I know everyone thinks they have the best Dad but I know he was the BEST Dad to me! I remember the drives to and from my hockey games as he gave me words of encouragement the entire drive to and from and never once did he put any pressure on me to be a better player but the number one person I played for was my Dad as I never wanted to let him down! He was the most supporting Dad ever and always stuck by me even when he knew I was wrong. One time sticks out in my mind; I was playing baseball at age 12 and I was called out at first base, while I was walking behind the backstop I had a few choice words for the umpire as my Dad was viewing from the other side of the backstop. Of course the umpire threw me out of the game but my Dad immediately got right in the umpires face and stuck up for me even though he knew I was wrong! Great Man! He taught me how to raise my children, fight for each of them and even though he never said it, he taught me how to Never Never "ring the bell" (give up) on any thing in Life. He was the toughest man I knew as pain did not effect him even to the very end, he wanted to get up with all his kids help even though every part of his body hurt to no end. My Dad is my hero and my role model and we always had a great relationship, I will miss him every day of my life! I also want to commend my Mom as she took care of him to the end of his life as my Mom and my Dad are the best parents a kid could ask for. I love my Parents and I cherish the times I spent with My Dad! He gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me. Last words to my Dad the day he died. His eyes were closed, I said "Love you Dad" he popped open his eyes and responded with "I Love you Danny"! GREAT MAN AND HE LIVED A GREAT LIFE!
