John Flanagan: Nice testimony and tribute to your father and your husband. My father also influenced me a great deal and always wanted the best for our family. He was hardworking, honest, respectful, and like most Irishmen, very opinionated. The Irish love to argue, especially about politics, and he did this with aplomb. He is still living, 94 years old, in Florida. He has a failing memory now, but can still talk and debate like always. Growing up, he tended to argue on behalf of the Democrats, while I tended toward either independent or Republican. Political debates were fun in a way, even when father and son are on opposite sides. We could laugh about these differences, then we would conclude our debates with the recognized fact that the world will go on despite what we had to say about it. My father is a good man.
