“A father is a friend we can always rely on. In times of need, when all else fails, we remember the one on whose knees we sat as children, and who soothed our sorrows ; and even if He is unable to help us, His mere presence serves to comfort and strengthen us.” – Emile Gaboriau

The big day this year falls on Sunday, June 19th and while that may still seem far away, it will be upon us before you know it. Appreciate your father for his big and brave heart this Father’s Day. He taught you to be broad minded, to dream, to think, not to get bogged down in the little things in life. He showed you the importance of being friends and always being honest. With him and your mother’s guidance, you grew up with the values that he taught you. This Father’s Day, celebrate the spirit of fatherhood and show your gratitude in the following ways:
