My first glimpse of Christ's love was from you. 

You taught me how to love others. 

You taught me how to ride a bike, throw a softball, and drive a car. 

You taught me God's word. 

You lived it every single day in front of me. 

You taught me what it means to work hard. 

You taught me how a man should treat his wife. 

You taught me the importance of serving others. 

You taught me to watch my tongue, and to apologize when I'm wrong. 

You taught me that nothing on this earth matters apart from Christ. 

You baptized me. 

You loved Terry like you love us. 
You saw me through the worst days of my life. 

You prayed fervently for my sweet miracle baby when I never thought she would happen.

You are my hero, and I can't believe God thought enough of me to choose you to be my dad. 

It's no wonder your heart needs a little re-vamping. You've used it to the fullest the last 56 years.

Happy Birthday to the best Dad. 

I love you with all my heart.
