HAPPY 54th BIRTHDAY, DAD!!!

On January 15th, 1954, the world was changed in the Avery family. Phillip Henry Avery was born. I don't have any pictures to show you of that wonderful day since I wasn't there LOL and I'm sure he is probably glad of that (he knows I would post them hee hee) 20 years later he would go on to marry my mom and 3 years & 2 children later I would appear on scene. I am in no way good with words so I'm not going to even try. I just want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!!!
Here is a poem I found, Dedicated to you DAD!

MY DAD

As I ponder the love that I saw in his eyes,
A Godly love, given without compromise....
I recall many times that he stood by my side,
And prodded me on with great vigor and pride.
His voice ever confident, firm and yet fair,
Always speaking with patience, tenderness and care.
The power and might of his hands was so sure,
I knew there was nothing we couldn't endure.
It's true, a few others provided insight,
Yet, he laid the foundation that kept me upright.
He's the grandest of men to have lived on this earth,
Although he's not royal by stature or birth.
He's a man of great dignity, honor and strength.
His merits are noble, and of admirable length.
He's far greater than all other men that I know,
He's my mentor, my friend, my hero,

HE'S MY DAD!

I LOVE YOU, DAD!
