Goodbye to a Good Man
By Kim Steinberg
Those who have good fathers often take them for granted, as they should. A good father is wise and kind, he advises, he becomes a rock in times of trouble.
Marvin, my husband’s dad, was an example to me of what a father should be. I see his legacy in my husband Si, who sings his way through life, who is himself an exceptional father, and in the values Marvin passed down: hard work, education, fun, and laughter. He had time for other people. Time for a walk, time to go fishing, time to play cards, time to talk and listen. He was peaceful and comforting to be with. If I measured his accomplishments by the people he touched, his life was a full room.
