Happy birthday to my dad, Lascelles, who would have been 89 years old today. I miss you, Daddy. I will be forever grateful that it was you who were my father, my role model, my protector, my champion, my guide. My life's blessings, too many to count, have issued from you and your beloved Gloria, my mom. That is forever true and I am forever blessed. Amen.
