As we've sojourned down the open road,
we've come to a very simple conclusion...
Fathers are important.
Having been both a son and a father,
we have come to realize just how much
sons and daughters expect, need and like
to have personal heroes they can look up
to and admire.
Honesty, integrity, a sense of humor...
These are a few of the character traits
gleaned from lives of our fathers.
Donna and I are thankful for the examples
our fathers, William Morgan and Emery
Smith, set for us. We are proud to call
them our fathers
