Dear Dad

Like the rest of us, dads have faced a new reality these past few months. Father’s Day also takes on a new meaning, as many have emerged stronger, wiser and happier thanks to spending more time with family or, at least, appreciating them more. Tell him you love him with a token of your affection. If you can, give him a hug, too. Virtual or otherwise.
