Dad died around July1st, I believe, in 1984 at the age of 51. He was my hero, and always will be. I've tried to emulate him, by being a good, honest person, and a great husband and father. And also by enjoying life and doing my best to have a good time while I'm here. I think he would be proud of me, as I was of him.
Love you Dad! I miss you. Happy Birthday.
