This will be the first Fathers Day without having my dad to celebrate with us. Last June when we all gathered at the party room reserved at his nursing room to share funny cards and eating together. I did think to myself since he is getting in to the mid ninety's, I wondered if this would be the last one to remember.
He looked forward to funny cards and desert the most.

I know he is resting in peace now and we will carry on celebrating with our own family. We all gather and have a meal together and are grateful that we still have our core family with us.
It doesn't matter if you have dinner together, a picnic or whatever, just as long as you honor dad and let him know you care about all the things he has done for you and the family.
For those that have lost our dads which are both my husband and myself, we cherish those memories that are in the past and wish them good wished in our hearts.
Happy Dad's Day to all those dads, wannabe dads, grand dads and dads who are about to become a dad, we honor you on this special day.
|This day is in honor and memory of all fathers!|
