He was generous as well when I married and his gift helped us purchase our first home. Poor Dad, we married the day before the Bears won the Super Bowl. I think that whole weekend was a foggy haze for him. But his beloved Bears pulled it off, and so
did his daughter! To this day he continues to love and support all of us. He turned 81 in March and we're so fortunate to still have him around to love and tease. He's the patriarch of our family, supporting and loving his deceased younger brothers family as well. We all look up to him and appreciate the long hours of hard work he did to give us all the life we enjoy today. He loves being a grandfather and great-grandfather these days. Thanks Dad for all that you do for your whole family! We love you.
