Choice has always been important to my dad.
He chose a Jaguar to drive because it's easy for a 91 year old to manage.
He chose to live in Sarasota because it's warm and beautiful and calm.
He chose to leave his home because we asked him to. HURRICANE == BAD.
He chose to turn around because he was tired and hangry.
He chose to go home and ride out the storm.
He chose to say "I love you" at the end of every call. He still does.
