It has been four years since I lost my father, I still think of him everyday. This week I will release my new book called 'Dad's Desperate Wisdom and other Odds&Ends.' It is filled with many stories, opinions, jokes, and quotes by and about my father. The title story is true as best I can remember it. This true story happened when I was 11 years old and the events therein changed the way I saw my dad and it also taught me how a quick thinking man like my father could lead and preserve his family in the time of grief, fear, calamity, and sadness. His instant wisdom was our saving grace during this trying period in our young lives. I can say that I am a different kind of person because of my emulation of this great man.
