Dear Dad,

Happy Birthday! I love you and am so thankful you're my Dad, and my children's Grandpa.

Here are some of the things I love about you the most.

You tucked me in every night as a little girl and said my prayers with me - even though you fell asleep most nights.

You told the best made up alligator stories.

You made the best biscuits and gravy and still do!

You took us sledding for hours almost every Saturday during our long ND winters.

You beat cancer!

You play so well with my kids and they adore you for it.

Your fading memory drives me crazy and makes me laugh all at the same time.

You instilled my love of tacos in me!

You made me realize it's ok for men to cry.

I'm always on the lookout for a good deal because of you.

You made the best cheese parties ever!

I loved playing"trap" with you.

You were always patient with me while teaching me my algebra.

You worry about me still.

I love you Dad. I never want to leave anything unsaid, so remember that no matter the past, we have only the future to look forward to.
