Dearest Ah Pa, Happy 48th Birthday. You have been that father to me. You have provided not only every material thing we need, you have shown us great discipline and perseverance, and continue to stand steadfast in every circumstance.

Most of all, you have shown in the many little ways you speak and act, the depth of fatherly love.

There is no way I can thank you enough for enabling me to relate to my heavenly father in the same way.
