To the men who have been influential in our lives, most specifically our fathers and grandfathers: today we pay tribute to you. With all our love, we thank you for the time and love you have given us and continue to give us, for the years you have invested in us, for the guidance you have rendered us.
My favorite memories of childhood are moments my father and grandfather probably do not remember, brief snippets of time they spent with me which spoke love more strongly than could words. For those memories and your love, I do not have sufficient command of language to thank you.
Today we may say the words, but we honor you every day. Thank you.
