"My 'dad' married my mom when she had three kids already, all under the age of 5. He was an Airman First Class in the Air Force.
Mom and Dad went on to have 2 kids of their own and the 7 of us were very happy! My dad was such an amazing man. When my biological father became ill with MS and was living with his parents, my dad used to go pick him up and the two of them would go get haircuts together. He went on to become a Purple Heart recipient during the Korean War.
My dad never judged a soul in his life and he taught me what being a good human being is all about. He was one of the most selfless people I've ever known and it was my honor to call him Dad. He even waited until we were old enough to choose to be adopted by him and take his name, which we all did because he was Dad, in every sense of the word!
He truly was one of the most honest, generous and loving men I've ever known and I had the wonderful blessing of calling him my dad!"
