'My Father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.' -Clarence Budington Kelland

He gave you your eye color, your love of old movies, and the inspiration for countless inside jokes that only a father can appreciate. He's your Dad.

A Cup of Comfort for Fathers celebrates the indescribable link between father and child through fifty stirring stories written by, for and in tribute to dads.

From a young father still figuring out his role in his new baby's life to an adult son recounting memories of his long passed-away dad, this collection gives fathers, sons, and daughters countless laughs as well as the opportunity to reflect on your own cherished moments.

Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad.
