To the one who taught me how to love,
The one who showed me with kisses and hugs.
The one who said the truth is not to hide,
The one who taught me the rules are made by which to abide.

To the one who kissed my tears when I was hurt,
Who along with Mom watched me roll in the dirt.
The one who always had a shoulder, on which I could cry,
The one who always had an answer when I asked why.

You are my movie partner, joke partner, food tester and more,
My shelter, provider, and protector for sure.
God couldn’t have made a better man, tried if he had,
Than the one I call my hero, the man I call my Dad.

Beautiful tribute to a deserving parent. I know the Bible tells us to honor our parents and I always tried, but it must be really great to have parents who are loving and kind. I just never got that lucky.

A very wonderful tribute for Jack. You children are worth more to him than priceless jewels. No price can be placed on you. Nothing limits your Dads love for you. Bill Murray
