On this Father's day I grieve for the father I lost to cancer and for those two children who's very courageous father not only protected them but protected the highways so that many other father's could get home safely to their children. I also honor on those of you who take the place of a lost father. I honor those father's who find it necessary to keep and protect a family and stay married for long periods of time and take care of the mother of your children. You are truly men of valor.
Dad, I truly miss you everyday. In the 12 years you gave me as a father, you were exceptional and taught me life's lessons in a short period I was under your wing. Everything you did for me served as an example to what I wanted to be like as a parent and values I instill in my little one's everyday.
Thing One, you have big shoes to fill.
