Reflections on Father's Day

God blessed me with wonderful earthly fathers.
Dick Lutz is my dad. He's the duct tape that holds our family together. He's supportive of all of us and never fails to tell us he loves us.
Granddaddy Lutz was a man of few words. Before he died I asked him to sign my autograph book. He worte, "We love you. William Lutz." My grandmother asked what he wrote and he told her it was just between us.
Granddaddy Hubbard enjoyed telling us he loved us so much he wouldn't take a hundred dollars for us, no make that a thousand dollars, and he'd end with, "I wouldn't take a million dollars for you." We'd always laugh.
My husband, Tim, is a great father to our boys. He's always there for them in whatever ways they may need him to be.
My father-in-law is a gentleman in every sense of the word. He doesn't get around as much now, but when we're together the love he feels for his family shines through.

My oldest son, Bill, is now a father and so the next generation begins.

See if you can figure out who each dad is. Happy Father's Day!
