just wanted to say a really big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sweet and loving dadio! dad, i sure miss you today and really wish i could have flown home to be with you, just for your day. on this day you were born, february 17th, i want to say thank you. thank you for giving me life and making me who i am, thank you for believing in me and my crazy dreams, thank you for loving me unconditionally. your sensitivity, passion, hard work ethic, love for animals, goofy sense of humor, and your courage to overcome all of life's obstacles has inspired me more than you'll ever know. i love you so much. happy birthday dear dad! xoxo.
