It is my daddy's 73rd birthday today. Happy birthday daddy! I hope it was a wonderful one. I adore my daddy. He has always been an involved, helpful, lending a hand and ear, father. Right from the time we were kids he was there playing with us kids, taking us camping, playing baseball, or taking us fishing. I must admit that I have been very lucky to have a dad that has been so involved in our lives. Other children have not been so fortunate. Even my own kids, have not been as blessed to have a dad like mine. But my children have been blessed to have a grandfather who has been just as involved in there lives as he has been in mine. Thanks Dad for stepping up to the plate and being an example to me and my children, and showing what a father is really supposed to be like. I am blessed, my children are blessed and your great granddaughter Abby is so blessed to have you in our lives. Love you Daddy.

What a wonderful Tribute to your Dad! Sounds like a great father and grandfather.

I lost my father to cancer many years ago, and I still miss him so.

Congratulations to you Dad.

A truly great man when his children give such great tribute to him.

My father was not as involved as yours when I was growing up, simply because he has the other 7 children and a wife to be responsible for... but I love him the same.

You and your children are blessed by his presence, definitely.

Have a great week ahead, my friend.
