#1: Tell Your Dad How He’s Changed Your Life
“Dad, the older I get the more I understand how fortunate I am to have been raised by a man like you. You provided me with stability, acceptance, and unconditional love from an early age. I’m able to be the person I am because of the father you were. Happy Father’s Day to my hero.”
