Happy Father's Day to the most amazing father I could ever ask for! Thank you for being such a role model, and such a loving, funny, and understanding dad. Love you! Mika
My dad is honestly one of my favorite people. He's kind, wise, loving, hilarious and extremely dedicated to his work, life and family. Some girls can't say that they tell their dad everything that goes on in their lives but for me that's not the case. I always feel welcome to tell my dad anything whether it's good or bad and he always is accepting of what I have to say. He is one of my biggest motivations to succeed in whatever I'm doing whether it's school or extracurricular activities I know it is achievable because I have my dad by my side to cheer me on. So if you're reading this dad know that I love you immensely and that I wish you a truly Happy Father's Day. With love, Sarah
