My Best Man

Well Dad this is to you. You are the best man in my wedding. I love you. My dad grew up as one of eleven kids, so he knows a lot about a lot of things. You can not be 1 of 11 and not figure out how to survive, how to compromise and how to be a good leader or follower. My dad has taught me all of the above.
