FATHERS ~


Poppy Vic as his three grands called him.  My husband of 38 years.  
Heaven sent. Father of two.  Always missed, always loved.


Dad!  Heaven sent.  Fifty plus years of marriage, father of two, granddad and great grandfather.  
And I always thought him to be both grand and great ~ love you, Dad!


My son.  From baby to boy to young man and father of two.
And I'm being truthful when I say he is a super Dad.  Love you lots!
  

My kid brother.  Of course, all grown up!  
Couldn't do without him in my life.  Father, grandfather, and Godfather for my son. Blessed you're "mine". 

Grandpa, father-in-law, was I ever the lucky woman to have this wonderful man in my life.  His
two grandkids adored him.  Heaven sent.  We never stopped missing him.

Godfather for my daughter.  Lifelong dear friend.  Part of our family.  Father of four girls.
Heaven sent.  Loved and missed.


Father.  Father to so many.  He performed our marriage, he baptized each of our children 
and many years later performed the wedding ceremony for our daughter.
His guidance helped us throughout our lives.  
Heaven sent.  May he rest in peace.

__________

Many take on the role of "fathers" in our lives,
perhaps a teacher, a neighbor, an uncle,
some for a moment in time, some for a lifetime.
Look into your heart and you will find many fathers are there.
Celebrate and thank them, each and every day
for all they have given to you.
