I want to take a minute today and mention a couple of men: Bill Holton, my father, who died when I was eleven; Jack "Tex" Christian, who married my mother the summer I graduated from high school, who might be the only reason I finished college, and who passed away on Father's Day, 1992; and Joe Kacka, my father-in-law, possibly the most generous man I've ever met, who passed away in 1998.

I guess I should also mention my brothers, Jim, father of three of my five nephews; Kip, father of one nephew and my only niece; and Patrick, father of one nephew so far.

I'm not sure that I qualify, although there's an angel in heaven with my name on it...

Geez, that was depressing.

Happy Father's Day to all of you fathers out there, and to your husbands and sons who are fathers.
