Dad taught us that we could fight, laugh and joke, cry, and believe in others and ourselves. But the main thing he taught his children and others was to be strong. Sometimes his hard messages were difficult to receive but as we grew into adults some of them made sense.
Now that we are older we hold ourselves accountable to the values that he set forth....hardworking, strong, faithful, humorous, and most of all show that you have integrity. He would want us to stand up for what we believe in and never give up on ourselves or others.
