    Father – Bobby Jewell
    by – Dora Partin

    I would like to tell you what makes my dad so special. Dad is not only special to me, but to most anyone, who has had the opportunity to know him.

    My dad is the most good-hearted, caring and loving person in the world. He always has a smile on his face and a kind word to say.

    Dad has touched the lives of so many in the Grant County community. When they were sad, troubled or down and out, dad never turned anyone away, but helped them in someway.
