    I know I don't post very often anymore, and I haven't been able to get to any games this year due to Grams being so ill.. But I wanted to share a tribute video made for my Father. It really captures him in his element, what he loved doing, and what he was so good at.One of the best.

    ♥ Dad ♥
    Dad, at the office, hanging out with all of his friends over the air waves. Touching so many hearts, and minds over the years, and loving every single minute he shared with his listeners. Flawlessly orchestrating his show with an incredible blending of technical skill, impeccable timing, intellectual quick wit, charismatic expression, and a seemingly infinite knowledge of musical artists and their works, down to a split second. Extraordinary to listen to, and so completely mesmerizing to visually see his ingenuity, and expertise in action. One of the greats!

    Good day, and goodbye, Dad.... until we can all be together again. I love you. :)



    Hugs gang.

    Sorry to hear of your loss........ your dad had the quintessential radio voice. He obviously loved what he did, and was very good at it. Back then, the DJ job was very hands on.

    The fact that his daughter would come into a forum like this,
    in hopes of letting others know what a great guy her dad was,
    suggests to me that, yes, he probably was a guy to brag about.
    This is a nice tribute, young lady. Sorry for your loss.

    Thank you, everyone, and ty Chispa via Buck. Aww, I didn't know about Howard mentioning him. I'll see if I can find a clip. Was he nice? lol
    I still sting a bit that Debs, his wife, left me out of the Obit.. But I guess she figured he was my step Dad.. Even if he is the only Dad I've known since 3. She did let me sign the guestbook, and now I've gotten emails from his family in Georgia who I haven't seen in 35 years. It's been nice catching up.
    I meant to make it back in sooner, but this dang convalescent hospital I have my Grams at violated her rights Wednesday, so I have been dealing with that. I had been very happy with the place since Sept 26th. They are bending over backwards now trying to rectify.. But I've lost my trust. So nerve wracking. I wish I could just take her home!!!

    p.s. boo Chargers yesterday.

    Thanks again you guys, and ty for watching. Hugsss
