree in the front yard and on the weekend he would always take me for an ice cream.......he was a king among men, a poor king but rich in love.
He was My Dad.
