                                                              To my Children,
                                                   During my life I have helped people,
                                                   During my life I have also brought harm,
                                                       I do not lay awake at night remembering  
                                                       the good things I've done.
                                                       Nor do I lose sleep pondering the bad.
                                                           Live your lives as YOU see fit.
                                                           Not as I've lived mine. And most of all,
                                                           Live your lives without regrets and
                                                          with grace,honor and dignity.
                                                                               Your Father
