    I don't have any memories with my dad since he wasn't around when I was growing up but I would like to wish all the dad's in the community a Happy Father's Day!

    My dad passed away 7 years ago, but he was a strong and loving father. He never let anyone hurt or say anything around us that was hurtful. He always talked proudly of his daughters and in turn we speak proudly of him.

    To my hero,missing you always, dad πŸ’–πŸ’–

    😱 another beautiful badge !!

    In Spain, Father's Day is celebrated on March 19. Formerly it was a national holiday, but in 1979 it ceased to be a national holiday and is only a holiday in some autonomous communities. I can't speak much about my father, sadly not all fathers in the world are good. But I can talk about my grandfather.

    He took me to the movies for the first time, I must have been 5 or 6 years old. In the cinema we saw Peter Pan and then Grease

    I remember that my father did not expected presents, flowers or anything else on father's day!

    A good word was the best!

    Actually he did not know that there is a father's day, for many years!

    On the other hand, he knew very well the mother's day and he always was telling my sister and me, not to forget bring flowers to our mother!!

    I only have good memories of my dad, he has always been there for me and my 4 siblings, I am the second eldest and there is 20 years between me and my youngest brother, my mum never had to work and dad did shift work at a printers. He always took my older brother and I to the shop on a Sunday and bought us chocolate as a treat. He is a quite, clever and artistic man and family means everything to him, he cared for my mum when she developed Motor Neurone disease until she passed away, which is why at 89 it is so sad that he is going through what he is at the moment as yesterday he had to go into care after 6 months of my brother trying to care for him at home and several emergency hospital stays because of falls, sadly he developed dementia recently and it has got so bad he doesn’t really know us. I shan’t be able to see him tomorrow which is our Father’s Day in the UK because he has to isolate for 2 weeks before he can have the run of the care home and mix with anyone. Of course he will be in my thoughts everyday as we have been in his. I love him and thank him for the most wonderful childhood ever that was always filled with love πŸ’•

    I was blessed to have my daddy he was my hero my best friend he was there for any and everything even though im not biologically his my real dad was on drugs in and out of prison making choices that weren't the greatest but he chose the best decision to give me n my sister to his brother who raised us as his own children and loved us unconditionally. I always wondered why he didn't want us and would give us away because when he was sober n doing right he was amazing with us i actually never knew about the bad parts of his life he always kept that away from me and my sister until the day i had kids of my own then I realized that as a parent you sometimes have to make choices not because its whats right for you but its whats right for your children. So I now look back amd think how lucky I was too be loved by 2 incredible fathers but growing up i was so angry and closed off that i lost years with them both that i will never get back. June 6 2016 my daddy that raised me passed from stage 4 bladder cancer then February 2017 my grandpa their dad passed away and October 3 2017 my cousin brutally murdered my real dad with a tire iron so my advice is cherish every moment of every day with those who mean the most to you and if your dad is still here hug him longer stay a little longer talk about everything cause in a little over a year i lost the most influential men of my life and my heart still hurts but i know i was loved by 2 of the greatest men I will ever know or love. Forgive often and love more and to every father there is and every father that they didn't have to be Happy Father's Day and to my dad's i loved you then i love you still always have always will and thank you for showing me what real love feels like

    My father died last October of 2000. I always remember him as the best PAPA in the world. I was his fave little girl. I wrote a poem for him that i wanna share:


    You took care of me in your own special way. You brought me up, the girl you wanted me to be.

    I journeyed through life with your guarding love. I struggled and fell, you always lifted me up.

    Your.comforting presence and soothing words, are imbued within me, memories are so warm.

    Now that you're gone to see me through. But your love made me stronger. My papa, how i am missing you .

    Well.. my family is split in two different states and we always have to travel back and forth, but ive never for a second felt the absence of both parents as they tried to do their best for us. My best memory of my dad is when he taught me how to ride a bike then when i fell he went and treated me to some junkπŸ˜‚.. nice times those..

    My father passed away many years ago but he was a character Lol, and I mean that in a good way !! πŸ˜€

    One funny story I remember is one night he thought he heard something. He got up walked thru the house, checking on everyone but noticed the door closed to the bathroom. Well to make a long story short - he shot the toilet bowl. Well mom was sure mad and she did not say a word. That is how we could tell she was mad. Lol 🀐 πŸ˜ƒ

    He was a good man
