You're someone I've always admired, loved and wanted to please. The man I aspired to match, in skill and wisdom. The kind of man I always hoped I could be. Strong and sure, fearless when facing danger yet tender and supportive of a young boy struggling to find his way. You never demanded more than I could give, never made me feel less than what you expected. Your gruff exterior could never mask the love within your heart.

You have always been there for me. You said it best when I faced my darkest hour, "Family don't end with blood."

Happy Father's Day Bobby.
