I can't get to the form either, so like the others, hope this counts. Last year, we did something different for Father's Day. Had breakfast at a Knights of Columbus after church, then a car show in downtown Utica. Great weather, 3 generations present.

What can I say? I am the daughter of a retired Rouge Factory Worker. I grew up with my father working 12 hours midnight shifts. When I left for school he was still working, when I came home from school he was sleeping. When I was asleep he was leaving for work. My Dad sacrificed a lifetime in order to provide for his family. My best memory was my wedding day and him driving me to the church. He offered to put me on a plane and call the whole thing off. Glad that I didn't because I wouldn't have missed him walking me down the aisle for anything. My "Daddy" still calls each and every one of his girls his favorite but I know that I am really his favorite. :)

My apologies for the problems with the form. Your names will be added to the list at the will-call booth at the concert. Look for an email.
