My Dad (shown holding his granddaughter, Ellie, in 1996) would have been 84 years old today. He died in 2001. Parkinson's disease adversely impacted a good many of his adult years but I hope I have been able to teach my kids close to the many life lessons he taught us over the years. Probably the biggest was to always treat others as you would want to be treated. He was a very good man.
