They were both former members of the center. Sunday, June 20th is Father's Day. So much is always said about mothers and that's good, because I'm a mother. But I sometimes think fathers don't get recognized as they should. It makes me feel good when sometimes, even now, people tell me that they still remem- ber my Dad and what a good man he was. He really was a good man and I have so many good memories, I could write a book, but that's enough about remembering my Dad. I found this poem, written by Helen Steiner Rice. I thought I might pass it on to all of you. Fathers are Wonderful People Fathers are wonderful peo- ple too little understood, and we do not sing their praises as often as we should. For, somehow, father seems to be the man who pays the bills, while mothers bind up little hurts and nurses all our ills. And Father struggles daily to live up to "his image" as protector and provider and "hero of the scrim- mage." And perhaps that is the rea- son we sometimes get the notion that Fathers are not subject to the things we call emo- tion. But if you look inside Dad's heart, where no one else can see, you'll find he's sentimental and as "soft" as he can be. But he's so busy every day in the grueling race of life, he leaves the sentimental stuff to his partner and his wife. But Fathers are just "won- derfur' in a million different ways, and they merit loving com- pliments and accolades of praise. For the only reason Dad aspires to fortune and success, is to make the family proud of him and to bring them happiness. And like our Heavenly Father he's a guardian and a guide, someone we can count on to be always on our side. i ovations o Remodeling * Additions Competitive Rates* ""o ............ ......
