24: A Dad is a person who is loving and kind, And often he knows what you have on your mind. He's someone who listens, suggests, and defends. A dad can be one of your very best friends! He's proud of your triumphs, but when things go wrong, A dad can be patient and helpful and strong In all that you do, a dad's love plays a part. There's always a place for him deep in your heart. You're even more glad, More grateful and proud just to call him your dad! Thank you, Uncle Buck for listening and caring, for giving and sharing, but, especially, for just being you!
