Father's Day

My dad was a wonderful man and I miss him. He was so much fun - he would take us to the park to feed the ducks, down to the sea side to swim in the ocean he loved to be around the "kids". He would sometimes talk in rhymes and we had to answer him in rhymes, we would laugh so hard. He adored my mother and always said she had the prettiest eyes. He was a gem. Happy Father's Day, daddy :)
