For Milton & George

Chuck and I were both fortunate to have great Dads. My Dad passed away an impossibly long twenty-one years ago. Chuck’s Dad passed only a few months ago, back in February. Today we are missing them both. We miss the best of them; when they were each in their prime and in their full powers. And we miss being able to share something funny or a memory or a bit of good news with them.

The saying goes that any guy can be a father, but it takes a special man to be a dad. So here’s to all the dads, grandfathers and great-grandfathers. And here’s to all the godfathers, big brothers, uncles and good men who serve as father figures. Happy Father’s Day to you all.

Thanks for the post Lee. Becuase of Jake, I always spare a thought for those who don't have dads in their lives. Hope the day went OK for you and Chuck.
