My father passed away on November 18, 2001 from lung cancer. There are not enough words to express how amazing of a father, husband, brother and friend, and alarm salesman he was. Everybody loved him. He was an extremely giving person. One time, he let a homeless man come have a meal and take a shower at our house. He was so giving that when he was dying he wrote my sister and I birthday cards up until our 20s, he also wrote graduation cards and wedding cards for us. He even recorded a video for us. I haven't had the courage to watch it to this day. On my eighth birthday, he wrote me a song that he would play on the piano. I now have it framed and it will always be very special to me. My mom, sister, and I were spoiled to have him in our lives. He treated us like princesses not because of buying material things, but he was Mr. Mom. He would pick us from school, play with us, cook for us, clean the house and help my mom in a lot of ways. He taught me how to play the piano by ear. People say that I got his sense of humor and his good singing voice. I'm always flattered when people tell me that I remind them of him. I hope to one day find a man who can be as good of a husband and father as he was. There's a lot more that I could write, but I'm going to keep it short and sweet and share some pictures of him instead . He had these huge goofy glasses that I absolutely loved. When he finally got modernized glasses, I asked him to wear the old ones. A small part of my heart will always be missing. Nobody can ever replace my love that I have for my dad. I love you dad and I miss you every single dad. I am lucky to have had you in my life.
