I miss you, Dad

Today has been a bit of a blue day.  It's been 10 years since my father passed away.  My love for fine furniture came from him.  He and my grandfather opened their first furniture store in 1949.  I had the pleasure of working with my dad for 25 years.  I learned so much from him, and loved having that time with him.  He was a gentle and kind person.  Our business slogan was "Nice People, Nice Things".  Very hokie, eh?  That is who he was. 

I could write volumes on what he meant to me, but I'll keep it simple for now.  I miss you, Dad.
