father farther along

For the third, and final time, my Father is retiring tomorrow.

I've written before of the impact he has had on my life. I could write it all again. Because no matter how much I say, or how many times I say it, I can never express how important my Father is to me.

He is my parent, teacher, mentor and friend. To paraphrase a great man,

"If I had my choice of all the men in the world to be my dad, I would always choose him."

This is a new phase is his life. I can honestly say that I think he will have more adventures now than he ever has. I just hope my Mom is prepared.

Yes, you have a good Dad. Ray is also a good friend! I am glad that you have both a man who is a good friend...and he is your Father!
