The Facts: Fathers hold a special place in our hearts. He may have taught you how to drive a car, given you career advice, or walked you down the aisle. Studies also show the positive impact of an involved dad or father figure can last a lifetime. This influence can enhance self-esteem, educational attainment, and relationships throughout life.

Take time this week to thank your own dad, grandfather, or someone who has filled a fatherly role in your family. Let them know the positive impact they made and just how much they mean to you.

  1. My dad passed away 4.5 Year’s ago and I think about him all the time. I truly do miss having him around, but I know he is in a better place! I talk to him at times and on Father’s Day I told home how much I miss him and all ours talks and his wise advice and just knowing that he was always there! I hope this counts as my mission for this month.

  2. I lost my dad 5 years ago so don’t have a dad to thank on Fathers Day. But his extraordinary example lives on through my brothers and I am fortunate to have married a good man like my dad. So on Fathers Day I thank the men in my family for their commitment and example to their children.
