In typical fashion, I haven’t forgotten Father’s Day I just haven’t mentioned it.  But it’s still Father’s Day for a little while longer and while my own Dad may not be with me anymore I wanted to wish a Happy Father’s Day to his memory and to all the other good dads out there.

My Dad was a huge influence in my life.  Having taken care of me almost completely since I was around 9.  I may have gone to visit my Mom every weekend or so and lived with her for a year after the divorce, but it was my Dad who raised me, shaped me into the responsible human being I am today.  It’s thanks to him that even after having lost so much and lived the way that I did that I turned out so well-balanced.

So to him wherever he wants to be right now, I love you, Dad.

Happy Father’s Day.
