During the last weeks of his life, my Dad and I shared a lot of "quality time" during the long nights in his hospital room. He would say, "Nancy, what am I gonna do without you?" At the time, I thought we had much more time to spend together. Now, all I can think of saying is ... "Dad, what are we gonna do without YOU?" There will never be anyone like him, nor anyone that will love me (and our whole family) like he did. I miss him so much, and will always treasure every second we had together, everything he taught me, his sense of humor, (even his stubbornness) ... and his unconditional love. I am so proud to be your daughter, Dad. Love always....Nancy
