"Father! - to God himself we cannot give a holier name." ~William Wordsworth

They say it takes a real man to be a dad. In my short 24 years watching my father, I'd have to agree. It takes a real man to work and earn and save in order to give provide and bless his house. It takes a real man to watch his sons and daughters make their choices both for good or ill. It takes a real man to love and teach without raising his voice or losing his temper. My dad is a real man. He's not in it for himself; he's in it for the good of his family. He's never had to tell me how to be a good man. I've simply had to watch him. That is power.

To you, dad, I thank you for being my father and friend. A father and a son--what a combination. Its definitely a type and shadow of Those we worship. They work together and become even better.

"In life they were not divided, in death they are not separated."

Happy Father's Day! Love ya Davey!
