To my dad...

How sad that the last time I posted was on mothers day.. Now that it is Fathers Day here I am again. I couldn't let this chance to tell my dad what a great man he is. I have been blessed with the best parents. Each year that I get older I realize it even more.
Dad, I would like to tell you THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart for the many things you have done for me. I thank you for being my teacher, my principal, my bishop, and most important my dad.. I truely respect you for the way you have lived your life. I don't remember one time that you raised your voice at us or mom. You and mom showed us what a great marriage should be. You have always stuck up for the things that you believed in, even when it wasn't the most popular. You have taught me alot of what it means to give service and not worry about the little things..
Us kids have many great memories of just one day deciding to go on a vacation. We never knew when but we always had a great time no matter what.
I will always cherish the times that we went walking while I lived at the ranch and the many conversations we had about children and what we should do with them... I miss being at the ranch and sharing that time with you.. I am thankful for the Grandpa that you are. Everyone of your grandchildren love you and respect you.
Thanks for being the greatest, most hard working , loving , understanding dad. I am lucky and thankful to call you my dad. I love you.. Love Amee

Your Dad is GREAT! He really is a nice guy. He is a good example of pure kidness.

I have to tease you about not posting. I know you have a lot going on in your house.... so come on, we want to hear about it.

Happy Father's Day to Clay also!

Yes it has been way too long between posts..I know you have something to share with us!!

Your dad was a great example of the priesthood for me, I can remember saying many family prayers with you all in your home! Maybe someday my dad will join the ranks of a priesthood holder? With your dad, Duey, Lewis Tenney and many more how could he not?! haha

Happy Fathers Day to Clay too!
