"God himself chose to be called, simply, Father."I believe this quote is attributed to Boyd K. Packer.
I just want to say thanks to the dads in my life.
Grandpa Lish (now passed) for his quiet strength, his help in time of crisis, and the shiny quarters whenever we said goodbye.
Grandpa Willford (now passed) for having the most fun place to play with my cousins, giving me farm experience, teaching me about rough characters who have a heart of gold, and for showing me how to sit on a one legged milking stool.
Dad for always caring and loving me, no matter what.
Grandpa Tom (father-in-law now passed) for giving me the opportunity to see and do some things that I never would have been able to do.
Jeff for being my best friend and the person I most like to spend time with. For teaching our boys good values and work ethic. For being a strong leader of our family.
My son Ian, first for just being you, second, for marrying Dani (a wise decision) and third, for being a good dad to Sunny. You're great.
My son Chris for making me laugh, for marrying Ann (a match made in heaven) and for being a good dad to Alicia. I salute you Sergeant!
And to my son Andre who I know will be a good dad someday because he's an awesome teenager. Yes, I said it, he's awesome and a teenager.
I love you all.
Happy Father's Day!
