Eyes crinkled by laughter;
mouth spreading in a toothless grin;
rounded belly shaking with mirth;
there’s no one quite like Happy Jack!
Humor racing through his imaginative brain;
compassion lacing his words of endearment.
Happy Jack, a face of love
and a heart full of laughter that’s my….
Truth, honesty, integrity, a man of honor,
caring, giving, and sincerity.
Husband, dad, friend and many other roles
is my Happy Jack!

Author’s note: This was a birthday gift to honor my dad, although his title was step-dad
he never allowed the step get in the way of loving me.
