Dad, my memory has drastically faded as I have aged, but the things you taught me, and the love I have for you have not. From the day I was born, you have been there to wipe my tears when...
A few years ago, on a trip to Charleston, my husband and I were arguing over the settings of the air conditioner (I just do not understand why he likes cold air on his feet, I like my feet...
