Happy Father’s Day

As I sit here writing, just saying “happy father’s day” doesn’t seems like it is enough.  The words are easy, but the older we get, the more blessed we are to truly have a terrific relationship.

Blessed with so many great adventures, from back packing and camping, to learning how to body surf.  Always willing to go local and try something new and different.  Listening to Jeremy’s stories about Papa on their trip brings a flood of memories.

Great ones like staying overnight in a castle in Spain.  Scary when he was in the car accident in Jeddah. REALLY Scary when Dad had an asthma attack and collapsed in Bakersfield the day the station wagon broke down.  Hilarious when the “Dernetz clan” welcomed Rob into the clan.  Tense ones when Dad grilled Rob about his “intentions”.  Frustrating ones when we truly didn’t understand where each other was coming from.  Sorrow through the many painful moments our lives.  Joy in seeing you find love again.  Grief in the loss of two terrific brothers. Pride in watching me get married. Protective and always looking after for me even when I didn’t recognize it or was too stubborn to want it. Shear happiness seeing his grandsons for the first time.

Now watching you create new great memories with my husband & sons is a new blessing. Large family adventures to San Diego, Fishing trout ponds to bait boats, Trips to Kansas, the museums (so many museums), going to Yellow Stone & the Tetons.  Family Reunions and weddings in Baltimore.  Taking Sean to Philadelphia & Baltimore and now your trip with Jeremy’s trip to Spain.

Thank You!! Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for me, for Rob, and the boys. Blessed are all those wonderful memories. I can’t wait to make more together.

I love you Dad!
