I realized that you all did not get to read my dad's 50th tribute and I told you all that after he read it I would let you all read it. So, here it is, along with a photo of him reading it. "Janelle" and my mom decided to make a cameo in this photo!

  1. Nice tribute to your Dad on his 50th birthday. I had my 50th this year, and it is a great milestone!
