Not only is he always available for my kids, he is always there when we (my siblings and spouses) need him. If Mike is trying to do something handy, I always tell him to call my dad. If we are fishing and have a question, Mike calls my dad. If we are camping and something goes wrong, Mike calls my dad. If something is wrong with the car, we call my dad. If something is wrong with our toilet, we call my dad. Whatever the problem is my dad always has the answer.
I am grateful that I was born to this amazing couple! I wouldn't be who I was today without both of my parents guiding and teaching me by example. Happy Birthday Dad and Grandpa Pops! Love you so much!
