Dad, one thing is for sure: you kept us laughing…sometimes to mom’s chagrin. Thank you for Dad noises. And all the things that are illegal in 23 states. I enjoyed your dry, witty humor. Thank you for making me laugh. Thank you, for bringing Park University to my mind. I finished my Bachelors Degree with honors and some of your colleagues at Park University where you so enjoyed teaching. When yo became a teacher, you said your u had finally found your calling. I enjoyed sharing books with you. I love you always and forever. Paula Ludecke Mars
