“That’s my father.” … Seemingly an innocent and offhand remark made by the youngest of his three children, those three little words meant much more to our dad. I know it made him feel proud and happy to be that father, that figure of authority and loving protector of his family.
It was a responsibility he took seriously, a role that only he could execute with his unique brand of friendship, understanding and humour…”

I’m thinking of relatives and friends who lost their fathers very recently.
My heart goes out to them today.
Wishing all the wonderful dads
a Happy Father’s Day
