…and he replied, “Crazy. Wanna come?”

My dad is cool.

He is a sailor, a salesman, and a sunset seeker.

He is a faithful Jayhawk fan and the life of the party. 

...you little jerk!

...you little jerk!

He knows how to be spontaneous and his fun-making is contagious.

He is thorough, tasteful, street smart, and a monkey wrench thrower. 



He is an idea man and a joker; his “No’s” always mean “Yes”.

He is an early bird and the last minute guy and I guarantee you won’t find a harder working dog than him!

Happy Birthday, DAD! 

Thank you for showing me how to do things the right way and giving me a spirit of adventure. 

I love you.

    “Crazy, wanna come” is one of my favorite Jen sayings from college. That and the corn song. I might need you to sing that for me soon. I feel a phone date coming on!

    KATIE! I miss you! I completely forgot about the corn song. Oh, my, my, my, my, my…that brings back some fantastic memories. And I totally stole the “crazy, wanna come” quote from my dad!

    Loved the pictures of your dad/my brother! And you summed him up better than anyone – he is a cool dad and has always been a great brother!
