Faith: Father's day


On Sunday, June 16, we in the United States will have the opportunity to celebrate another Father’s Day.

The first official Father’s Day was in 1972, 41 years ago. My father died of a sudden heart attack when I was just about to start my year in grade six. This year will be 50 years since Dad died.

So, as you can see, I haven’t ever been able to celebrate Father’s Day as a son to his father. I never got to buy a funny or serious card for him.
