This week I lost a father..
He was great influence on me. He taught me to go on even when it gets hard. He taught me to never give up. He taught me to do the right thing when all others would not have. Taught me a work ethic that few will ever have. Taught me how to share what you have. How to walk life as a man. I saw how he influence many in a positive way. I was bless to know him.

His stories will live on for many generations to come. I don't know if he would have approved of all my decision but even the wrongs ones were of value to me. As a veteran of WWII he did not like what was going on in this country and thought poorly of our policies and how things were shaping up. He lived simple and wanted very little. He love his wife Lou and all of his children. I don't like it but i will go on. No words will do justice for what I felt for him . I will miss him deeply.

Kelly I am sorry for your loss of your father. You describe your father as a man of Integrity and good firm values. He will have forged these values in you whilst you were being nurtured which is why you can be positive about moving on in life despite how you have now lost him. These values and good work ethic will provide you with stability and Hope in a future where you will be able to grieve and move on because of the man your father was. Best wishes for your future.
