• My dad, Dave “Pappy” Ritter would have been 90 years old this week. He passed away in 2014. I spent many years of my adulthood thinking of how I would distinguish myself from my father, what I would do differently, etc. After a while, it dawned on me that I was resisting – and not embracing – his wonderful values, attributes, and overall character. His favorite phrase – which is engraved on his gravestone – was “Love is the answer, what’s the question?” Thankfully I woke up before it was too late and spent a lot of great times with my dad and allowed his example, guidance, and love enter my heart.
