It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves...and now these things remain; faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love." We love you, Dad.
