My Hero

My hero even after 50 years...

Even after 50 years my DAD is my hero. For 53 years he has provided a comfortable living for my mom. A year ago he took my mom home after being told she was at the end of her life. He refused to put her in a nursing home which was suggested by her doctor and nurses and has taken extra steps and even given up some of the things he enjoys doing to make sure she is taken care of. My mom is still with us and I think she is healthier than she has been in the past. He taught me what hard work was even though when I was 10 years old I thought he was the meanest DAD. Through trials and errors of my 50 years of life I can now say that my dad was and is my best mentor and I would not change anything. Thanks DAD!!

Harry saved my life,When the Dr. said that i was going to die in six months and I should be in the nursing home and he said no. He brought me home and we have made the Dr. eat his words now for almost 1 1/2 yrs.It is all due to him doing it ALL.

Gramps number 1...He's always there to support me when I need him. Over the years of watching him, my dad and my uncle with the local fire department it has been an insperation to follow them in their footsteps.

Grampa house is the best grandpa you can ask for. He treats all of his grandkids even. Grandpa should win this contest because he is always there for us all. I wish all the kids in the world could have a grampa like mine. I believe Grampa should win.

I have known Harry for 20 plus years. He always has a smile on his face and a story. Sometimes it makes you wonder what he is up to. He is an all around good guy and he raised a heck of a daughter.

Harry is my brother's closest friend and his daughter has been my best friend for years. His humor really gets to me buying all the cordonblu so there's none left for me and then trying to get on my good side buying me some black licorice! It works
