a special birthday

Today is my dad’s birthday! Yippee! For those of you that know him, you know what a special man he is and how lucky I am to be able to tell people I’m related to him and maybe have a few of his great qualities. He loves his family more than any of us can fathom, and each of us is better for having him in our daily lives.
