I loved Squid like a second dad. I remember hiding his chew to try and get him to stop. But one of my fondest memories of him was coming home from youth group on Wednesday nights, running out to the garage, sitting on his lap as a little girl and playing his poker hand. He always called me “his lucky charm”. RIP.
