To Dad & Bob

Dad - You are an honorable man and easy to respect. You don't flaunt challenges you've had but you have had them and have faced them head-on and I do believe, conquered most, if not all of them. It's inspiring.

The way you have fathered me, Laura and Julie has greatly influenced the women we are today. It influences how I parent Sam and how I relate to Bob. Thank you for taking your job so seriously, to provide for our family, love Mom and protect us. You are still doing a most excellent job.

Bob - You are a wonderful father. I always knew you would be. It's a big part of why I married you. It's such a neat thing to watch a man be a dad, without being the subject of the fathering (no offense, Dad). Your love for Sam and Baby #2 is contagious, encouraging, and fun to watch. It brings me so much joy to see how much you enjoy being a dad. It only deepens my love for you...adds another facet to it, if you will.

Your devotion to providing for and protecting us is more than I/we deserve. I may not ever be able to put into words how much I appreciate all that you do for us.

I'm so pleased and humbled that God is allowing our family to grow. And I'm blessed to have you as a partner in raising these two boys. I truly look forward to seeing how you father our sons in each stage of their lives.

I love you both. Happy Father's Day!

What a super, great, incredible way to start my day.

It is easy being a dad when you have daughters.

I love you,
