It took growing older and having my own children for me to truly understand the magnitude of what he had done for me. More than leaving us with assets and businesses to run, he left all of us with confidence in ourselves, and to this day I believe that is the greatest gift a parent could ever give a child.
So this blog doesn't have any jokes in it, and it's not very long. But maybe it's a reminder that while first impressions are important, it's the lasting impressions that count. It's a legacy of empowerment that I will do my best to duplicate with my own children.
