For Dad


This is for the men, 
the fathers, the rocks 
on which the family is built, 
on which we are built.
This is for the ones who know 
the difference 
between being a father 
and a being a dad, 
because they care. 
This is for the dads 
who are there, 
even when it is difficult, 
not only offering
shelter from the storm,
but becoming the shelter...
because 
fathers are forever, 
and there is no one 
like Dad.

Happy Father's Day to our special Dad, Bill, who is all of this, and so much more. He saved us, spoils us, makes us a priority, and loves us, no matter what! 
Love Always, Stella & Kenzie, Maggie P., Grizelda, Chloe Jo, and George

*And, this is for our Dads, in memory, because they will always be a part of us. With love.
