Dad, There were many times that I have said thank you, for a lot of things. But this time it’s different. I want the whole world to know how great of a father I have. I want to thank you for all your support, your love, your courage, your dedication, your friendship, your wisdom and your advice Most men wait for a dark day to come before they can speak to their fathers and say thank you, I refuse to wait. I want you to know that you are my best friend, my mentor, my confidante, my pride and my idol. Without you I wouldn’t be half the man that I am today, and for that and many things I am eternally grateful. I miss you and I will see you soon. Love you papa.
