A tribute to my dad......

If you know my dad then you know his obsession with music. We joke with him that when he drives he watches the radio rather than the road. He loves having his sons & son-in-laws around so he can talk music with them. Ask him any music trivia & he will give you the answer.
Our kids are sure that when it is my Dad's time to go he will die laughing. When we spend time with my parents their goal is to see how soon til Grandpa laughs. He makes you laugh when he laughs. He stops breathing & looses all control. It is a great show. My parents home is a home filled with much joy & laughter:)
My Dad is wearing the tie-die shirt. My Dad would wear one to work if he could. I am sure he will wear one in his coffin. When my little brother had back to school night one time he begged my Dad not to wear his tie-die shirt & of course my Dad did. Griffin was horrified.
My Dad is a great uncle.
Most of all my Dad is an amazing grandpa. Our kids love him & we are so glad to have them living back in Utah.

I am so thankful to have been blessed with such a great DAD! He always encouraged us to go after our talents & develop them. But most importantly I am glad he taught us to laugh & laugh hard.
