Father’s Day is the day for sending cards and gifts to dads, grandpas and all the important men “just like dad” in our world.


This is a time to say thanks for all the support and love they give to the family through the year. The words to tell dad how special he is can be hard to find for some of us.

My granddad and father died many years ago and I miss them to this day…Sometimes we cannot know simple truths until we are adults, and memories of cherished moments rise like the steam from the cup of the first morning coffee. One of the hardest things through my life was watching the aging of my family. I realized much too late after the deaths of my grandparents and parents the great loss of contact with the precious heritage I only now fully appreciate. I cling to the memories of the time spent with each of them.
