• My dad was with us for only 14,159 days.  Here was my diary entry on the day I turned 14,159 days.

• 14,159

It seem strange to look back,
and realize two thirds of my life
has been without him.

I feel young,
and there’s much yet to do.

I’ve lived long enough to realize
that life can be hard.

Most are strong enough
to survive.

Letting nature decide their fate.

We want our children
to be better than us.

Make them stronger.
Give them confidence.

I hope to do better for my boys.

Life & Hope

I looked up to my dad to no end.

He was brave.
Escaping a repressive regime
for a better life.

He was a black belt.
Leading Lokomotíva Judo,
and a Slovak champion.

He was a skilled veterinarian.
The only honors graduate
in his class.

He was a teacher.
Setting his ego aside
to be a student.

His clients loved him,
his friends loved him,
his family loved him.

He was charismatic,
he was charming,
and he was handsome.

He playing banjo,
and the trumpet
and he told me stories.

He built a deck,
he built a pool,

and always built for his family.

He was sensitive,
and emotional.
Words touched his soul.

He was a loving father,
a loving husband,
and he was awesome.

A better man
could not have existed
on this earth.
