Your father's stories have made an impact on me, too, and that is the wonder of parents teaching their children lifetime values. My father was a farmer who faced life with integrity. "My handshake is the only contract you need." "Never judge a man by the cut of his coat. A rich man may be broke. A poor man may have savings." "Don't take your troubles to bed. You can see them better in daylight." I miss him and mother dearly. Thank you kindly for sharing your father's stories.
