They say you marry a man with similar qualities of your father. I think I came pretty damn close, but of course there is no man on earth who can compete with your dad. Today I celebrate you. Blessed is not an accurate term to describe how fortunate I am to have you as my father. You are seriously the funniest person I know. You are caring, compassionate, and gentle. You are a wonderful partner to mom and together you set a strong example of love and marriage. You are the apple in Tommy’s eye and you adore him and that melts my heart. You are smart and creative. You can fix literally anything. You remind me to take it one day at a time. You are everything to me, dad. I love you and I’m so happy to celebrate another year with you. Happy Birthday Pop!
