Happy 60th Dad

My dad turns 60 today.

He is who Koen gets his gift of gab from.

He is sensitive and I'm thankful that he understands my feelings.

He will give great advice when asked.

He doesn't let much stand in his way and will do whatever it takes to make his dreams come true.

He rode a jetski up to Alaska.  He got his pilots licence.  He bought a plane.  He flies wherever he wants to go.

He taught me how to give a firm handshake and look someone in the eye.

He taught me how to ask good questions.

He showed us the value in having fun and joking around.

He showed us what a great husband looks like.  He ensured we were respectful of our mom.  He always held her hand when they walked and gave her a kiss when he got home from work.  He listened to her and enjoyed just being with her.

He has worked hard to stay healthy.

Happy birthday dad!!  A lot has changed over the past 10 years and I'm so thankful for you.

Love, Louise
