  • ⭐ I remember one time asking my dad If some people didn’t have to get shots?, (because I was scared of needles) and my dad said “sure”, He gave me a glimmer of hope for a minute, until he finished with “Sure, Dead people”..Always a jokester that guy! -Larena
  • ⭐ My dad (Howard) was a bargainer, even on his death bed he was buying and selling goods, He would call me to his bedside and hold up two plates and ask me, “Do you think these match?” -Susan
  • ⭐ When I would ask my dad “Where are we going?” He would always answer “Crazy!” -Curt
  • ⭐ I have great fishing memories with my dad! -Dwaine
