He uses words like "iota" and "m.o." [and then proceeds to explain that m.o. is actually "modus operandi", approximately translated into "method of operation"]. He calls on a daily a basis just to say hello. He leaves funny voicemail messages with silly questions that really have no answer.... like "If a word was misspelled in the dictionary...how would we know?" He has always been there for me and always will be. He is my friend and my father. And, although I can't be with him this Father's Day, he knows that I love him and that my heart and my thoughts are with him today as they are every day.
this photo seriously makes me smile! it's such a great shot of my dad and it was taken at my wedding last september! thanks eric for this photo!
And to celebrate all of the wonderful Father's out there- enjoy this day as we recognize you for all of your love, support, hard work, and devotion that you give each and every day! Some of my favorite "dad shots" from 2010:
