Since my father died in '94, I really haven't paid much attention to Father's Day at all. Just seemed like another day for Home Depot to sell power tools. This year, though, I'm getting an emotional response from today. Could be because just about every thirtysomething male I know had a kid in the last year.

Next January is ten years since he collapsed and died from a aortic aneurysm. I miss him. I'm just happy we parted on good terms a few weeks before. Happy Father's Day, Dad.


  1. Dylan,

    God was looking out for all of us to give us the happy time we had before he took Dad from us. I know he knew how much we all loved him and we knew how much he loved us, too. For that I will be eternally grateful.

    I know that your Dad would be so proud of you. (Even though you did take that "History of Rock and Roll" class when you were at CU.) He is always with us in our hearts and memories. I miss him, too. More than I can say.....

    I love you.
