Happy Father's Day

I want to tell my Dad Happy Father's day and share how much I love him. I know I have the best Dad out there. I can't think of a kinder, more selfless, giving man than him. There are so many reasons I love my Dad, but here are a few:

Thanks Dad, for always coming home to make us breakfast in the morning, and watch for the bus. I will always remember sitting at the bar in the morning and your watchful eye looking out the door.

Thanks for being the coolest Dad in school. Can you say baby calf for show and tell? Thanks now for passing this fun memory and moment down to my son.

Thanks for always being there when I needed you. It was always reassuring to know I could get ahold of you and you would come and get me if I needed to go home from school or just plain needed someone.

Thanks for the cans of Mountain Dew and change from your truck ashtray. :)

Thanks for enduring many singing and piano recitals for me even when it wasn't "your thing." It meant a lot for me to see you sitting in the audience.

Thanks for never making money a issue. I never knew growing up if we did or didn't have money. I always felt like if I asked for something, I would be given it. I never went without and always had a few of (Dad's dollars) in my pocket just in case.

Thanks for loving and supporting me when I wasn't easy to love.

Thanks for your jokes and happy personality. You always make me laugh and you are always fun to be around.

Thanks for being the best Grandpa: tractor rides, feeding and choosing baby calves, fourwheeler rides, trips into town, babysitter extraordinaire, and more and more and more. My children love you and love to be on the farm with you.

Thank you for your help on all of our house projects. We can never repay you or thank you enough.

Thank you for your service to your community and neighbors. I am always proud to say you are my Dad because I know all the good things you do for people.

Thanks for always workings so hard from morning to night and still making time for your family. My favorite times are when we are together.

Your the best. I am proud of you. I am so lucky and privileged to call you Dad. I love you!
