I inadvertently planned a trip to Seattle over Father’s Day weekend, so I’m celebrating over
the course of a week or so this year.
I got one of the good ones. My dad is a strong, gentle, loving, hardworking, wise, subtly funny, and intelligent man. I am like him in so many ways, and I’ve become the person I am today to a large extent through his influence. I dream of someday finding and marrying a man half as wonderful as my father.
I love you, Daddy.
