IÂ lost my dad in 2001. I didnâ€™t like him much as a kid. As an adult, however, I learned that I was the problem, not him. Once I grew up, I found out he was almost always right, and that I wasnâ€™t. He truly was a great guy and I really appreciated him all thru my 20â€™s, 30â€™s, and 40â€™s. How I wish I could still have his advice and coaching.
Field Of Dreams was his favorite movie of all time. I think he watched it about 50 times. Iâ€™ve teared up and thought of him every time Iâ€™ve ever watched it. Â
More than anything he taught me not to quit. If you start something, youâ€™ve got an obligation to finish it. Thatâ€™s was never more true than during the last year. Itâ€™s beenÂ the most trying period of my life. Iâ€™ve been keeping 50 different plates spinning, and juggledÂ another 50 balls, but I survived, no thanks to great teaching from Sam.
I stuck it out, and dedicate VVV to him. Heâ€™d be proud.Â Â
