    To My Mom (Loretta Day)

    There’s a thing when you go fishing. The person in the front of the boat catches more fish than the person in the back of the boat. It’s just the angle. Whether your bass fishing early in the morning at Skagg’s Creek the person in the front of the boat throws out first and has a better angle than the person in the back of the boat. Or crappie fishing up against a log at Beavercreek, the person in front is on top of the fish and the person at the back of the boat can’t get to the log because the other person is in front of him. Dad always put the other person he was fishing with in the front of the boat. He always wanted the other person to catch more fish than he did. He always thought about the other person more than himself.
    The thing I admired about dad was that he loved you mom! He always put you first. He loved Ercell Jr, Janne Lynn, and myself but you Mom were always number one to him. Sometimes when I talked to him, when you were at work, he would say I am worried about your mom. I am worried about your Mother he would say. Whether it was your blood pressure or your cholesterol he was worried. Even the day before he passed away, he turned to you and asked you if you were okay. “Are You Alright”, he said. Dad was on his final days but he cared about you the most mom. You were number one.
    Dad loved you mom, and he always put the other person in the front of the boat. I will surely miss him.
