Thanks, Dad, for years of patience with your son

To the best dad…

I know you’re going on 80 years old and you and Mom have always been there, through thick and thin, good situations and bad situations – but for the most part in the last 28 years of my life, bad situations.

My father always tells me things will always work out, just have patience. He’s no doctor, but he has all the patience in the world with a son like he has. I know I always try to do for everybody else instead of trying to fix my own problems.

Dad, thank you for everything you’ve done for me and Sarah; we love you so much. Have a great birthday and lots more.
