A Parent Beyond Measure

The youngest of my four children, Aaron Mankin, is a grown man, single father of two small children, nationally known public speaker, and a medically retired marine who will always have to deal with the effects of war.  He has come to accept the scars he wears as badges of honor.  But the hidden scars are the nightmares he will deal with, in one form or another, for the rest of his life, and he does this with humor, humility and honor…

The difficulty of being a single father has been, at times, overwhelming.  But Aaron has risen to the needs of his children, and put his needs somewhere in the background.  His two children are loved and cared for so deeply; they always come first.

The parent he has become is beyond measure, and I’m so very proud of him.
