Dear Tom,

My name is Jasmine and I want to nominate my father Jimmie Dean for Real Fathers Real Men.

My dad is an outstanding father and an even better grandfather. He is now out of work due to a back injury. He was driving trucks and delivering food and fell six feet off a dock.

My dad has always worked since he was 15 or 16. He helps me with my two girls ages 2 and 4.  He’s more than a grandfather to them and my kids love him. I can go on more but i think my dad deserves some help with his house.

He has been a homeowner for 15 years and it has never had any renovations. Since he must stay in that house, and since he’s unable to work, i believe he should enjoy his surroundings.

Please help me in making his day Tom. Thanks!
