Well, I had an especially pleasant Father's Day today, and I hope the rest of you dads did too. My son presented me with a gift and a card this morning when he got home from work—the gift was a big frame containing a number of matted snapshots of himself and me and various loved ones from years past—and then he treated me to breakfast at the local diner. Later in the day I indulged in pizza delivery (not common for me) and watched the final round of the U.S. Open on TV. A particularly nice Father's Day, mostly because of the great start to the day. This is our favorite, from about '97.
A special thought goes out from us today for dads who have lost children, B.J. in South Bend and Ed K. and any others. Today's your day too—especially so. The love you feel as a parent never leaves.
