Happy Father's Day

I'd like to take this opportunity to say Happy's Father's Day to all the dads out there, including our very own Daniel Burch. I see what a great father Daniel is and hope that someday I will be nearly as good as he is.

Thankfully they get their looks from their mom.

On a personal note, I lost my father one year to the day. Yes... on Father's Day 2013. I'm sure he knew how much I loved and adored him, but every day I wonder if it was enough. I moved to Ohio nearly 13 years ago, and since then only got to see my parents a few times a year... sometimes less. There are times I wish I was closer to home (I'm from upstate New York), so I could see my mother and the rest of my family more often, to make sure they know how much I love and care for them. But two things make it okay...

1. The belief that my family, and friends, know how much they mean to me.

2. An incredible girlfriend here in Ohio, who I don't want to make move away from her own family, like I moved away from mine.

I'm not a big believer in the afterlife, let alone believing my father is looking down upon me now, but just in case he is... I love you, dad.

I hope all of you take a chunk of time out of your day to let your father's, and everybody you love and care for, know how much they mean to you.

I wanted to wrap this up by extending my gratitude to all the dads out there by saying Happy Father's Day to the following Yankees...
