Dad will beam with pride when presented with this tribute and if you frame it, he’ll put it in a place of honor on his wall or desk.

      Thank you for bringing this problem to my attention. I believe we have it resolved and hope it was not too late to make a gift for Dad. After all when we have children, every day is Father’s Day.
