Today would've been my dads 48th birthday

Not a day goes by that I don't think about him. I hadn't realized how much influence he had on my life until he was gone. I don't think there is one part of my life that doesn't have his name written all over it.

The saddest part of his death is the regret, him and I didn't have the best or the worst relationship, but it could have been better than it was. I at least got to express my love for him 1 week before his death, so I can know that he at least knew that I truly did love him, even though I never really showed it.

I know his life has ceased, but his legacy will live on forever. He was bigger than life, he walked into a room and people noticed. If you were seriously into lifting in Omaha, Nebraska, you knew who Mick Manley was. Even if you only met him once, he made an impact on your life, good or bad, it was impacted. He was the type of person you either loved or hated, sort of like myself.
