Happy Father’s Day!

Dad, Mom, Deborah, Cathy, and Jim in 1958


“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.”

Jim Valvano (1946 – 1993)
American basketball player, coach, and broadcaster




Cathy, Dad, Mom, Deborah, and Jim in 1984


I was mightily blessed with a fabulous father. He and Mom enjoyed over 70 years together, and Dad always set an extraordinary example of great parenting.

Happy Father’s Day to all the fabulous fathers!
