For my Dad, Gilbert


There was a quality about you, that touched my heart. This quality was so special it set you apart. Your special ways of doing things in everything you touched, the warmth for others is why I loved you so much! Your gentle and loving ways, and you gave so much to others! You had so many good and loving qualities, that I don't see in others, and I am truly Thankful for being able to love you!


HAPPY FATHERS DAY Gilbert~


The third Sunday in June is a day for showing appreciation for fathers and all other father figures. It is a tradition started by Mrs. Dodd of Washington who wanted to honor her father, a Civil War veteran who raised six children by himself.

She was inspired by the Mother's Day celebration. The first observance of Father's Day took place on June 19, 1910 and it became a national holiday in the US in 1966. It is also celebrated in many other countries but on different dates.
