    82-unMBter firmind, gaiurday; June 7 1 visas A Tribute To Dads And Husbands
Thank You For Everything /
It’s not easy concentrating a full
year of gratitude in a single day. It
certainly isn’t easy expressing a
lifetime of admiration with a few
short sentences. But these are the
thoughts that our readers sent as a
small token of admiration for their
dads and husbands.
Although a large family and
duties at home keep my dad
extremely busy, he always has time
to spare for people in the commun
ity who need him. He loves child
ren, and unlike some men, he
always bcknowledges them and
speaks to them. Also, unlike some
parents, he has not seemingly for
gotten his youthful days, which
gives him an important asset in
understanding us his children.
I may sound prejudiced, but I
still say, I have never yet met a per
son as tender-hearted, forgiving,
and thoughtful as my father —and
I doubt that I ever will.

Walter Rank likes to take care of flowers, his wife Marie said.
Lucius is a remarkable person
and deserves to be honored on
Father’s Day. Even though he has
an unusual form of degenerative
arthritis (chondrocalcinosis), he
still manages much of his farm
work. He deserves an A+ for put
ting up with our cat. Ten years ago,
he was far from being a cat lover.
