Fathers. They make us laugh when we’re feeling down, and support us unconditionally.
This Father’s Day, our team joined together to share their message:
Here’s to You!
Yajaira: My dad is the hardest working man in the world and I have always looked up to him for this. My dad walks into a room and is the life of the party,He can make me laugh at any time of the day and can make friends wherever he goes . He taught me that a simple smile can make you a new friend.
Nick: My father is great because his compassion and bright heart bring up those around him.
He does his best and adapts to whatever is thrown at him, and is a very open minded person.
Heather: My father is incredibly kind – he helps without being asked and never wants the credit. His kindness has saved animals, humans and even spiders. I’m grateful my sons have such a loving, compassionate grandfather to look up to.
Rachel Appleton: My dad never missed 1 sporting event for my sister and I! He was at EVERY one and we played a lot of different sports. It meant a lot that he was so supportive!
Rachel North: My Dad was a dedicated runner and would run every morning. I greatly admired his dedication to his hobbies and how he found big joy in small moments. It’s nice to think about him and our memories on my daily runs!”
Peg: My dad was always great for a good laugh. He’d tell the same old stories over and over, and we 10 kids never tired of hearing them. His biggest problem in telling a joke or a funny new story was that he usually ended up cracking himself up before the punch line and we’d have to yell out, “Daddy — finish the story!” He also could wiggle his ears, ONE at a time, and then together in opposite directions. Now, who can say THAT about their dad? He was also our rock and leader. Love you Dad!
Jane: My Dad was always patient and explained things very clearly to me. He loved to solve problems and figure things out. When I get frustrated, I think of how calm he was, and this helps me stay composed.
Ariel: I love my dad because he is always available to help with anything big or small. This included regular childcare during Covid shutdowns and now our almost 2 year old loves him and requests to see him several times per day. My dad is also a great listener and walking encyclopedia; he answers even simple questions with detailed, well thought out responses.
Happy Father’s Day to all Dads!
