Happy Father’s Day…..

We honour our Father and celebrate the gift of life we received from him; the strength, courage, love and support of his presence, or the opportunities for growth by his absence. We are grateful for all our forefathers, those who played major roles during our formative years on a spiritual and intellectual level.
