For my dad.
Today is your birthday and even though we live on opposite sides of the country I am grateful for how close we really are. I want to thank you for everything you have done for me. I appreciate it all more than you know. Thank you for everything you have taught me. Even though there were times when you thought I wasn’t listening, I was. Thank you for being tough on me when I needed it. You made me a better person. Finally, thank you for all the years you have watched over your granddaughter. She has turned out to be an amazing young woman and you helped shape her.
Once again, here are some familiar photos. They make me smile. You are my hero Dad. I love you with all my heart. Happy Birthday.
