Happy Father’s Day to Dads everywhere, living and departed, including all those moms who have to be dads as well.

I wrote this song for my dad… unfortunately, his dementia doesn’t really allow him to fully comprehend it. I’m sure some of you will be able to identify though.

Beautiful song Charlie, all from the heart! I know that even though your Dad may not be able to understand right now, he still feels the love in his heart. Happy Fathers day to you and all the rest of the “Dad’s” out there.
It is so absolutely wonderful to be a “DAD” !!!

What a tribute to you Dad!! You are a talented man Charlie – and I’m sure on some level your Dad was so happy that you paid him this tribute.

Happy Fathers Day to you, and all the Lumberjocks out there.
