"There is not a day that goes by that my Dad does not endlessly give his time, patience and devotion to me and my step-Mom. My Dad is no ordinary Dad. My Dad finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles he has had to face in his lifetime. And throughout those obstacles, there was never a time that he wasn’t by my side to coach, teach, lecture, advise and love me unconditionally. My Dad is one of the hardest workers that I have ever known, some days working 12 hours and yet still coming home with a smile and patience to hear about my day. My Dad is my voice of reason, my hand-holder, partner in crime, broken heart-healer, problem solver......my Dad is my best friend! My hero!"
Abigail Bass, of Bloomfield Hills
Dad: Bill Bass
(Winner of a Car Detailing Package from Classic Appreciation)
