He's still going strong at 87.
He teases and smiles and his eyes twinkle.
We're all so lucky to have him in our lives.
He was the strong male presence that led me out of hard times in my young life.
He gave me 100% of his confidence and I did everything I could to live up to that.
Early on I decided I had to make a choice, what kind of person do I want to be? I wanted to be like him, strong, smart, friendly, helpful, supportive, funny, subtle, considering, thoughtful, loving.
Life is good.
