I’d seen my father. He was a poor man, and I watched him do astonishing things.
– Sidney Poitier, American actor
After losing two games in a baseball tournament in Martinez on Saturday, my son, Jacob, and his Hornets team came back to win the two Sunday games. Happy Father’s Day to his dad and manager. It was a nice gift to give and receive.
My father, who was born in 1907 and passed away in 1995, would have been 106 this yea. I celebrate his courage that brought him to this country in the 1920s and gave him numerous adventures from Seattle to New York to Los Angeles.
I celebrate my father-in-law, Jerry, who gave his children a firm foundation and a sense of responsibility in life and to their children.
I celebrate my husband, David, who is a wonderful, loving dad to our two children and who believes in me and encourages me as a writer. There is no better gift that I continuously receive.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads in the world.
