I will tell you that I was never the best son a father could have, but when push came to shove this man was here for me and I tried to be there for him. Later in life he brought religion, family value back into my desparte life. I also think at some point I did the same for him and I could not have done it with out him. Now I leave verona but I will never forget people like the Shaw's or the Stack's or the Kirby's for that matter it was a great time that has ended and now we move on.
