tongue  Mika; know how you feel, my youngest daughter ran last year in Phila.  It does a father's heart GOOD yeah
 
I really get emotional when daughter post here.  The pain, and sadness they feel is more difficult on their DaD then the cancer itself.  On Fathers Day (and every other day of the year) we feel so much LOVE for our Sons & Daughters.  their Love 7 Support keep us HEALTH & HAPPY!
 
HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO EVERYONE!  AND "GRAND POPS" TOO yeah

Mika - please thank your daughter for me. Yes, you must be very proud of her.

Don & I went to a Tampa Bay Rays game on Saturday night and for every home run that was hit the team made a donation to Moffitt Cancer Center. They do this on a pretty regular basis.
