      My dad is the best!! I love ❤️ Him with all my heart. I remember how he taught me how to ride a bike when I was a little kid,. Dad was always playing board games with the family, and as he got older the family played Left Right Center on many occasions because we all had a lot of fun and laughs with dad! Dad also taught me how to drive and these last few years of driving him, he was still the teacher in the passengers seat…slow-down, watch your speed etc. I guess he still sees me as his little girl. I was so happy to have had the last moments with my dad to tell him how much he meant to me and the greatest ❤️ I have for him. I will sadly miss my dad. Lori
