Part 2 of My Father's Day Tribute

My Son's Who Are Now Fathers
My oldest son, Jeremy with his daughter Sabrina

My third son, Jesse, with Fatima, and their daughters, Vivianna and Olivia

My fourth son, Daniel, with Jordan and T.J. My son-in-law to be with his son Anthony

and I can't leave out my second son Chad. Chad doesn't have any kids yet but he is a wonderful brother to his siblings! I am proud of Chad that he and his wife have the courage to say they aren't ready to have kids yet even though it is "expected" of them.I am really proud of all of my boys. They are good dad's and love their kids. They are all good brothers to their younger siblings too which I think is an important that they are good role model for the littler ones. Thanks boys for being son's, fathers and brothers that I am proud of!!
I have to say a big Thank You to Earl who is not my older boys father but has stepped up to the plate and been there for the boys whenever they need anything. Earl considers all my kids his kids. It hasn't been easy with their real dad still around, but Earl you have been so good to my kids and I really do appreciate that!

Earl gave my daughter in law Jenn away at her and Chad's wedding.

Earl and Mallory being Cabbage Heads on St. Patrick's Day. Earl always makes us a traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner, Corn beef, cabbage, potatoes, and carrots.

Earl has been the kids baseball coach for several years now. He will do cheers with Mallory, play cap guns with the boys, anything to have fun with the kids. Earl is the "fun" parent. Earl walks the kids in every morning to their classrooms and makes sure they are settled in and he always makes sure the kids have money to participate in the extra things at school.The grand kids all love him and call him their Papa. Earl has worked got jobs for the older boys and done lots of errands for them. He worked with my oldest son for a couple of years which wasn't always easy. I love Jeremy to death but he has some short term memory issues and he is very impulsive and not always an easy person to work with.

Thanks Earl for being such a great dad and Papa!!
