Thank you for not only being our Dad, but for being our Best friend, a Teacher, a Counselor, when times were tough, the greatest Role model, our personal Banker and Investor, our biggest Idol, and a true Confidant. That’s what a real Dad is. You exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The life lessons you taught us will never be forgotten and we can only hope that our children admire us as we admired you! Its true what they say…” that life is measured not by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away.” When we look back at our lives, you took our breath away on so many occasions. May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
