Happy Father's Day, Dad!

I can't believe that my Dad's been gone for so long now. Dead for over a generation. Yet I can feel him in my soul daily and his impact on me was huge. But of all the things he left me, the most important, I'm convinced, is this. That everything you are trickles down from your principles and if you're principled you are everything that is good and right and loving. He loved my mother and my sister and I more than life itself, and I felt it for every day he was alive. Lucky I was. Luckier than most. Wherever you are, Dad, I'm sending you my hugs and kisses on this day, and thanking you for the man that you made me into.

What a beautiful tribute! I'm sure your father would be very proud of you.
