    On February 27 at 4:05 pm I lost my hero.
    My dad was the wisest person I knew not because he was perfect, he was far from perfect.
    My Dad was the wisest person I knew because he taught me what’s important in life. My dad was the wisest person I knew because he taught me how to hear the many songs the birds would sing when you would just listen.
    My dad was the wisest man I knew because he taught me how to see the beauty in even the darkest night. My dad was the wisest man I knew because he showed me what hard work was and that nothing is free. My dad showed me that if I was going to do something I needed to give my best and do my best or I just shouldn’t even try. My dad taught me to see beauty in things that people take for granted everyday, the trees, the water, the birds. Nature was my daddy’s church and he found god in the woods and with his help he created a beautiful place which praised god and all that he created. My dad was not perfect but he did his best to teach us that life can be simple and that beauty is all around us if we just take the time to look. My dad was the wisest man I knew because he knew who he was, he tried to be better than he was the day before and because he did his absolute best in letting me know he loved me and for that I will never forget him, his hard work and all the life lessons he taught me. For that I am forever grateful.
