As a child you can never be expected to grasp the sacrifices and commitments your parents have made for you daily. You can never appreciate what they have given up or dreams they have forgotten to give you a life of opportunity and hope. Vergil gave up his first car (1957 ford meteor) to get a bigger car for his young family, moved away from his home and family (Sheregrove MB) to provide for his own family and help out his parents on the farm, spent months away from his young family building a career and lost his oldest daughter 1979 and wasn’t there to hold her hand one last time. To some, you measure a man by his wealth and others his accolades or degrees and others there achievements. For me its a special blend of integrity, honesty, loyalty, faith, commitment and honour that is the true separation of who a man is and what a man has done. At 84yrs Dad lost his battle to cancer which was a result of acid reflux...go figure, of everything else that could have taken his life it ends up being acid reflux due to silent heartburn..speechless. Vergil never really asked for a lot, a simply conversation or an afternoon visit to catch up and sometimes a strong back but that was very rare. During his final days he never let on that he was in pain or wanted to burden anyone with his condition or desperation, he simply wanted to live out his final days with the person that gave his life meaning...his wife of 58yrs. From your weekly calls to check in to your fatherly advice regarding all matters of life you will be missed and as that child who is now a man and also a father your shoes fit quite comfortably thanks to everything you’ve taught me over my life. Thank you dad and enjoy your next journey to wherever you roam and hope to see you riding that that brad new JD lawnmower you always wanted...love you always.
