A Tribute to Papa

my dad at 4 yrs old (sorry it was just too cute not to include)

With Father's Day right around the corner, I wanted to say Happy Father's Day to my papa and thank you for everything! You have taught me a lot in life, and I have to say you are the most honest and hard working person I have ever met. You are also the biggest busy body I know (I know I inherited that one from you) and also showed me what it really means to love someone (your love for mom is like nothing I have ever seen - we all thought you were so cheesy growing up but now we know how lucky we were to know that you loved her "til the 12th of Never").

I have so much more to learn from you, and about you (why didn't I know until a few weeks ago that you almost died when you were 4 because you got hit by a motorcyclist and had your head split completely open?). I'm so very looking forward to the visits to come. I love you papa and I'm sending big hugs since I can't be there in person this weekend.

Dad and his love for ice cream go back a long way :)

Oh Dad, I think I have about a million pictures of you dipping mom and smooching her; it was only natural that I slip one of these in here.
