A Father And A Fighter


Beautifully written and Powerful! I didn't know all that about your father. Thank you for sharing this Jenny.

Wow Jen what a story. Your Father was an amazing, wonderful man who was not afraid to stand up for what is right. You and your family can be very proud of this man.

jennie, i'm stefi's mom. i remember your father very well altho not personally. my father, a generation before, was a union organizer. he wound up getting beaten and in jail several times, scary for my mother. your father was so impressive and strong minded. he was a hero and we need someone like him now more than ever. your tribute was beautiful. we all miss him.

Beautiful narrative. Your dad would have been proud of all of you. I learned a lot reading it. Thanks for sharing!
