How fortunate you are to still have your father. I'm
not that far from being 80 myself, and I think a
speech would not mean all that much to me
personally, but a few nice memorable "thank-you's"
from children would be just what I'd love to hear
"Thank you Dad for teaching me to save money".
"Thank you Dad for teaching me to ride a bike"
That's what I think would mean the most. Make
it as long as you like, and throw in the "life's
values" that he taught to you, or maybe he was
the cook in the family...or maybe he sat there
and ate some of the first cake you baked without
making a face...LOL Perhaps he taught you to
pray or spell or helped you with multiplication tables
as mine did. The "thank-you's" are yours and his
own precious memories. Let him know you remember.
You get the picture.
All the best,

Best advice? Keep it SHORT! : ) A few TY's, and on to the cake.

Speak from your heart - tell him your favorite memories, honor the values he taught you, the wisdom he passed on to you etc.
