My Pops lives his life respecting others, wanting everyone to laugh, always the last to leave and first to hold the door open to let you pass. I could not imagine a better father; it's the same type of dad I want to be: encouraging, teaching self discipline, enduring hardship, being creative, being a family, being a decent human being.
Today I enjoy many of the things that didn't come so easy when I was growing up. I wouldn't appreciate them as much if it wasn't for my dad showing me what hard work and selflessness can give to your soul - Now that's a life worth living.
Enjoy retirement Pops.
