11: Dad, One of my favorite memories of you and I are all of the summer’s we spent together while you supported me in all of my sports. We spent many hours driving to tournaments and practices, and though it may not seem much, but that time we had together meant so much. You were ALWAYS there for me, to support me, to be my biggest fan. I always appreciated that no matter what, you made the time to be there behind home plate rooting for me. I know it took a lot of sacrifice to make my softball dreams come true. I know it did not come cheap financially and time wise. But you made it possible for me to have the best gear, the best mitt, and play for the best team. Now that I am a parent I appreciate and understand the sacrifices you made for me so much more. I firmly believe you are the reason why I became the player I was, you believed in me. You helped me get my rear into gear when it came to putting together my recruiting video, sending out letters to colleges, and ultimately made my dream to play in college happen. The time we spent in Hawaii getting set up in my dorm, I still remember it all. You were so patient with me, and made sure that I had everything I needed when I first was to strike out on my own 3000 miles away. I could tell you were just as excited as I was, and that meant a lot. You wanted to see where I was to live, play, eat, and be a beach bum. When you left and I was on my own, I broke down. I didn’t have my rock to lean on anymore, and honestly, that was the beginning of the biggest change in my life. I was on my own for the first time. You are an amazing Father, a great mentor, a loving Grandpa; I just adore you to the end of the world. I know we have been through a lot, but you have a very special place in my heart. I will always be a “Daddy’s Girl.” I hope you have a wonderful Father’s Day filled with love and appreciation, because you, you deserve every single ounce of it, Dad. I love you so much. Love, Katie-Did P.S. Remember whenever I was in trouble all I had to do was wiggle my ears to make you laugh? | Dad, One of my favorite memories of you and I are all of the summer’s we spent together while you supported me in all of my sports.

12: Bill- You one of the best men I have ever known. All of us girls are so lucky to have you in our lives. You fill that void that our own father has left. Thank you, for being so selfless and loving all of us as your own. The role you play in our lives and our children’s, means more than you could ever know. One of my best memories of you is when we all met up in Utah for Thanksgiving weekend. I went over to my condo to start moving back in and it was in terrible condition. I felt completely overwhelmed and stressed, knowing that victor was going back to Georgia the next day. So instead of carrying out any plans that you and the family might have had for the weekend you all came over to help me clean. You made a list of cleaning supplies and went to the store and got everything we needed. When you got back you insisted on paying for a U-Haul truck and dedicated your entire day to help me and the boys get completely moved and settled before you went back home. It meant so much to me. Other special memories I will always have are the two beautiful baby blessings that you gave Damon and Skyler. Of course it would have been ideal for their father to be able to give them, but I am truly blessed to have such an amazingly spiritual priesthood leader in my life. The other memories that I have are nothing completely specific, just memories of your continued generosity and thoughtfulness. Meals paid for, thoughtful gifts, borrowed money and of course all the many times you let us crash at your house (even though I’m sure it drove you crazy!) I love you and hope you have a wonderful Fathers Day! Love, Dallys

13: Billiam- You have truly been a true blessing to our family. I know we havent always seen "eye-to-eye" on things in the past but as I have grown up I have realized how extremely lucky we are to have you in our life. As you know, we weren't blessed with a father who we can look up to, depend on, or even expect acknowledgments from on the major (or minor) occasions in our lives. Because of you, the emptiness in our hearts , left by our "father", has been bearable. You have treated us like your own and given us the father that we have always hoped for and on top of all you have loved and cared for the one person in the world who has always loved and cared for us, our sweet mother,and for that we will always be grateful . Thank you for going above and beyond the call of "step-father" and "Being the dad you didn't have to be". I love you ! Love Kass

14: Billiam, You entering our lives was a huge sudden change that none of us could have anticipated 7 years ago but it is one that has affected our present and future for the better. You stepped into our family in a much needed to be filled spot. From taking me on my very first date and raising the standards for future young men, to simply bringing the priesthood into our house and giving me that constant support system I am truly grateful for that. You’ve been the dad you didn’t have to be and that has definitely made a lasting impact on my life. Even if that includes forever finding ways to embarrass me! I hope you have a great father’s day and feel just how loved and appreciated you are!! Taking on a family full of crazy girls was a brave step you took and on this day we celebrate that! Love you Billiam! Love, Kaycie

15: Billliam- We have had some fun times together Billiam. The most memorable, I would say, is when I almost lit your plant on fire from my blue dart! That was the funniest, funnest and scariest thing I have ever experienced!! Thank you for introducing them to me. Another memory is when we were driving back to Dallys’ house from the beach in Texas. Dallys was driving right next to us and you told me to moon her. I honestly surprised myself when I rolled the window down as well as my pants. I’m pretty sure everyone was just as shocked! You have taught me many things. You’ve taught me about blue darts, how to imitate a zit using whipped cream, and how to play train. Those are just a few things out of many that come to mind. But I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to have you in my life. I know I can turn to you for help and that you are always there for me. You are so good to me and I am so grateful for that. Love, Ravyn | "I'm not afraid to go back to prison!"

16: "Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.” - Anne Geddes

18: One hundred years from now It won't matter What kind of car I drove What kind of house I lived in How much money I had in the bank Nor what my cloths looked like BUT The world may be a little better Because, I was important In the life of a child.

19: Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, singers of songs.
