I know I was his only child and the one person he loved most in the world. And I am grateful for that...but I am not the only one who will miss him. I wish to extend my deepest condolences to every member of his family and all his friends. We were all so lucky to have shared experiences with a truly special man. When I remember his spirit...I will remember a Daddy filled with love, a gentle soul, brilliant, funny, curious, unorthodox but thoughtful, a true patriot, and a genuinely kind man. I will miss him endlessly as I know everyone will.
