My dad is an awesome 84 year old man. When I recall my years growing up, one of the things that strikes me was what a good listener he was – at each stage of my life, he never failed to simply let me talk!

He also had so many stories to tell – stories of yesteryears, real stories, made-up stories, stories with morals in them, stories of wisdom etc. I always looked forward to hearing them.
