This is my special dad!

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

Dad, you were a special man!

You were always there to lend a hand.

You treated us with kindness.

You were always fair.

You showed us how much you cared.

You wore a happy smile upon your handsome face.

And taught us how to appreciate God’s grace.

You made our lives so full and rich.

Teaching us to be good was your main pitch.

You would tease and joke.

While always a cigarette at your lips you would smoke.

You were talented with your hands.

Fixing and creating things on command.

You thought of others before yourself.

Your own troubles you put away on a shelf.

You left this world for a better place.

Leaving here on Earth a large empty space.

You gave us your love in every way.

I love you more than I can say!

I miss you more and more each day!

Happy Father’s Day with Love, Dad!

Your loving daughter,

Jan (my nickname by Dad)

I wish all the fathers out there a wonderful Father’s Day!

Thank you for stopping by!

With love and blessings!

-Janice-

      Thank you, Gigi! Yes, I certainly did. He was a wonderful dad. Hugs!

      • My Dad dies way too early for really appreciating him. Since we out of Germany, I learnt so much and writing my books, I would have my Dad much more loved and appreciated, as I have done while still living in Germany. I regret that very much. but I know, he is in heaven and one day, in the far future, I will see him again and can tell him all the things I which to tell him now. with writing my books, I have learnt so much. It’s just amazing. and now I really miss him. But too late now.
