98 Years Old Today

Today is his birthday. If he had lived, he would be 98 years old today.

I really miss my dad.  He was a wonderful man.  He died when he was 77 years old.  Too young for me.  He was a wonderful person.  Very wise.  An entrepreneur who provided well for his family.  He was born before the "Wars" and lived through that and the stock market crash and the civil rights movement.  He accomplished a lot during a time when the country didn't give black men the time of day.  He inspired me to be all that I could be.

Happy Birthday Dad.

Thank you Diane. My father was a wonderful man who taught me a lot about business and life. He is deeply missed.

I also say Happy Birthday to Mr Wilde. Sounds like you take after him too, as he was a great man, and you have done very well too. Your father must be very proud of you and your accomplishments. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you Woollee for your very sweet words.
