A Great Man

September 14 is my dad's birthday.

He's been gone nearly five years.  I think about him and miss him every single day.

A great sadness in my life is that my daughter did not know him.  She was born four months after he died.  She keeps a picture of him on her desk.  Her brother tells her Grandpa stories.

He was a wonderful man.  He made a difference in the lives of so many people, beginning and ending, always, with his family.  He encouraged me, he believed in me, he let me dream. 

Thank you, Dad.  Happy Birthday.

    That right there says volumes.
