To Dad – for letting us jump on the beds when Mom wasn’t home; for turning a blind eye when we popped crackers in our mouths; for spreading peanut butter mixed with maple syrup on crackers as a snack; for not scolding us when we dug up the septic tank in the backyard; for walking us down to the farm at the end of the street so we could “watch the cows come in”; for taking us to historical places and making every trip an adventure; for always being there in a crisis; for loving my mother, and for walking me down the aisle.
