Happy Father's Day

For all of you fathers out there ..
Have a wonderful day.. you deserve it!

I hope you spend it surrounded by the people who love and appreciate you the most.
Take some time off and relax!
(The lawn and home repairs can wait till tomorrow!)

My dad, Leonard Theodore, passed away in 1997 at the age of 77 years.
He was a terrific dad, a loving grandfather and a wonderful person.
I miss him so very very much.
I know he would be so proud to see what his grandchildren have accomplished so far.
He served in World War 2 in the Pacific, and then came home and raised a family.
He did wonderful things in his community - like being a Boy Scout Master - and working to help raise money for our synagogue. He was always there to help a neighbor in need. He was hard working guy. He was honest and loving and had a great sense of humor. He helped raise 3 children and he was always there when they got themselves into some sort of jam.
He was an avid bowler too - and bowled 2 perfect games in his bowling career.
One 300 game happened shortly before he died.
He was an avid Yankees fan.
Dad was an inspiration to me and I will always hold him dear in my heart.
Happy Father's Day dad, wherever you are in the universe!

and here are a few father's day quotes:

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.” -David O. McKay

"He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it." ~Clarence Budington Kelland

A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.” -Unknown
