It is with the heaviest of hearts that I share we recently had to say goodbye to my dad, Rudy, a man whose mere physical presence had the power to shift an entire room. Combined with his boisterous laugh and undeniable charm, he was a man respected and adored by many. My dad was undeniably the most important and influential man of my life, and although we know he is still here with us and continues to watch over us, he is so dearly missed.
I am who I am today because of the father you were everyday. I love you, dad, and I will miss you everyday for the rest of my life.
