My pop. Happy dads day. I look at this picture a lot... it sits atop the mantle at our farm... one of gus’ favorite photos ever. Mine too. I often wonder how at 20 years of age you were able to do all you did. The sacrifices you made... Thank you for being my dad... for setting an example in so many ways, for allowing me, reluctantly at times to follow my path. It’s been a journey, one that I couldn’t of done without you. I’ve spent 52 years with you as my hero, wanting to make you proud. And now as a dad myself... I hope that my boy looks at me the same way I look at you. Dads and sons. No relationship is trickier or more important in a boys life. We win. Thanks pop. Thank you for pushing me while standing next to me. I love you.
