So many wonderful memories come to mind when I think of my childhood with my father. I remember him at home in his office, sitting behind his desk. He would always have the fireplace blazing and a cup of creamy coffee in hand with two packs of sweetener at his side.
My father loved to entertain. Although we lived in a gated community, you would think our home was a public venue, because my father let everybody in. He loved having people around him. The television was always on the news channel while he told jokes, did magic tricks, and took photos with his fans.
My dad truly was and will always be "the people's champ." He has always lived his life to make others happy — not just the people in his circle, but all people. I can remember my father going out of his way to put a smile on complete strangers' faces.
