I didn't know your father as well as I would have liked. As far as I could tell he was pretty much your quintessential Midwest farmer. The kind of guy you could depend on to take care of his family and neighbors. I know that your folks and mine both tolerated a whole lot of basement role-playing and general shenanigans throughout our teen years. I do smile when remembering the "magnetic earing incident." Anything you need, brother, you have only to ask.
