Happy Father's Day!
I dedicate this week’s Community Corner to Dads. Those incredible men that show up, love and protect their kids and really are the unsung heroes of many families. Who gets Dad flowers or breakfast in bed? All the real sweetness is reserved for Mom. However, in the words of Keith Urban " “The older I get the more I can see how much he loved my mother and my brother and me and he did the best that he could and I only hope when I have my own family that everyday I see a little more of my father in me.” So Dads, here’s a shout out from just a few of your terrific ‘kids’ to their heroes!
Cyndi Bera to Rick Stewart~
"My Dad is the coolest, most amazing, hilarious, multi-hat wearing Dad ever. He wears his “boss-hat” encouraging me to work hard, be motivated, teaching me how to support myself and be independent, and the next minute he is wearing his “Dad-hat” helping me become a better person, teaching me how to be a great parent, or how to handle tough situations. And then he wears his goofy hat… literally. Sometimes in the form of bunny ears, most recently, rainbow puffs. I can always count on my Dad to make me laugh, be my wisest teacher, have excellent taste in music, and trip me in Costco when I’m not looking. Love you Dad”
Savannah Gilly to John Gilly~
“I smile because you’re my father, I laugh because there’s nothing you can do about it. Thank you for always standing by my side. I love you more than you will ever know.”
Carson Barber to Richard Barber~
“I wanted to thank my father for being an outstanding role model & let him know how proud of him for the way he raised me. Love you Pop”
Reid Mullins to Bruce Mullins~
“I would like to say Happy Father’s Day to the man that raised me and my sister by himself. Thank you Bruce Mullins, love you”
Jessica and Melissa Eid to Todd Eid~
"Our dad is the hardest working, most loyal and dedicated man we know. Dad, thank you for being such a good role model who is loved and respected not only by us, but by so many people in our community. It is because of your love and support that we will achieve so many things in life. We love you!"
Kailie Shoemaker to Jon Mossinger~
"To my dad, who has always been there for me. Growing up, you showed me how to work hard, but also how to slow down and dip your toes in the water. How to laugh at everything, especially yourself. A love for anything involving food ! How to always find my way home and never admit to being lost, because I'm only taking the scenic route ;) And thank you for always dusting me off and telling me to try again when I make mistakes. Love you so much!”
Happy Father’s Day to all those Hometown Heroes out there from all of us at Susanville Super!
