How do you measure the life of a man? He was successful if he lived well, laughed often and loved much. He was honorable if he looked for the best in others while always giving the best he had. His life was full if he gained not only the respect of intelligent men but also the love of innocent children. And while there is no measurement to express how much he will be missed, we take comfort in his teachings and his memory and we thank him for leaving the world a better place than he found it. Rest in peace Dad. Kiss Mom for us. We love you.
