From the first day you found out you were going to be a father...you became SUPER DAD! You took 30 days off of work to bond with the new addition to your family, all 4 times. You happily changed diapers, read books, made bottles/fed, sang songs, got up through the night, comforted and nurtured all four of your children. 17 years later...nothing has changed! You have raised 4 wonderful loving intelligent and beautiful children and still managed to accomplish a successful career including 8 years in the Marines and 19 years in the Dept. of Corrections. Your children love adore and admire you....they also know you as a real hero always protecting, providing, and saving the day! They are truly blessed to have you as a role model,father, dad ,and even a friend! You are the definition of a real father every single day.God has truly shined on you and your children......they are and will be forever grateful for you!
