Joan's Tribute to her Father

Driving down here from Minnesota, I kept thinking how much I am like my dad. He liked to travel, I like to travel. He was frugal, I am frugal. He had a quiet, easygoing nature, I have a quiet, easygoing nature. He was good with numbers, I am good with numbers. I also inherited his sense of social justice and concern for others. I am lucky to have had him for a dad.

-Joan Philips
