Whether it is bringing home food for the family (and sometimes caring for other than your own), or watching over the youngsters to keep them safe, "Dad's" are an integral part of the family. Happy Father's Day to all you gents out there who are Dad's.
To my own father, you have been there for me all of my life and I love you dearly.
