It’s been 11 years since I had a dad on Father’s Day, but my dad and grandpa (at least the one I knew) are always in my thoughts.

For all the dads out there, thank you for all you do!

  1. I am now 32 years older than my dad when he died. I’ve had to play it by ear since then, but my memories of him remain a powerful guide, even if I don’t have the example of his growing old. Happy Father’s Day, Dad.
