Father's Day - Tribute to My Dad

Dad putting

Dads who are there for us deserve a lot of praise on Father’s Day or any day. Those who help by reading a story and putting their children to bed or who play with their kids, have conversations, help them when they are sick, watch a movie (whether scoring high on Rotten Tomatoes or not), discuss schoolwork, and devote time to choosing a college, and giving other support as they become adults, and beyond that…those are the dads I’m talking about. That is how my dad has always been.

Written by Anita R. Holtz, Marketing Proofreader
