Today marks th 38th anniversary of my Dad’s death. I’ve written about it before and each time there is a different reflection for me. I’m in Arcade, NY getting my oil changed. On my way I passed the cemetery where his remains rest. On my way here I called my own son to say hello and tell him that I loved him. If there is one thing I learned in the last 38 years it is the importance of telling your children that you love them. That’s more important than anything you could ever give them. I have no doubt that Dad loved me but it was a sentiment he didn’t often express. His gift to me, my wife and children has been the legacy of letting others know that you love them. Do it often! I love you Dad and I still miss you. So many great memories. I hope you tell someone that you love them today.
