My name is John. I have known Walt and his family for many years. One of my best memories of Adolf happened about two summers ago at the annual Memorial Day party. We live in PA. It's about a one hour drive down to Walt's house. We were running late getting out of the house. I remember that I was worried about one of my sons, he had some issue that we were trying to help him through. Also, on Friday, I found out that my company was going through another round of lay-offs. Another banner holiday for my family. I was in no mood for a party. Anyway, on the way down to Baltimore, my wife and I bickered about something stupid. It was really silly looking back on it now. By the time we get to the party, we are way late and I have to find a parking place. I was ready to just turn around and go home. I decided to stay, but I was in no mood to party. I figured I get a beer, find a quiet place and drink. I said hi to everybody, and I was headed for the TV. I just wanted to be left alone. I was headed for the kitchen, when out of the corner of my eye, I saw Adolf looking my way. I wasn't going in without saying hi to my bud. We shook hands and he took one look at me and said "Do you want to go to my house and try some homemade beer?" For the first time that day, I had to smile. We went down his basement and drank some beer, joked, laughed, and told some stories. The beer was pretty good, I must say. He showed me where he worked out in the morning and showed me his German music tapes. He had his laundry on the table folded and organized. He was very proud of this you see, because he never has to put the clothes away. All he had to do was pick what he wanted to wear that day, and leave the others there for another day. No need to put them away. The man was a genius. His logic sounded good to me, and the fact that his wife was visiting his daughter worked out good too. He laughed and looked at me, and said "I will have to clean this up before my wife gets home or I'll catch hell." I told you he was a wise man. Anyway, another beer and couple more jokes and we were done. We headed back to the party. I guess the point of this story is that when I came to this party, I felt like I was 80 years old. Weary, tired, beat and physically and mentally diminished. We were probably over his house for an hour or less. We had a couple of home made beers and some laughs. Yet when I came out of that house, and headed back to the party, I felt like ten years had come off me. How does that happen? I went back to the party and had a ball. I told you he was a genius. I guess Adolf learned early in his life that enjoying life whenever you can is in fact the essence of what life is all about. He came from a war torn country, and came to a new place to start over again. Every day, I'm sure was a challenge. He knew how important laughter and fun was. You taught me a valuable lesson that day, Adolf. You have my respect and I am honored to have known you my friend. Sweet, sweet dreams my friend. The next beer I drink will be in your honor.

Before my operation while I was still working, I worked about 15 hours a day. When I got home, I barely had time to eat and then go right to bed. Even though my parents lived next door, I wasn't able to see them much except for the weekend. I had both of my knees replaced in July. Since then, I've been rehabbing. I feel blessed that during my time of rehab, I had the opportunity to see so much of dad. He drove me to every one of my rehab appointments and waited patiently until I was done and then drove me home. We went shopping, did errands and had lots of time to just talk. With him being gone now, I feel so blessed that I was able to have that time with him these past few months. Even though I was spent the last several months in pain during my recovery, I'll treasure that time with my dad for the rest of my life.
