The photo montage below is one I did for a Photoshop class I took this year showing him as a young boy, my parents wedding, Dad with Governor Branstad (a good friend of his), me and my youngest boy who was named after him..Nicholas Wayne, and the center photo is my favorite one I have of him. In the word "Dad" is an old photo of Dad in his early twenties with his car at the time.
If you're lucky enough to still have your Dad with you, remember the absolute best gift you can give him today is to spend the day with him! He and you will remember these special days more by doing something together than any material gift you could ever give him!
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad
I'd also like to give a little tribute to my Godfather, Jim Foley. He died in a car accident shortly after I was born so I never had the chance to get to know him. Even though he never had the opportunity to have kids of his own he is still an "honorary" father in my eyes. This was the last picture taken of him before he died.
