As a child my first chapter in life. daddy takes me by the hand, I learn to walk, I learn to ride a bike, I learn how to eat healthy, I start growing and every day daddy teaches me new things, the ways of life, how to be a man, how to survive.
He shows me how to build, how to work on cars, he comes to my rescue when in need because he is dad.
Then comes the second chapter in life. we find a neutral ground were we are best friends, we visit we laugh, he sees me helping my kids raising them teaching them
The same way as he did me.
Then comes the third chapter in life all the things that daddy taught me as his son come back home to him, I help him with his truck, I repair around the house the same as he taught me, i help him make healthy choices in life and how to survive. I return all the favors possible with joy and gratitude, because I am his son. I was blessed with the best. Thank you Dad for being my hero!!!

Love, Bill and Charae Little
