He is...

He comes from strong Irish blood...
Has always been proud of the fact...
A handsome lad in his youth...
Married my mother and became my dad...
Taught me about faith...
How to tie a tie...
How to tell a good joke...
Has been both grandfather and father to my only girl...
We travelled across the ocean together...
But mostly, he taught me about love.
He is my dad.
Happy Fathers Day Da.

This is so nice. A lovely tribute to a nice looking man who raised a very nice lady. My hats off to him.
Happy Father's Day to them all.
