90 and Going Strong

Happy birthday, dad

My dad, who is turning 90, is one of the kindest, wisest people I know.

Tomorrow is a very special day for our family—my dad’s 90th birthday.

My dad has had an enormous influence on my life. He is the wisest person I know. Like a lot of sons and daughters, I didn’t always recognize my father’s wisdom when I was growing up. But eventually I figured it out and I have turned to him for advice more times than I can count.

My dad is also one of the most generous and kind people I know. Our foundation would not be what it is without his guidance and inspiration.

Our family had a party for Dad yesterday. We put together a video celebrating him and I thought I would share a part of it here. Thanks, Dad, for all your love. I am lucky and proud to be your son.
