My dad was a family man. Everything he did, he made sure it was for the best interest of his family. My best memories with him will always be summers at the beach, every Christmas with his “bubble lights” and icicle ornaments, and seeing him with my kids! My heart hurts but I’m so happy I got to hear you say I love you one last time. Forever my guardian angel. I love you dad!
