Sharing a memory from just 2 weeks ago. While visiting my Dad he liked to dose off from time to time. As I sat looking at him dosing he raised his head and looked me straight in the eyes and he had the best most natural smile on his face I had ever seen in my lifetime with him. It will be forever imprinted in my heart. Love You Dad
