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.
