We didn't always agree. We didn't always get along. You had your ways about things and was stubborn as a mule but you were always there with advice (nagging at me to check my oil, get new tires, call Carl and get that fixed! lol). You loved us (Patti, Troy and I) as your own children and loved all the grandbabies. You instilled in us to work and work hard for what we wanted out of life and stressed the importance of having a savings account. You always did your best to help me and all of us when you could. I'm really gonna miss ya pop!
