Happy Father's Day
June 15, 2008
To my dad...thank you for all the support and encouragement you give me. I know you believe in me and that means everything.
And to Fatty...Did I ever tell you this part of our story? When we were at the Dollar that September night almost 15 years ago, you said your goal in life was to be the best father and husband you possibly could. That was all it took. You had me there. And you are the best. I am so lucky I get to spend my life with you and that our daughters have you for a father and role model. We are blessed to have you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Happy Father's Day to all the great dads out there!
What a sweet post. I hope you all have a wonderful father's day today!
