SUPER HEROES, that is what they are. However, dads seldom get the credit they deserve, and we all know the showering of love bestowed upon motherhood overshadows Father’s Day. We take the stale tie gesture, awful socks and overall lack of thoughtfulness in finding unique gifts for Dad and bid them adieu. How do we say we love the man who is, above all, a provider? Fearless, loving and selfless — that is Dad, and by all means these characteristics deserve the best in spoils!
