As I sat around yesterday and enjoyed the laughter of our children, I realized that these children are who they are because of the father that you have been to them. You have a firm hand that comes with a soft heart. You know when to discipline, but you also know when to love. You have a witty sense of humor that comes with many words of affirmation. You have shown our boys what it is to be a man that isn't afraid to love. You have shown our daughter what a husband and father should be. That doesn't mean you are always right, but you surely know how to say "I'm sorry." What is the best gift that a dad can give to his children? To love their mother unconditionally, and you have done just that since the moment we became one standing in my parent's backyard saying our wedding vows. How could I ever ask for anything more?
