Since today is Father’s Day, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the dads out there a happy one.  For the past twelve years this has been a very difficult day for me.  My father passed away from lung cancer on May 5, 2000.  He was a wonderful man and dad.  We spent a lot of time together when I was a very young girl.  I like to think that I am very much like him in many ways.

We both loved animals, art and cars.  In fact, I blame my dad for the fact that I am an absolute lunatic with my cars!  I miss my dad but mostly feel regret for the fact that he didn’t live to see his grandchildren become the successful adults they are today.  I cried at my son’s graduation from medical school out of pride and sadness that my father didn’t get to experience this wonderful moment.  I regret that my father didn’t get to see his granddaughter become a success in her career and live all over the world.

Anyway, just wanted to wish all the wonderful dads out there a Happy Father’s Day!  Enjoy your day with family, friends and loved ones because that is the greatest gift of all……time spent with those you love and who love you!
