I adore this man.
My stepdad is one of my all time best friends and I miss him terribly.
Whenever I've needed to vent, he's listened. When I've cried, he's emphatically said, "Get over it!"
((My stepbrother snapped these photos when Sarge [yeah... that's what we call him] traveled South to watch my lovely niece graduate from HS.... Wish I could've been there, too :) ))
