    What a full and wonderful life your dad had. And so funny! (You know how much I admire the funny.) You are a lucky woman to have had him for as long as you did. :)

    What a wonderful tribute!! His personality comes through loud and clear. What a guy! So sorry for your loss. You know he is with you always, right? Always and forever. Love never dies. He is there with you every time you smile, when you cry, when you write something clever. Your love blesses you both. May this give you peace as well. Love you, Vic!
