  • ‘At his best’

    My dad taught me how to do many things during his life.
    He taught me how to pick out the perfect walking stick during our hikes together, and that trail mix (with M&Ms) is a necessity during long walks.
    He taught me the significance and importance of good photography. The photos he took of my twin sister and me when we were younger are priceless in my eyes.
    And, while I didn’t realize it at the time, he taught me that running can be a way to escape the stresses of life, as well as stay in shape.

    God have mercy on us.
