He is my grandfather but has also been my father figure for 30 yrs. He has taught me the finest things of how to be a man. Like how to fix broken things on the car or around the house. He has taught me how to respect others but most of all respect myself. He taught me how to defend myself but also how it takes a bigger man to turn the other cheek and walk away. He has taught me how life is to short so have fun. But also taught me how to earn a dollar for a hard days work. These are just some of the reasons he is my hero. Because the list could go on for miles. But the biggest lesson he has taught is never lose your faith in God with him anything and everything is possible.
