You've been gone 31 years now and you are still missed by us. I hope I've made you proud.
I know that it seemed that everything you taught me went in one ear and out the other but it didn't. Your lessons to me ring as true now as they ever did and it is a constant reminder of how wise you were. You not only taught but you walked those lessons as well. Your examples of faith, honesty, fairness, hard work, and most of all the Golden Rule, have stuck with me through 31 years of school, the military, marriage, fatherhood, and my career. Not a day goes by that you don't cross my mind and whenever I hear people complain about their dads, I think what I would give to see you for five minutes. Your grandkids would have loved to have met you and you would love them, I know. You would be so proud. Happy Father's Day, Dad. May you be residing in God's arms today and may you never forget how much I love and miss you.
