Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
“Never drop your golf bag on the back of the tee in the middle of your father’s back swing.” - Mark
“You can pretty much fix anything with duct tape and baling twine.” Dad’s been gone a year now, and if I could add another life lesson to the list, it would be to teach your children lessons they will use in their day-to-day lives- they’ll cherish them forever. - Lynn
My dad taught me three things about life: it’s not fair, it requires hard work, and no matter how busy it gets, always make time for the occasional ice cream cone. - Ashley
“Be curious, be adventurous and always remember that family comes first.” My dad also loves to end phone calls with his favorite line, “Do the Right Thing.” - Mo
The best lesson… keep your eye on the ball. Thanks, Dad! - Dave B
When I was in distress over deer and other fuzzy animals along the side of the road, my dad would tell me, “Don’t worry, they’re just sleeping.” Thanks for always looking out for me and protecting my sunny view of the world for as long as you could! - Caitlin
Don’t be afraid to find a way to do what you love, even if others may find it foolish. - Chris
Be sure you carve time out for your family, no matter how busy you are. My dad always made time to coach and practice with me no matter what the sport. - Sharon
“Follow your heart, wherever it takes you.” - Dave M.
