    Father's Day will be here June 19th. Whether it was your father, step-dad, grandfather, uncle, husband, or brother who is a father in your life, say something special about them. :D:heart:

    Despite the negative influence my dad had /has over me, my dad gave up a lot for me....i saw the value of having both parents around, to work hard, & to think less of yourselves for ya kids....with what was there my dad provided a positive environment

    :heart: Dad :)

    My dad built the base to make me all that I am today and shall become in the future.
    For that I will always be grateful and in his debt ...

    Peace to all of those without Fathers who strive to be a good one without example.

    I'll never forget the time my dad spent talking, exchanging thoughts and stories with us. The times we spent on family outings and cookouts. There are so many things i will never forget about you. Even though you have passed on, i feel ur presence in every day.

    I'll love you always!:heart:

    My biological dad and I met when I was 18 yrs old. Five years later he passed on at age 49. During this short period, I made it a habit to be in his company as much as possible. I had a chance to see his honesty, intelligence, character and integrity. The memories will last forever.

    I have had 2 throughout my life and they both came at the designated time!
    I Love both with all my heart for caring for my mother in an awesome way, as I do today! They taught me how to appreciate, the simplicities of life, how to strive to be the best daughter and how much a Real Man can Love a Woman!
    One is with me now and the other has passed! I wouldn't trade them for the world:)

    I Miss U So
    Clean the closest
    Clean the drawers
    Clean My head of judgement
    I miss U so
    Learn about your unconditional love that I needed to learn
    Learn when we went wrong or right
    Learn how to meditate
    I miss U so
    Give My love back to You
    Give my lose of vengeance over to the wrong
    Give You the props You deserve
    I miss U so
    You’re a Man of the world
    You’re just as human as I
    You’re God is My God
    I miss U so
    Look at my ancestor’s catalog of past lives
    Look and learn the strength in My blood
    Look while I realize
    I miss U so
