"My father, John, is my hero. He has been a hard worker and an inspiration to his 4 children. Coming from very little he has made it so his children could have a life that he never has been able to have. He is the first one to encourage and support us to follow our dreams. After 31 years with a company he has been let go, he sees it as early retirement! Even when the tough happens he always looks on the positive things in life. He plans on spending his new free time working in soup kitchens and helping others, still setting a great example to his kids. My dad, an awesome man, my hero!"
