A Tribute to my Dad

Dallas, Dad and DudleyPing Pong Championship.... Guess who won??? The gentleman on the right!! We are all really good at going through the chow line.

Dear Dad,

Happy Father's Day to you.... I tried calling but got an answering machine... Just wanted to make sure that you know YOU'RE THE BEST DAD IN AMERICA...

Thank you for ALL YOU'VE ever done to bless all five of us children.

The food in our tummies...
The monies that we spent..
The games that we played...
The gas in our cars...
The cars that we wrecked...
The sermons that we borrowed...
The jokes that we heard...
The clothes that we wore...
The bills that you paid...
The house that we lived in...
The fish that we caught...
The spankings that some of us deserved (Ha)...
The trips to St. Louis...
The travels to Norman...
The letters that you've written...
The tears that you've cried...
The dog named Rowdy...
The first set of Golf Clubs...
The first mini-bike...
The large fish you put in mother's tub (Ha) ...
The wisdom...
The advice...
The laughter...
The love...
The Church that you led...
The people that you baptized...
The example that you set...
The way you loved mom...

And most of all......
The Jesus that you pointed us towards.

Thank you dad...
You are the best.
And as you've always said... You're number one... right after me... (hahahahahaha)
I love you.
Your son....... Dudley !!!

P.S. Thanks for my name... what were you thinking?
