I remember like it was yesterday, when I declared to mom I was going to marry daddy when I grew up. She kept trying to explain to me why that was impossible. She didn't even try to explain based on that you were dad, but that you were already married, to her. My however young self just didn't get it because I remember declaring that I didn't care because you were the man for me and dangit we were going to be married. I did eventually figure out why this couldn't be.

We've had our ups and downs through the years but at the end of it all you're still dad, my first love. So Happy 81st Birthday, and may you be able to celebrate so many more.

Your Daughter


  1. Happy Birthday to your dad. Mat God Bless hom with many many more!!

  2. That's a beautiful tribute, Mavis. I lost my dad in 1997, and I still miss him and think of him everyday. :)

  3. Mavis,

    That story is too precious! I thoroughly enjoyed it. What a perfect birthday gift! Your father must be proud!
