He let you “drive” the car into the garage while sitting on his lap. He tied and retied your fishing flies each time you reeled in moss.

To all the fathers and father figures in our lives, thank you for attending our dance recitals, soccer games, track tournaments, spelling bees, and music performances. We recognize and appreciate your endless encouragement, both spoken and unspoken.
