I just want to say thank you.
Thank you for all of your never-ending love, support, and wise words. You always seem to have the answer no matter how tough the situation seems. Thank you for showing me that life doesn't have to be serious all the time, that it's okay to have fun. For all of the pre-game, pre-interview, pre-anything pep talks, the talks that make me feel as if I could conquer the whole world. I also believe you could write motivational books for a living.
Thank you for teaching me how to be responsible and for allowing me to learn things for myself, yet always willing to back me up and lead me in the right direction. For funding my bank account when it gets rather low, for helping me succeed throughout college, and for filling my gas tank when it's time to come back home. For all of your hard work and the sacrifices you've made in order to provide for our family, you have set an example for me when it comes to the business world and my future career.
Thank you for always being there for me and having such a positive influence in my life- Not everyone is blessed with both parents who are present 100% of the time like I am, and I am forever thankful for that. For all of the vacations, dinner dates, and family nights, those are memories I will forever cherish and look back on. (forever craving an ice cream/milkshake from San Fran from here on out).
Thank you for being the "cool dad", the one all of my friends look forward to hanging out with, even if you end up telling lame jokes or liking them better than you like me. I have lived a stress-free and comfortable life, and that is all thanks to you. (And Mom).
Thank you for everything you have ever done and have yet to do. There is nothing I could possibly do that would come close to show my appreciation and gratitude.
You have set such a wonderful example of what a father and husband should be, and I for that I am thankful. Thank you for everything, I love you!
