I have a million amazing memories with my Dad. I remember being very little and sitting in the basement with him for hours while he built and fixed stuff. I know how to use a hammer thanks to my Dad! I'd spend my summers traipsing in cement while he built extra rooms to our country house. He also taught me to sculpt wood and clay, and how to develop and print photographs. And when I was 8, I went to see him perform surgery on a kid who'd blown up his hand. We went to Mexico and had the best time; and to Guyana where he had a gold mine in the middle of the amazon forest, which you could only reach by riding rapids in a tiny boat for 8 hours (hello sunburn). Obviously he worked a lot when I was little, since he's a doctor; and he's kind of a crazy inventor/adventurer who's always looking for a new challenge or a new kooky idea (he's currently writing his thesis to get a doctorate in History!) - but he always made time for me, drove me to school many mornings, took me on many trips - and for the past 10 years, even while I lived on a different continent, we've spoken every night before going to bed, to make sure we were okay and knew everything about what's going on in each other's lives. I've really been blessed with a wonderful Dad.This Father's Day is a bit tough for me, because we learned he's got lung cancer just 5 days ago. And it's the first Father's Day I get to spend with him in 12 years, so I wish I'd been home for all those I missed. Happy Father's Day, Dad. I'm so lucky you were you.

Deep sea fishing with my dad was always the best!

Generally, my Dad was a very good provider. My Mom was a stay-at-home Mom, and my Dad economically provided for us really well. My childhood was stable and secure. Truthfully, I took that for granted until I heard about other people's childhoods. Because of this, I will always honor my Dad.
