Written in honor of my father-in-law Robert L. French. He was a Naval Commander who served during the Vietnam war. My wife, Liz and I are both retired active duty Majors. We truly loved this kind, gentle, yet honorable man. "A dad, you get just one" became a French Family saying.
I loved this man with all my heart.

A Dad, You Get Just One!



A Dad, a father, you get just one.


Dad, a man of character


A dad, you get just one.


Our dad, an inspiration.


He was strong, loving, caring and forgiving.


A Dad, you get just one.


Our dad, very thoughtful.


He was always on time.


Our dad, a family man.


 He was so gentle and kind.


A dad, you get just one.


One for me and one for you.


Our dad, softly spoken, trustworthy and true .


A father, you get just one


 One for me and one for you.


Our Dad, full of laughs, full of fun.


Our dad, a special man.


A dad, you get just one!

I'm so fortunate to still have my "Daddy" and there will never be anyone to take his special place in my life. Thanks for sharing this.
