One of their fondest memories of their dad was that he would always make them breakfast every morning before they went to school. Sometimes the girls would have slumber parties on Saturday nights, and on Sunday mornings, he would bring donuts to Julie's best friend Paula's house. He also would take them driving in his white 1976 Ford Maverick, but before leaving, he would always say, "Put your seat belt on".
