From Father’s Day, 1995

You taught me patienceJoe Kearney

by living at ease

You taught me charity

by freely giving of yourself

You taught me faith

by believing in me

You taught me hope

by looking to the future

You taught me to dream

by never saying never

You taught me to love

by living in your heart.

I love you dad, and always will. I always count on you to be there.  You are in my heart and in my head and I live my life knowing that your standards are also mine.


Even now that he is gone, I count on him to guide me by following his example.  I was lucky to have a father who was both strong and soft at the same time.  He is my hero, he is my protector, he is my heart.

Happy Father’s Day, dad.  I miss you.
