HAPPY FATHERS' DAY

I have 3 very special Father's in my life, my father, the father of my children, and the father of my Grandson. 

Daddy, I'm sure I didn't show you the appreciation you deserved while I was growing up but I'm glad you never gave up on me.  Thank you.  I love you.

Steve, Dickidoo... I tease you a lot... maybe even too much at times, but never doubt that I am so proud of who and what you are.  You have provided a wonderful life for our children, full of important lessons and wonderous experiences.  I have watched you grow from an inexperienced first time father into a mentor, role model and now a grandfather with such style and grace.  I love you, always.

Gabe, my son, you have made such huge decisions in the past few years and have come through with flying colors.  One of the biggest was your decision to be a part of your son's life.  You have grown in to a fine young man, soldier and father.  I am so proud of you!

Each of these men have played a very special role in my life, and so to them, and to all of the father's out there, I wish a very Happy Fathers' Day!

Check out a special slide show for Gabe from all of his family and friends.

I watched the video blog-what wonderful memories that should bring to Gabe whenever he needs a lift.  You are a great mother and I believe with the song and the work you put into that video, Gabe does indeed make you proud (and many of us who know how hard he is working for US)

Many of us out here might feel that way about fathers, husbands and/or sons, but we don't SAY it.  You do and I'm so glad that you do.  Today is a good day to put it into words, although any old day would do.

Dammit it Jody:

There you went and done it!  You made your Dad cry on Father's Day.........are you Happy Now?
Thanks for the slide show.  I dragged Mom out of the kitchen and had her watch it too.
Here's a Bud to you my sweet daughter.  ( I know it isn't Corona) but "This Bud's for you"

Having Met Dickidoo, I can heartily endorse anything you say. He is a darling man, a big ole teddy bear.

Oh, Jodi, the video is so beautiful. I started crying about half way through. He is such a handsome young man, and his character shines through in his lovely eyes.
