    What always strikes me about your writing is how you say things that I feel and don’t even recognize. And yet when I read them, they ring 100% true.

    Thank you again for telling your stories.

    Regards, Lee

    How this made me wipe tears from my eyes, I can’t explain. But, it did. Happy Father’s Day, Brad.

    I have yet to remove the announcement for my Dad’s funeral from the sun visor in my car, it’s been three years since he passed. It stays there and I don’t know when or if I ever plan on removing it. Thanks for sharing some of the memories and your feelings on this day.

    man, that was really nice. Exceptionally nice. My Dad is dying- this is his last Father’s Day- and I’ll never see him laugh again. It’s funny, the card I gave him today said I wished him whatever would make him smile. I hope you give your kids lots of smiles today. Happy Father’s Day.

    Quality writing from a quality human being. I too wiped tears from my eyes, partially from your story and partially because my father is 4 years into his diagnosis of multiple myloma. It’s sobering to know you have time left and still want to make it as wonderful as possible. I want to make the time amazing not only for myself, but for my kids too because my dad is the greatest man I’ve ever met. I want them to know the man who raised their father so if I ever do anything great for them, they know where the proper credit belongs. Thanks again Brad and have a very happy Fathers Day. Your kids are truly blessed to have the father they have, friend.
