My mother and father. Dad was a Marine who overcame an alcoholic, abusive, adulterous father who abandoned his seven children. My dad become uber dad to his five children, and six orphaned nieces and nephews, , uber municipal employee, Sunday School teacher and superintendent, boy scout leader, took his 4 daughters and mother in law camping, etc. I remember him taking me to deliver food baskets to the poor. I look in the basket and asked "Dad, why are we giving them books?" He replied "So their children have something to open for Christmas." Dad didn't talk the talk, he walked the walk.
