|James White Maritz, my father.|
Later in the year, as Father's day was approaching, she once again asked the same card company to help her with Father's day cards, they again gave her 500. When she went to the prison not one card was taken. This to me was amazing and very sad.
So, because I really loved my father and have missed him ever since 1978 when he died, I'm writing this tribute to him.
Dad, I still miss you and would like to say to you, "Thank you for all that you taught me. Thank you for the values you instilled in me and the love you showed me. I know that on many occasions I disappointed you and frustrated you but you always loved me and were good to me. You were the kind of father that every boy needs, someone to look up to and admire. You were amazing and all your children took your example of how to live to heart. May the Lord keep you with Him until we come to you in Heaven. We all still love you dad and look forward to being with you once again." Felicity, Charmian, Geoffrey, Myles and Toni.
Fathers are very important, especially for boys.

My son James is, at this moment, on Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain. Lord please keep James safe, this I ask as his father and as one who loves him. Lord, I'm asking this of you in the name of Jesus your son whom I know you love very much. Bless you Lord for all the fathers of the world, even though to some they may not seem perfect.
Happy Father's day my blogger friends, may your example of how to live go forth in your children. Love to you all, Geoffrey.
