SOME OF THE THINGS I ADMIRE MOST ABOUT MY DAD
Still gets up at 3:30 every Friday and Saturday morning to work at the Timpanogos Temple.
Is always the first person up--every day--and then greets anyone who sleeps in after 8 with "Good Afternoon".
Always serving. He often not only takes out his garbage can on garbage day, but the neighbor's as well--and then puts all the cans back after the garbage truck comes.
Can still walk faster than almost anyone I know.
Organized--with a capital O. (I did not inherit that gene)
Always a teacher--When I wrote letters home from my mission he would circle in red the misspelled words.
Defender of the faith
Honest--more so than anyone else I have ever met in my life.
A powerful example of diligence and enduring to the end.
Athletic--go see the pictures on last year's post to see what I mean.
Adventurous!! (Still doesn't pass up an opportunity to do something fun)
And a great care giver. He has been helping care for my mother this past year with patience and love. His example has been inspiring.
