    Words can't express what you meant/mean to me. Your presence in my life, especially in my early years showed me the picture of a Man. You were loving, supportive, protective, hard-working, funny and one of the coolest Dad's ever! Distance and/or time couldn't break our link cause you were always a call away. Even when you had much going on yourself and life was being unkind to you, you took the time to listen, offer advice or make it a teachable moment and would tell me how to do something myself so I didn't have to wait on anyone. The genuine love you showed me has/will stay with me my lifetime and I will never forget you. Although I've cried and probably will shed more tears, I am so blessed to of had you in my life and find comfort in knowing I have another angel to watch over me. Until we meet again, I love you and know you're in heaven 'Shob as a Tack' with a Kangol or Fedora hat slightly tilted/turned to one side.
