This is a day for Autumn and me to honor and celebrate our Dad‘s life. He is no longer with us and every Father’s Day is somewhat difficult for us. We lost our Dad to evil cancer almost 9 years ago, as most of you kind readers know. This year we decided just some thoughts about our Dad and sharing some Father’s Day quotes would be a good thing. We were blessed with the most awesome and loving Dad, he was also our friend. Dad was so loved by our big family, countless friends and he just had that way of including everyone in the love and caring. Being Italian, he looked after all 6 of his daughters and if the guys had intentions of marriage…Dad made sure they were in it with love and total commitment. He was the best Husband to our Mom and Father to all 6 of us, as well as being the best Grandpa! I’m not bragging and trumping any of this up, honestly because it is the absolute truth. One thing that made Dad special is we all just knew whatever bad or sad thing that was going on in our lives he would sure do his level best to fix. He made us laugh, he loved us joining in singing and our house was filled with music. We all learned to love nature and being out-of-doors with camping, hiking, swimming, and the list goes on! He was just the best, we all miss him very much. He knows this of course, Dad is busy watching over all of us from Heaven. As long as his memory is kept alive, he will always be with us…Happy Father’s Dad, we love you!
1.Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a Dad~Anne Geddes
2.He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it~Clarence Buddington Kellard
3.Old as she was, she still missed her Daddy sometimes~Gloria Naylor
4.There’s something like a line of gold thread running through a man’s words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick it up in your hand and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself~John Gregory Brown
5.My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me~Jim Valvano
8.They say from the instant he lays eyes on her, a father adores his daughter. Whoever she grows up to be, she is always to him that little girl in pigtails. She makes him feel like Christmas. In exchange, he makes a secret promise not to see the awkwardness of her teenage years, the mistakes she makes or the secrets she keeps~Author Unknown
9.I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection~Sigmund Freud
10.A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again~Enid Bagnold
