My father has been gone for 25 years now (that doesn’t seem possible)! He died in 1994 after a two year fight with colon cancer. I still miss my daddy and always will. He was a great man, a gentle man, a caring soul, and just a great dad. Words could never express how much I loved that man or how much I miss him. I’ve written about him here and here, and in scattered other places across my blog. Today, more words just don’t feel adequate.
So here’s a few Father’s Day quotes I really like.
It’s only when you grow up and step back from him — or leave him for your own home — it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Margaret Truman
“A father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.” Unknown
“I am not ashamed to say that no man I ever met was my father’s equal, and I never loved any other man as much.” Hedy Lamarr
“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person: He believed in me.” Jim Valvano
“A father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.” Unknown
“The only thing better than having you for a husband is our children having you for a dad.” Unknown
“Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.” Ruth E. Renkel
“I think my mom put it best. She said, ‘Little girls soften their daddy’s hearts.'” Paul Walker
“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” Billy Graham
