Surrounded By Kindness

PLEASE READ:
The sweetest video of @tonyhawk helping his daughter drop in on a baby size pipe.
🔥
Tony Hawk grew up two houses north of our house in San Bernardino CA. From our kitchen window, we could watch a young Tony fly in the air. Best way to do dishes ever.
🔥
As sweet and supportive as he is with his daughter, his dad Bob Koston was always kind to my brother Dave.
🔥
I’m sure his dad built Tony his first half-pipes for training in their driveway because before Tony was born, his dad helped modify our house by helping create and install a gorgeous wrought iron spiral staircase in the back of our house near Dave’s room so my parents could hear him if he called for their help in the middle of the night. He also helped install a back door that made it 100% easier for Dave to come in and out of the house. Whenever there was an interesting project going on at our house Bob Koston was the brains behind the solution.
🔥
Tony’s dad was a proud salty vet who was not only a very hard working commercial painting contractor but a man who could build or repair just about anything and always offered to help our family solve problems, especially when Dave first came home from the hospital and our house needed modifications.
🔥
Seeing this sweet video of Tony with his daughter, seeing what a lovely dad he is, reminds me of his dad Bob and the kindness he always showed our family and I’m so grateful. Bob was among the many people who always encouraged Dave to write his story. If Bob is still alive @tonyhawk please thank him for me and tell him the book Viking Funeral is FINALLY coming.
