Dear Dad, my hero, I will miss you every day. You've been a rock in my life. Someone I could always count on. So many, many great memories :-) You always knew how to make us laugh, and treated Mom so good! I love the smell of sawdust, because it reminds me of you! The hundreds of things you've made out of wood with your hands, (mostly for others), in your: "Ye Ole Shop" . Winding all your old clocks and having them all gonging at the same time. The funny quotes, jesters, and the artistic abilities that truly made you one of a kind, unique in every way. Good man that loved his family and showed it. I always knew you loved me <3 Loved the Lord by the life you lived. A man of few words, but said so much, even when it came to keeping us in line. Loved the old movies, hokey cowboy songs, and had a wealth of knowledge when it came to history and the military. Could fix anything, a very simple humble man, easy going and easy to please. Always ready to help anyone in need. I'm thankful for all the years I had with you and all that you taught me. Treasures in my heart! :) I know you're in Heaven, and I know I will see you again! I love you always and forever and will miss you! Til we meet again Love, Laura "Ordy"
