tkm stay cool, our pal

this past week was my dads birthday.
my dad was amazing. 
we were all so lucky to have him in our lives & 
i love him very much. 
he was the life of the party, incredibly funny, smart & very loving. 
some of my favorite memories with him are just of sitting on his lap, 
while he rocked in his rocking chair singing willie nelson songs. 
i never heard him complain, i never heard him feel sorry for himself, 
he was strong & brave. 
he loved us kids & my mom with all his heart.
