Dad had a great sense of humor, loved to laugh and make people laugh. And when we were growing up, he filled the house with music of all kinds. Louis Armstrong, Al Martino, Barbara Streisand, Herb Albert Dean Martin. We listened to music at dinner every night! He was a passionate man about so many things.
