Today has been a bit of a blue day. It's been 10 years since my father passed away. My love for fine furniture came from him. He and my grandfather opened their first furniture store in 1949. I had the pleasure of working with my dad for 25 years. I learned so much from him, and loved having that time with him. He was a gentle and kind person. Our business slogan was "Nice People, Nice Things". Very hokie, eh? That is who he was.
I could write volumes on what he meant to me, but I'll keep it simple for now. I miss you, Dad.
