Email Insights: Dr. Charles Crist’s Father’s Day message for his son

in Uncategorized by

In the spirit of Father’s Day, Dr. Charles Crist reminisces on his good fortune to have a son like former Florida governor — and current Democratic candidate — Charlie Crist.

“Father’s Day isn’t just for kids to appreciate their dads,” said the elder Crist in an email message to his son’s supporters. “It’s also for fathers to reflect on our kids, and the people we’ve raised them to be.”

“I’m a lucky father,” he adds.

As their only son, Charlie Crist lives by the rules Dr. and Nancy Crist instilled in him and his three sisters — kindness, respect, gratitude and treating others the way you want to be treated.

It is encouraging to see the immense pride any father shows for a son, especially one like Charlie Crist, someone who has achieved so much for others — and the entire state of Florida.
