Happy Papa's Day to all those of you who are Dads!!
I am one of those few who have been truly blessed with an amazingly wonderful Dad. He's my biggest supporter and most devoted fan. He has probably seen pretty much every show and play reading I have done, as a professional, and the few he's missed were out of his control. He'll do anything for his girls (Mum and my sis and I) with nary a complaint. He's driven me, long distance, to many auditions, and once, when I was sick, drove me 9 plus hours after a show for a voice-over job in another State, and then back for my next performance. He's moved me from one city to another, cross-country, more than once. He's funny, gentle and kind and a truly selfless human being. He's my hero.
Another truly amazing Dad is Dick Hoyt. If you haven't heard about the Team Hoyt story, watch one of the following videos. It is truly inspiring! The first explains their story. The 2nd one is shorter and underscored with music. Incredibly heartwarming. The endless love this man has for his son!
