Hey dad, It’s your son. I just wanted to say something to you. You may have not be the perfect father to me in the eyes of other people, you may not be the best guy someone else has met, but to me dad, you’re a great father. In fact, you’re my perfect father. As tough as you can be at times, as angry as I am with you, I still love you dad. You’re a great guy. That’s a fact that to me, will never change. I love you pops. Thank you dad, and happy father’s day.
Lots of Love,
P.S. and dad, my answer to your question all those years ago, is no, I am not embarrassed to hug you in public, walk with you in public, etc. Because you’re a great father, and I am not embarrassed to have a great father.
