My father passed away in 2006 - so this marks the 3rd fathers day that he has been gone. And even though I have 3 children of my own fathers day always feels like a day to be a little sad.
I know lots of people don't have great relationships with their fathers but I did. We were best friends and did everything we could together. I also had an enourmous amount of respect for my father in how he carried himself - both in family life and in business. I credit most of my success to things I learned from watching him.
So my thoughts and prayers to out to everyone who has lost a father this year. Cherish the good memories and pass on the best of what they taught you to your children. That's the best way to keep their memories alive.
