My Father: J. Juan Reid

San Diego, CA view map

I loved my Dad, and he always supported me. He didn't show me love directly (hugs or good job son) but he helped me get good jobs, encouraged me to excel, and bragged about me to others. His last words to me as I sat at his deathbed after I said, "I love you Dad", were "Don't cry Son!"

Now 30 plus years later I realize that much of my sense of humor and enjoyment of being in the limelight regaling folks with stories come from DAD.

What a wonderful tribute you have given to your Dad. You are a fortunate son to have had such a father.
