My father is the strongest man I’ve ever known. Throughout his life, he had many professions from being in the army to working at a bank, but most of all he was a fighter. Any battle life threw at him, he fought to get through it and won. Unfortunately, prostate cancer is a battle he sadly lost October 22, 2011. He once said his greatest achievement in life was having me as his daughter and I’ve never been more proud to have a man like him as my father. He was one of a kind, and I am honored to say I am so much like him. He was a loving father, son, brother, and uncle whom we will never forget. “God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can and Wisdom to know the difference” Amen.
