Your dad sounds wonderful Emily!! As I was reading this, I started crying happy tears. I love my daddy so much. He is the best man I have ever known in my whole life. My daddy helped me so much when my twins were small and I will never forget that. Thank you for reminding me that Fathers are a major blessing in our lives. You are in my thoughts as you plan your next journey. I'm sorry that you have to leave. Take care, Jenny


I agree with you Em,your dad IS amazing, very cool indeed...

Dad's are the best - your dad is an amazing man
Lost mine 15 years ago in my early 30's and he still continues to inspire me


your Dad sounds wonderful - seems like you've all been blessed to have this time together. He sounds like a top guy, and he clearly has a wonderful daughter. I love my Dad more than I could possibly say - they're just the best aren't they ?

Heart clenching, tears in my eyes. You are so lucky to have him. What a great, great photo. This should be hung up in your home somewhere.
