Anyone remembering and/or celebrating their dad tomorrow?
I am.....a stern man...full of `old time` beliefs and didn`t hesitate to act on them. Kept us in line only long enough to follow in his foot-steps.

Tho long gone, I love him to this day for instilling in me ...patience I ...guess. Or something or other that just doesn`t exist today.
If your fortunate enough to have your dad still with you, hug him! and let him know you care.*smile*

I don't have a dad any more, he is gone now. He was not a good dad, but I now remember his good
side, have let go of all the other 'stuff', and realize he went through his life without becoming the man
he wished he could be. He had some good father's days, and some not so good ones.

My husband has been a wonderful father to our four daughters, so they will all wish him a happy father's day tomorrow with much love.

My dad's no longer with us. He was a good dad, one of the best. I still miss him. He died in 1990, far too young, only 72, and there's still hardly a day goes by that I don't think of him and wish he were here to talk with. And I'll certainly be thinking of him on Father's Day, and raising a glass of his favourite tipple and mine, 12-year old single malt scotch, in his memory.

You can never adequately thank or repay good parents for all that they are and do, to you and for you and with you and sometimes in spite of you. Best you can do is try to do as well by your own children, pay it forward. And I like to think I have. My children are all grown and gone now, and I'm very pleased with the kind of people they've turned out to be. I think I can take some credit for that. They certainly give me some, and somehow that more than makes up for all the sleepless nights, all the anxiety and fear and worry that go along with raising children.

So if your dad is still around and deserves some credit for who you turned out to be, you better let him know. He needs to know, and he'll savour the memory of you telling him for his whole life.

My father has passed away but I will wish him a Happy Father's Day and I know he will hear me.

I love the song "Butterfly Kisses"...it reminds me a lot of my dad, especially when he was teaching me how to drive. I had been a passenger in a car that had been in a bad accident (just a few months prior to learning how to drive) and the police had said that I had missed being killed by about one inch. As a result, I was a very nervous driver but my dad was just so very, very patient with me.

I really miss him.

I have had the opportunity to work with many good, even great, musicians in my life but I can say my dad was one of the most brilliant musicians I have known or seen. He played fiddle. During his life he got to play with country music icons, legends, and just about everyone else. No matter who he played with, his versatility, imagination and skill made those around him better. He died in 2000. There isn't a day that goes by when I don't hum a tune of his in my head. Not just The tune, the tune the way he played it. The way it was meant to be played. Memories of his music, songs, sound, tone and vitality are his greatest gifts to me. I am truly privileged to have them. This father's day I'll pick up a guitar and play a few of those tunes with him.

Sort of reminds me of the song "Leader of the Band" by Dan Folgleberg. That tune is kind of a Father's day tune whenever I hear it.
