Happy Father's Day

This is a tribute to all fathers who are celebrating this day. It is very important for all of us to say thank you. I would like to pay a tribute to my dad, Frank Burke. When I was growing up, he taught me that what is important is what is in your heart. He taught me all about love, support and encouragement. We have our good times and our bad times, but we love each other always and we will be there for each other. We have a real father and son story because of the way we feel about each other. He has a great message about having a son with Down syndrome that he shares with other fathers. It’s about how important it is for a child to always have someone be there. My dad isn’t just there for me, he’s there for my mom and sisters and brother. 

I would like to say happy Father’s Day to all fathers and to my dad and buddy, it’s great to be your son.
