I use to go everywhere with my dad. For hours we would look at vehicles, motorcycles, etc. I would help him with his rental properties. I have so many memories of him and they were all good memories. He use to joke and tell people the reason I was always with him is because I was to ugly to kiss good-bye. He was my idol. I don’t know what life will be like without him because he was such a big part of mine. I am so grateful to have had my dad for 55 years. I will miss him every second of every day for the rest of my life. His loving daughter, Elizabeth
