When asked what was the most significant and influential thing in Dad’s life, my brother answered he straightened me out. My mom said he adopted my children. My answer was he gave me his name. We all three answered at the same time. I was grown, married and had a child when he adopted me. I am proud to carry his name in my heritage.Send FlowersPlant a Tree
