“There’s a lot that you miss, but to pinpoint one thing, I think it’s hard,” said Hoke, his voice choked and his eyes reddened. “He was your biggest fan and your biggest critic.”

Me too, buddy. 2 years later I still play back that night over and over in my head. What could I have done differently......would it have helped? Still stings.

Lost my dad 4 years ago this coming August and, while we had a rocky relationship, I miss him & Sunday will be a tough day (Father's Day)!

2002 at 87, miss him every day. Founded our company and passed it on to me when he turned 65 with none of the drama that usually entails.
