Happy Fathers Day, Dad!
Thank you for being the greatest Dad there is. I'm so lucky to have had a wonderful role model and parent. You always believed in Christine and I and encouraged us to follow our dreams. I'm so lucky that you've always been so involved in our lives, I'm forever grateful for everything you've taught us and what I've learned from watching you.
I hope that I make you proud, and that I have grown up to be the person you'd hoped your daughter would become. I am so glad we're so close are are able to do things together like hiking, climbing and visiting on the deck at Sunnyside. I always love our conversations, there is always so much to learn. And you give the best advice!
I hope you have a wonderful day, I'm sorry I'm not home to celebrate with you. But I look forward to seeing you next weekend, we'll just celebrate a week late!
I love you very much! Happy Fathers Day!
To celebrate, I thought I'd share some of my favorite memories....
When you read to us growing up.
As a little girl, meeting you at the front door (or in the garage) when you'd get home from work.
