He was over 6 foot tall
He fought in WWII and received a medal of honor.
He worked two or three jobs during the holidays just so Christmas would be magical.
He could swing me high up into the air and I always felt safe.
He taught me how to ride my bike.
He would always pick me up when I fell.
He is still around, at 96
His over 6 foot frame has receded to a somewhat stooped appearance since he uses a walker to get around.
He still tells me the same corny jokes and makes me laugh
He has a great sense of humor and often brags, how all the widows in assisted living where he lives, are after him.
And I know that he would still pick me up if I fell.
This is no average Joe but my dad. To others he may look average but to me he will always be my Superhero.
So what I have learned from my dad is how to be a good person and great parent and to always be there for the ones you love.
Love you dad, you have taught me well.
