George Kakouris - 23 years
Even though he has already been gone for 23 years, I am still not at the age that my father was when I was born. He was FORTY NINE when I was born. If Deanna and I had a child right now, I would have a heart attack.
Funny how time flies, though. It doesn't seem that long ago. Maybe because I keep him alive with jokes and stories with my kids and others. I usually start off BMX stories with "back in the old days when my dad drove me to races....", etc. Still sort of a heart break that my kids never knew him. Even Hanna, my oldest, missed him by almost 10 years.
