Happy Father's Day to Two Great Men

Stacey, You are a wonderful father to our children. You have loved each one and have made all of our lives so fun and meaningful.
You took us all to the beach and many fun picnics.

Bike rides were always a part of your fun time enjoying our children. Many happy memories were made with you.

You are a great example of a godly man to our kids. Thank you for living your life for Jesus in front of them.
Thank you for working so hard to provide for us all.
Thank you for dressing up with the kids and being a fun dad.
Thank you for taking the kids out on fun adventures.....
That they will never forget. They love being with you.

Thank you for maintaining the cars to keep us all safe.
You've instilled good study habits and encouraged the kids to save for college.
Thank you for taking the kids to the university regularly to prepare them and get them used to college at an early age. I love you Stacey. You are a wonderful father! Happy Father's Day.

Dad, You've been a wonderful father to me! Thank you for doing fun things with us kids. I used to love riding on the bike with you on "Greenie." I'm on the handle bars.
Thanks Dad for taking us to fun places like the beach and Crater Lake. I'm in between my sister Kelli and Sharon.
Thank you for taking us to church every Sunday and teaching us to love the Lord. You lived your life as a godly example in front of us. I felt so "cool" in those red tights and black shoes.
Thank you for providing for us all those years. You worked so hard and only missed one day of work that I know of.
You provided a beautiful home and clothes for us. We were not rich, but we were always dressed nice, and we were rich in love and security. Sharon is the first little adorable blondie, I'm holding her hand and my baby brother's hand, Wade. Kelli is the cutie at the top of the photo.
You always took us out for pizza in our cool car after church Sunday night. I don't know how we all fit into that car. I'm the "Geek" with glasses on the end. Thank you for paying for my glasses and contacts, Daddy, and for all those fillings. I think every tooth in my mouth has a filling in it.
Thank you Dad, for the many times you have come out to help us on the farm.

I just had to add the song "You Are My Sunshine," because I have a happy memory of you playing your guitar and singing that song to us kids. I love you Dad. Happy Father's Day. Love, Kathi

Tell Stacy Happy Father's Day for me! He has been a great father to your kids. Stacy has always worked so hard for your family and always tries to make things fun! You are truly blessed. I love the old pictures of us when we were children. I hope you don't mind, but I am going to "snag" some of them just so I have them!

I love you! Have a great day today!

Love, Sharon

Your tribute to your two "men" is so sweet. Your husband is a wonderful man and looks like he enjoys life! He is a bit scary as Cousin It or whatever he is dressed up as! lol

I loved the pictures from the past as well. I clicked on them to get a better look. :) My favorite picture is when you all are posed in front of the car. You don't look too geeky with the glasses. Love the miniskirts! (Those were the days!) :)



Oh, I revealed my surprise this morning! :)

Hi Kathi... I sure am enjoying reading your blog! This tribute to your Husband and your Father is just so precious. I can tell how deep your love for both of them is!

I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to visit my lil blog. The comments you left were such a blessing to me. What you said about God and Friends and satan were all so true. I liked how you told me about quoting Scripture outloud... I am going to do just that.

I did not know you and Sharon were sister's... She has been so kind to me, and I have really enjoyed her blog, as well. Please know that my door is always open, Kathi, and I enjoy meeting new friends! Stop by anytime... and, again, my thanks!
God Bless...
