I believe my father was the greatest man I have ever known. Today I had breakfast with my son-in-law, Terry Gates. As we talked and said a prayer, I felt his hands. They were hardened from continual work, yet gentle enough to hold a tiny baby. As we parted he told me that he loved me and he placed the most gentle kiss on my forehead as if God himself was speaking to me and telling me that it is OK. I will never forget. And I realize that I have another man in my life equally as great as my father! I am so fortunate to have known two such great men!
