Happy Fathers' Day to all the Dads out there!  I am so thankful for the men in my life.  

My Dad:  Sverre Jarl Andersen (my grandparents were from Norway and Sverre is a popular name there) was a wonderful Father and we were very blessed that he lived to 89 years.

My DH, who has always supported me in whatever I did - and now is my daily companion in life.  He puts up with all the sewing, knitting and embroidery that I do, drives our camper thousands of miles and is a wonderful Father to our sons and Grandfather to our five grandchildren.  Plus he makes the bed every day, does the laundry and is a general fix-it man.

DS#1 is a pilot for FedEx in Oregon and the father of Angela (below) and Jakob.

DS#2 lives in Florida and is the father of Abigail (he just graduated from nurses training).

DS#3, lives in Arkansas, is a pilot in the Air Force and the father of Jonah and Eli.

I'm so proud of the wonderful Fathers that my 3 sons have become!  Have a great Fathers' Day!
