    Loved your dad! Two outstanding memories..the few days my ssister and her husband, my son, Jay, and i spent on the houseboat and years later another boat story, getting my sister in her wheelchair on the boat for an afternoon. The only one that thought this was possible was your Dad and he saw to it that it happened. Other memories when we were kids growing up but enough for now,
