    My Pops taught me how to stand up for myself. How not to take crap from anyone, how to dream big, as well as to pursue those dreams with vigour and a fervent heart. Happy Father's Day, Dad!

    I have never heard my father yell or raise his voice at all.  Kinda surprising since he was an Army Sergeant.  He also was a sharp shooter and instructor with medals in pistol and rifle.  I'm sure he is responsible for my work ethic.

    My dad is a wonderful man.

    He taught me:

    how to climb trees inadequately
    how much fun you could have with a stick
    how to run away effectively
    to be terrified of the dark
    and spiders
    how to drive. Like you own the road
    how to strip a chicken like a caveman
    how to play rugby. The kind when the ref isn't looking
    how to cheat at pub quizzes
    how to drink. And look suitably drunk
    how much fun you can have at a beach with seaweed

    He also taught me:
    how to have fun
    to laugh
    to enjoy life
    how to handle lifes' knocks
    and a whole bunch of other useful 'get along in life' tools

    Happy Fathers day to my dad. And dads everywhere smile

    I am ultimately grateful for the life, the actual physical life, my father gave me through his seed. And frankly that is probably the best thing I could say about what he gave to me.

    I have had to do a lot of forgiveness and creating of a better internal father archetype for myself this life.

    Before he died when I was 20 years old, he did provide a few  good examples for life...he made and built a lot of things in his workshop, setting an example of inventiveness, determination and the focus and organization needed to accomplish such things. He also did his best to provide a house and basic physical needs for his family, which he obviously was dedicated to doing.

    This is my first Fathers Day without my dad. He died last November.
    I'm lucky in that he reached the ripe old age of 85 and I got to be there with him to the end.

    The qualities I admired most in him are:
    1. Loyalty -- he was extremely devoted to his parents, to his wife, and to his family and friends.

    2. Faith -- he was devout. It was a blessing to be there with him and pray with a priest who gave him his last rites. Before that my dad and I had shared spiritual time with the chaplain. He was not afraid to die. As a result, I was able to lose my fear of losing him.

    3.Modesty -- My dad quietly moved up in the world from being a fireman's son in the Bronx to being an internationally known labor attorney. But he didn't boast or brag about his accomplishments.

    4. Prudence -- Through his conservative habits he was able to put away quite a bit of money and he invested wisely in the stock market. Even raising a family he always saved more than he spent.

    5.Humor -- My dad was a wonderful story teller. Being Irish, he had a gift for it. He was able to remember the details of his stories -- whether they were from his WWII exploits or us kids growing up -- until the very end of his life.

    Not sure how to say this, but the most amazing thing about my dad was he used to be a G-man. Yes, an FBI agent! But the Dad I remember most vividly is the devoted grandfather (much mellowed) he became. That duality really blows me away.

    Here's to my Dad. I love him and miss him.
