A Father’s love is unconditional, in any situation he is the first to greet you with a warm embrace, immediately followed by a joke, and ultimately ending with an “I love you and I am so proud of you.” A Father always places the needs of others’ before himself and is sure to remind you, through his infectious and gracious spirit, of all the good times you’ve spent together. A Father’s life becomes a lesson created to make the lives of his children better than his own, every moment becomes part of us forever. There is not a day that goes by you will ever forget how much his love is present even when he is not—his love is forever unconditional.
