Happy Father’s Day!

To my own father

over the years, you gave us

so much love, laughter,


stability in

the troubled times; you kept us

safe when you could and


fought for us (or with

us) when you couldn’t (or we

wouldn’t see danger).


For us, you put your

needs last to make us happy –

and you succeeded.


Because I had such

a good man for my father,

I know how to be


happy with my life.

Thank you, Dad. You’ll never know

how much I love you.
