Dear Tom,

I would like to nominate my husband Keaston hooks. He is my friend and all out support system. We have been together since 2009.

He took me and my three children into his heart and life with ease. We now have a total of 5 children. During my last pregnancy, my mom had a stroke. Keaston jumped right into gear caring for her and moving her into our home as if it where his own mother.

In conjunction with my mother’s illness, Keaston lost his night job, which was our only source of income at the correctional facility where he was an officer.

Tom, he had to sell his bass guitar among other things to help with our hurdle. It was like seeing a piece of him die.  He never murmured any negative words or displayed any regret. We are in a better position now and my mom is walking on her own and back at her home because of all the encouragement and help he gave her.

We would like for him to get a new bass guitar to show some of our gratitude.  I know we could never repay him for his humbleness and selflessness. Thank you so much for reading our nomination. Keaston is definitely a true example of what a real father and real man should be!
