Happy Father's Day

To my Dad - I'm sad that I can no longer call you to wish you a Happy Father's Day. This is my first one without you.

To Pop, Ed's Dad - this is also our first year without you. wish you were still with us to share Father's Day. We miss you.

To Ed - you've been a great father to your children and wonderful step-father to mine. Not to mention a great Deydushka!!

To Joe, my kids' father - thank you for the two most incredible children a person could have

To Tony, my brother - your children are so lucky to have a wonderful, involved father like you. I'm very proud of you.

To Jeff, my son-in-law - thank you for being an awesome Papa to my grandchildren. I see them (and my daughter) thrive under your care and guidance.

To Marc, my step-son-in-law - thank you for being a great father to your boys and keeping them on the right track

To Joedy, my son - you've been a wonderful step-father and, hopefully you'll soon will be a Daddy to a child of your own. I know you will thrive in that role.

And to all the other fathers out there. Practically anyone can be a biological father, but it takes a special gift of time and love to be a Father, Daddy, Papa, Pop, or Dad. Thanks to all of you.

Well put! Anyone can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad. :)There's a lot more to it than biology, that's for certain.
