I am so blessed to have a wonderful relationship with my dad and I am honored to share a few life lessons with you. It's been a great twenty seven years of fun,laughter and memories! Looking forward to twenty seven more years with my number one buddy!

So lucky to have a good relationship with your father and to take away these great lessons. Not everyone has that same privilege so count it as a blessing.
