Aka=stubborn!!! One of my mom’s biggest criticisms of dad was his stubbornness. In retrospect, it was probably one of his greatest strengths. From extremely humble beginnings, Dad survived WWII; earned a PhD; raised 5 relatively decent children; and retired early enough to enjoy strumming his bass, bicycling, and helping family as well as friends. Up until cancer took him down, Dad’s motto was live life to the fullest, keep moving forward, never quit!
