By the age of 27 you had four children and had already owned and improved two homes on your own without any financial help from your parents.
On this Father's Day I want to acknowledge and thank you for all the years you devoted to being a strong, reliable man and father, protective and proud, sacrificing and selfless for the sake of your family. You have been brave and caring, determined and dependable. Thank you for your years of coaching, loving, sheltering, advising, understanding, forgiving and guiding. I thank you with all my heart.
Thank you for not throwing in the towel of abandonment when appreciation ran low and your shoulders grew heavy with responsibility.
You have been courageous and selfless ,leaving behind all you knew to move to a better place after you researched many areas for good schools and excellent growth and employment opportunities for your family.
You have been patient and knowledgeable when called upon, never failing in consideration ,and forever dependable, intelligent and inspiring, and someone who I am proud to call my husband, friend, and faithful loving father of our four children as well as grandfather to our seven grandchildren.
I know I couldn't possibly have touched on everything you have done, but this is a small portion of love and thanks for a BIG man.
You have always been available to support, encourage and uplift your children. You have been there to fix a broken toy, a broken car and a broken heart. You were always there to lend a caring, listening ear and a helpful hand at every age and every stage of your children's lives.
We have albums, drawers, computers and minds filled with snapshots of cherished memories of family celebrations, births and baptisms, graduations, engagements, family trips and family time.
Thank you for the time, joy, laughter,and the generosity and love you have always shared!
You taught your children the value of a dollar and how to save instead of spending impulsively. You taught them the value and pride of home ownership in every home we ever owned by always improving and taking care of what we owned. You taught your children the importance of an education by giving them all the opportunity to excel even though you never went to college yourself. You taught them by example, how to be business people and how to invest by your profitable investments and hard work. You taught them to respect authority and others. You showed them the importance of family by always generously opening your door, heart, and wallet to love and care for them.
You are deeply loved and appreciated beyond measure by the person who started this journey with You! This tribute is to you with all my love!
Happy Fathers Day to the one and only Pasquale J. Scibelli ❤
