Happy Father's Day my Love! You were her hero. This was your first Daddy Daughter dance with our "little angel". Like you always said "the light of your life from the day she was born." Your love, patience, strength, fun loving ways and devotion to family is what made you the best Dad ever. Your love is etched in our hearts forever and always.

"Once upon a time" is how our story began and "they lived happily ever after forever" is how we lived every second of every day. Thank you for being my knight in shining armor. A love like ours comes once in a lifetime, thank you Gary for being my lifetime love...
Love always and forever,
Cathy

My Life began the first day you fell in LOVE with me. It became complete the day Taylor was born. Our love blossomed into our perfect little family.
You Gary are my love, my life, my everything. Without that love I would never have experienced the joy of being a Mom! And you the perfect Dad!
