Remember dad on special day

To the editor:

Remember dad on Father’s Day.

Forget the tools, the hammer, saw, lawn mower, rifles and fishing gear.

Definitely no socks, ties, T-shirts or shorts. His room, dresser drawers, closets and garage are resembling a hoarder’s treasure trove of what’s, in most cases, junk.

Remember dad on Father’s Day. Gather around and give him a box of chocolates, some hugs and kisses and beautiful words that will last for eternity.

Just a thought: In one’s own words, leave a thought for dad, just as poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote for her dear one. “How do I love thee? I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears of all my life, and if God chooses, I shall but love thee better after death.”

Happy Father’s Day.
