Here's to the strong and silent one

Here's to the strongest man that we know, and the quietest. The one with the fewest words, but with the greatest actions. Today, we would like to take the opportunity to thank you for everything that you have done for our family. It seems that thank you will never be enough for all the sacrifices that you have made in order for us to have a bright future. All of your actions often go unacknowledged but there is a quiet nobility in the way that you always put your family before yourself. 

To the man who resembles Christ in more ways than one, and to the only man that we seek to impress, we love you more than words can express. Thank you for instilling in us a drive to pursue greatness by always pushing us to aim higher and be better. All of our achievements are rooted in the desire to make you proud of us. 

Distance means nothing to those who are strong in faith and in love, and you have been proof of that. Half-way across the world and yet we feel your love for us as if you were standing next to us with your arm around our shoulders protecting us. You are a living superhero who has actually climbed mountains to help others and who's even swam with the sharks in the depths of oceans, but that does not compare to the luckiness that we feel for having you as a father. 

Happy birthday, and love always,

Kimberly + Anne
