  he loved my mom I think more then anything, but definatly us kids too. He was the glue that held us together come to find out. Rhonda and I were fortunate to have him in our lives at a very young age, and many memories we could probably type for days. But what stands out the most about this remarkable man on his birthday is who he was. He was a gambler for shure, he would help anyone. He loved driving, whether it be a car or the big rigs he loved the most. He was a very giving man, even in the end he gave us his all. He passed gently and in an blink of an eye as peaceful as anyone has ever. It was quiet and where he wanted to be and I am at peace knowing this much. I miss you and love you so much and wish you were here, if nothing else just to give me  shit about anything and everything as usual. My life is forever changed without you and bettter because of you. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND HOLD YOU TIL WE MEET AGAIN.  I love you.
