Happy Father’s Day to all the incredible men in my life and my children’s lives. My daddy, who has been there from day one! You’re an amazing dad and a great Papaw! My stepdad, Larry, who cared for me like I was his own and has stepped up to the role of Skipper for Punk and Bug. David who just recently came into our lives through his relationship with my mom. Punk and Bug love you so much already! My incredible husband, Tim. You are the best husband and father I could ever hope for our lives. Thank you for everything you do and we can’t wait until you come home! My father-in-law, Tim, who is a great man and Pa. Punk’s DYING to go fishing with his Pa! My Grandad, while we don’t always see eye to eye has always been one of the strongest presences in my life and I love him dearly. My step-grandfather, Larry, a loving and caring man who loves us like we were his blood! My grandfathers-in-law, two incredibly loving and special men. My step-great-grandfather, Pa Clark, such a sweet and loving man. And remembering today, my Papaw Wilson, who I didn’t get to know well, but enjoyed the time we did have and my Grandaddy Clark who was one of the best men I’ve ever known and named my son after. I have been blessed with great men in my life. Punk certainly has a lot of male role models in his life and I am so thankful for that. Any man can be a father, but it takes a special man to be a Dad. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
