Deeds so great, words so wise, love so beyond reason,
A book must be written to attempt to record all these fantasies…
The prayers fervently given without my knowledge;
The patience in teaching despite the challenge;
The toilsome work and sleepless nights many a time unappreciated;
The scoldings given too great an amount even to be estimated.
The laughs participated in — endless.
The lessons learned — timeless.
The love so lavished, treasured forever.
Not always valued as it should, but unnoticed? Never
A few notions of who a father is…
But these are only an introduction to this book of yours.
God so beautifully designed the cover,
And you have continued to gracefully write it with the help of another.
