A great supporting punching bag , a sparkling candle of encouragement, a lighthouse to help your way in life, a frequent adviser, a teacher, a forgiver, granting wishes, a never failing heart to never ever give up, always pert and full of lively spirit, a companion to go snuggle up with when you are sad, a close friend you can lean on, sometimes stern, striving to make us a successful person … a genuine, un-bogus hero in your life time… Who does all this remind you of? Hmmmm…..
Yes, Dad… Those special three letters can ignite the flame of unconditional love, brighten you up with that wonderfully light feeling as memories turn into a marvelous reverie.

Anne Frank- Otto H. Frank a truly dear father to Anne had made a big influence in Anne’s life. He understood many things in Anne’s mind. But, because of Hitler’s raging anti-Jew restrictions, Otto Frank found a hiding place in his office. Anne wanted her diary published when the war was over. Sadly, she passed away ( after being captured) just three months short of her sixteenth birthday. To fulfill Anne’s wish, Otto Frank published her diary..
Me- He might be really busy
He might be exhausted and dizzy
But the cheerfulness and friendliness
Can never be unraveled by tiredness
His soft words and smile
Can be felt from a mile
His stern advice
Can stop all vice
And pull you along in the right way
Happy Father’s Day!!
