Happy Father’s Day, Dad…I miss you Happy Father’s Day to All Dads!
But in the late 1990s, my dad realized that it was time for a change and that’s when we sold out of McDonald’s Restaurants and bought into Panera Bread restaurants.
It’s almost Father’s Day. And it will be the first one for me without my dad.
He died May 5, 2014.
I am so lucky that I was able to work with my dad for my entire professional life. But I’d be less than honest if I didn’t confess that I miss him terribly.
But he’s with me a lot of the day. He’s there when I walk into stores and greet each and every one of our associates and our customers. He had a special way of talking to customers and associates. It came from his genuine gratitude and humility.
As we approach Father’s Day, I just wanted to take a few minutes to remind all of the sons and daughters out there to really appreciate and applaud and just love your fathers.
Life is never long enough.
