This is the weekend that we normally get to buy dad a tie or some power tools or whatever....
This is the first year that I will not be able to do any of that with my dad...he passed away in late September.
Realize that DAD may or may not be biological, but is the man that gave you the model to follow for better or worse as you grew up. This is a salute to dads around the world. Tell what major characteristic you got from or learned from the man you call(ed) "DAD".


My dad was my blood father. I learned that men are responsible and protective of those they love. I learned that men have feelings and its ok to express them. Men do the right thing, because it is the right thing, not because of some recognition or reward for doing it.... and many other things... Thanks Dad! Miss you and love you.icon_cool.gif
