dear daddy, thank you for your steady, faithful care of your family, even when we should be independent already! thank you for raising us with dignity and grace. thank you for your generosity and tenderness toward us and our children. thank you for all your wisdom on pretty much any major life decision. thank you for all the repair jobs you have done to save all of us sooooo much money. thank you for teaching us to be frugal and faithful. we love you and are so thankful for all SIXTY years of your life and pray the Lord will continue to use your life to bring Him glory. happy birthday!
