“My wife was his biggest cheerleader,” John said.
And John wouldn’t have loved his life.
“It was really Jonathan’s idea to do something positive in my life and not get into the shell,” John said.
Jonathan advised his father to pursue his dream and return to the classroom.
“Everything was different after 35 years, from technology to my attitude,” John said.
“I know he’s working really hard,” Jonathan said. “I see him working at home late into the night writing an essay.”
Not only did they find support for each other, but they also found support at the university.
“It made me feel cool just to know he was here,” Jonathan said.
“It helped me to be on campus, and it’s great with all these young students and professors,” John said.
They said their love for quotas only made them the best students.
“When we do the stage, it’s three of us,” John said.
