    1. My first adult trip to Florida with my dad. I had him all to myself (well without my sister) so that was a great time together.

    1. This really isn't a big thing, but its a memory that I won't forget. While washing dishes one day, my dad told me to turn the knives upside down in the dish drain so no one would accidently cut themselves.

    1. My dad was very easy going and mild mannered, I don't remember him ever really getting upset beyond control. He always seemed cool, calm and collected. I think I'm that way sometimes.

  4. 1 - My best memory thus far of my Dad is the warmth of his embrace as he's filled with emotion upon my initial entrance or exit of his presence. His embrace is priceless!
    2 - Lesson learned from Dad: Continue to live in my truth. If I don't like or believe in something, say something. I carry that with me in all facets of life; personal and professional.
    3 - I appreciate that I inherited my Dad's strongwill, hence the name DEEtermined. Oue drive and determination especially when we're passionate about something is through the roof.

  5. 1. The best memory of my dad is him calling me on the phone to teach me how to cook. But there is another my having baths with him which now would cause me to be free with him when he is old and I have to care for him.
    2. The love for cooking.
    3. The love of entertain family.

  6. 1. One of the best memories of my father was when I was sick in the hospital and they didn't know what was wrong with me. I had sat in the waiting room for 8 hours before even being taking me in the back. My dad came from work and sat with me all night. Washington Hospital Center was so busy that after a test I had to wait in the hallway. I was so sick and my dad never left my side. He even help clean me up when I went to the bathroom on myself. I remember saying to him after they gave me morphine not to leave me cause I didn't know how it would make me feel. I could tell that my dad was worried cause they didn't know what was wrong but he never once said anything. Once I finally had a bed I told him I wouldn't sleep until he went to sleep.

    2. One of the lessons that my father taught me was to always do the right thing no matter what. There were many times I didn't understand how my dad could always be so nice and willing to help people that I felt like didn't deserve it. My mom was the same way which is why I think they made an amazing couple. The thing that he taught me was it wasn't about them it was about us. We have to know that we are doing what is right and the rest will would out.

    3. One of the things that I wished I had inherited from my dad was being a person of many talents. My dad is a jack of all trades. My dad never ceases to amazes me with all that he can do. I guess raising 5 kids doesn't leave much money to pay a repair man so my dad fixed everything his self. I remember when my parents added the addition to our house my dad and his friends got together and did it themselves. If my dad doesn't know how to do it he will look it up and figure it out. My dad has really set the bar for my expectations from my husband.

  7. 1. My dad would drive me to Highschool if I missed the bus. He never got mad at me. He actually seemed to cherish as I did the quiet drive to school. He would listen to me talk. He wouldn't over talk me. He was a thinker. He would give advice if I wanted it. It always included a swing through our local donut shop. It was a blessing.


    2. To put Jesus first. He woke up daily to pray and do devotions. He was our spiritual leader. He gave me the gift of knowing Jesus was the way we should go in life. Our Rock.


    3. I wish I inherited his mathematical brain. I am thankful I inherited his quiet patient nature.
