Today I want to remember this man, Patrick Gabriel Covone, my dad. He was a pioneer, an adventurer, and one who was not afraid of the unknown. He would trek off into the jungles of the Huasteca mountain regions with Bibles, clothes, and other supplies for lay ministers, and some of the poor church members. He was selfless and lovingly tough. He may not of been perfect, but he was perfect for me. He is my earthly hero. I wish I had learned sooner the lessons he was trying to teach me long ago. Thank you dad! See you in heaven!
