My father, my fathers…..

Steven Richard Klein, you were my dad, you are my dad, today and always….

Donald Robert Jacobson, you are also, very much so, my dad.  I remember when I met you I knew it wasn’t just a “date”.  I think I told mom that I had a dream you kissed.  Maybe you did that night, or not, it didn’t matter, you were here to stay. ….and as soon as you married my mother, I asked you on your wedding day, “Can I finally call you dad?”

It wasn’t easy raising five children who had all lost a parent.  You and mom made the impossible possible, you still do….

You took a broken hearted family, and made it whole.  You provided for us, loved us, and I never felt for one minute that I wasn’t yours from day one…..You have always been my dad, and always will be, and one day papa Don to my kiddies.

Thank you for raising me, thank you for guiding me, loving me, and never giving up on me.

So many memories…

Thank you Dad, for being my Dad, nurturing me into the woman I am today.  I feel more blessed then I could ever imagine having my best friend as my dad.

    Lovely Lindsay. How wonderful that you had not just one, but two amazing men in your life. And now a third. And perms and scrunchies, funky sweaters AND windbreakers. Wow. In the same pic.

    Oh my – the photos! The best part was that I showed this post to Des and in the particularly bad photo of us all, I pointed out to me and said, “Who’s this, Des?”
    And he just said, “No.”
