Hooray for Fathers

Just to set the record straight, unless I have messed up again ( I have already lost all of the pictures once), here are pictures of the fathers in the family plus some of their loved ones. Norda and I want you all to know how much we love each of you.

Neal Maxwell wrote the following: "A father who loves his children, and who is truly striving, for instance, to become a better man, sends off to his children all kinds of messages, in a variety of ways, that let them know he loves them and that he is a serious disciple of Jesus Christ. Then his children can more easily forgive him the tactical errors, because his basic message is intact: he believes in God and he cares for his family."

And may it ever be so!


  1. Dad, thanks for the perfect Father's Day post. I love the pictures especially the first one. Classic. Of course, it all starts at the top (i.e. you) with a loving, hard working father setting the standard and showing the rest of us the correct way. For that, I'll be eternally grateful.

  2. Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Dad's in our family!

  3. Happy Father's day to a wonderful teacher, worker, skier and friend. And a shout out to all men in the family...
