Countdown to 40 ~ 20 Days

Dear Ralph,

There are only 20 more days until you turn 40. I know the following quality has been with you since you were very young:

Whenever I marvel at something you've done, especially when it involves the boys, you always say, "Who else was going to do it?" I know that as a single dad, a lot was left up to you alone. But not all dads would have taken the extra time to do a lot of the things you did, and still do.

You know what needs to be done and you always come through when it's most needed. And you are instilling that in the boys as well. They are learning from example how to do things honorably; that's a wonderful quality to pass on to them.
