To You Dad: I will miss your humor, your stories, and how sentimental you were, which in turn I am too. Tears at the end of watching a good Western, The Searchers, and how we could barely get through a dinner prayer without breaking down. Thank you for teaching me how to balance a spoon on my nose and how important a good laugh is. I will miss our talks, disagreements, and making you dinner. Your stories, family history and photography. And the fact that you have always supported me in my love of art. I love you.
