It's been 25 years today since we lost you. I was only 9 at the time. I never got to know you as well as I would have liked. I'll always be curious about what qualities we share and what you would think of me and Jennifer -and your grandchildren now.
You weren't deputy Cokeroft to me you were just "dad". I remember the way you looked in your uniform and the way you smelled. I remember how you taught me to add and subtract. I remember how you wrote a song for me and Jenn one night when you tried to teach me to play guitar. I'll always smile when I think of these things. I'm glad that if we had to lose you, it was in service to others.
I'm thankful for the kind words of all the others that have posted here in preserving my father's memory.
