Dad's { 10 } Commandments (1) Obey Your Parents. (2) Respect Your Elders. (3) Be Kind To Others. (4) Do Unto Other's As You Would Like Them To Do Unto You. (5) Everyone Needs A Friend , No Matter What. ( 6) Leave For Work 15 Minutes Early In Case You Have A Flat Tire. You Won't Be Late. (7) If You Are Short, Don't Wear Stripes The Wrong Way. It Will Make You Bigger Than You Really Are. (8) You Know Right From Wrong. (9) Take A Deep Breath Before Opening The Door At Work. Leave Your Problems Outside. And Pick Them Up When You Leave. (10 ) Always Be There For Another, Family Is Suppose To Stick Together. Thanks For the Love, Memories, Laughter And Fun. You Treated Us All Equally The Same, While Holding The Same Tight Rein, When All Was Said And Done And As We Grew. The Next Family Generations Are Well On Their Way. Our Families Are Coming For Visits, But Not To Stay. Amen
