Happy Father's Day to Mr. Charles Hathaway

Posted by Al Hathaway Saturday, June 11, 2011

I spent last week in Hampton, Virginia at the Hampton University Minister's Conference. It is one of the largest Minister's Conferences in the country. As I walked through the stores in the Hampton area, on display were Father's Day sale items. I walked into Macy's when I returned to Baltimore and upon entering the store I was greeted by sales persons offering sample fragrances for me to smell that could be bought as cologne for one's Father. What was clear to me, it was not necessary to wait until Father's to pay tribute to a wonderful father. Therefore, I will do it right now!

God as blessed my life with a tremendous father - Mr. Charles A. Hathaway.

He is an authentic Christian, who practices his faith in his lifestyle and the advice he gives. Each day I count it a blessing to be able to talk with him or visit him. He is humble, but strong in spirit. He is proud of his children and grandchildren, as well as, all of his relatives. He is the patriarch of our extended family, and he carries that responsibility well. He frequently sends cards to his relatives acknowledging significant moments in their lives. He calls the more senior members to express his love and concern for them. His home and his heart is always open to us. I have a deep and abiding love and respect for him. He is one of the most important people I know. When I grow up, I want to be just like him.
