From the moment I came into this world, I have been blessed
by the love of this man.
No words spoken or written will ever be sufficient to describe the love,
appreciation, and respect I have for him.
His heart of service and dedication to excellence have been demonstrated his
whole life. From the time he was a young paratrooper...
and medic in the U.S. Army...
those noteworthy traits have been readily apparent.
But his role as a husband and father is where those traits have
shone the brightest.
Even as a soldier thousands of miles from home—with a young wife and
a newborn—he met his responsibilities head-on with love,
devotion, and self-sacrifice.
I have never known a more honest, hard-working,
man of integrity than this man.
Time and again, his actions have attested to the fact that there is no sacrifice
too great for those he loves—
his country, his friends, his family.
And his family has always had the assurance that they are his
number one priority.
I will always be eternally grateful—and proud—that I have been blessed
to call this wonderful man, Dad!
Happy Father's Day, Dad. I love you! You are, and will always be, a hero to me!
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life
for his friends."
