I am thankful for my dad who taught me by example to have a strong conscience, a good work ethic, and to give 100% on my endeavors. Although he did not have much formal education, he successfully provided for his family and enabled me to attain a college education. He was not a demonstrative man, but I never doubted his love for me. As I get older and wiser, I appreciate the physical hardships he endured for his family. I love you daddy. May you rest in peace.
