Some vintage pics of my dad and I: teaching me how to swim, with me on a kid's train, and holding me next to my winning essay for a city essay contest.
I will always love and be grateful for my dad, especially after almost losing him about a year ago. I really couldn't have asked for a more involved ans hardworking dad. On top of the fact that he worked a full time job to support a family of 5, on top of the fact that his job required a 1 hour commute back and forth from our home, he NEVER missed an activity in Alamogordo and almost never missed an activity that was out of town. So many times, he would drive STRAIGHT from working all day to one of my or my siblings activities. Track meets, swim meets, band events, orchestra events, soccer, academic awards, you name it, he was there. He never tried to say he was too tired or wasn't interested. There were no excuses. He taught me how to ride a bike and how to drive a car, along with so many other things. I am so lucky and proud to have him as a father. Everyone should be so lucky.
