Tell us about Dad and WIN

With Father's Day right around the corner, we thought it would be fun to take a moment and reflect on those influential dads in our lives. Fathers, grandfathers, uncles and brothers -- what a nice time to honor these relationships.

We dusted off a few personal photos of our own dads.

    My father was one of those Dads that could do it all. He was born in 1913 and lived through both WW's plus the Korean War and Viet Nam. He also survived the Great Depression so he knew what it meant to be poor, but that didn't take away from him being a terrific father. He provided for his family with love and understanding until the day he died in 2002 at he age of 89. I have some wonderful memories of him and those will be with me for the rest of my life. I still miss him.

    I was only 8 when my 36 year old father died. Knowing his time here was near, he summoned me to his bedside where he told me he wished he could live to see me be Miss America, and that one day He would go to sleep here and wake up in Heaven and that I would see him there one day. As an adult and now mother, I realize how much courage it took to have that conversation. I am so thankful he made the effort as his words help to sculpt who I would become. First, 13 years after his death, I did compete in the Miss America pageant where I blew a kiss form my dad. Second, he showed me that dying is a part of the living process, and I went on to be a hospice social worker . Finally and most importantly, he gave me a glimpse of heaven and taught me to trust God with his death and my life. So many gifts received during a very difficult time...My fathers dying words helped me navigate life without him there.

    My dad passed away three years ago. He was so friendly and outgoing and he never met a stranger. If he did meet a stranger, we always joked that he only needed 15 minutes and then he would know their life story. He had a passion for bluegrass music and played the fiddle for as long as I can remember. Perhaps his greatest joy was his grandchildren. Oh, how he loved being around my kids and he would get such a kick out of everything they did - even their naughty antics. We all miss him so much!

    My dad was a baker so he kept odd hours, working from 3 to noon and sleeping in 2 shifts , 10 to 2 and 1 to 5, so he could spend evenings with his family. We of course always had fresh baked goods which made our house popular with the kids in the neighborhood but our house was also the place to come after dinner in the summer because my dad would often play baseball with us. At the holidays the whole family would help out at the bakery making cookies. I am a very good baker thanks to my dad. He also imparted to me honesty, integrity, being frugal financially and love of family. I always felt loved and secure and was a daddy's girl.

    My father, my teacher lived till the age of 93. He left behind his legacy of 10 children, 14 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. He left the comforts of his home in Nicaragua at the age of 13 to find adventure and travel. He was self taught in many arenas and enjoyed life to its fullest. He settled in NY, the melting pot at that time, married my mother and joined the American Navy. He gave us the example of working hard, living within your means and forever learning what life has to give each of us. Providing for such a large family was not easy and each one of us had roles to play in the dynamics of family life. We learned that family is important and to love each other no matter what circumstances exist. He showed us how to give to the less fortunate and take nothing for granted. For that I am thankful and grateful for being a part of my dad's life.

    My father was an alcholic. I remember growing up with that secret. He wasn't a mean drunk. He didn't beat us or verbally abuse us. He just was absent during those times. Holiday's seemed hardest on my father for all the loss that had struck his life he would disaper about time for holiday mass and we would sometimes have to go pick him up at his favorite bar in the evening. I didn't hate him. He was our leader, our protector, our disaplinarion. He got up everyday at 5am to drink coffee before heading out to work to suport his 9 children and wife. Everyday. My dad was a cabnit maker. He worked with his hands all his life. That i know of he never worked drunk since he retired with all his fingers. My mother died after 51 years of marrioage i was 26. My father changed. We got to know each other before he followed her a year later. He was smart, funny and only seemed to remember the good times. My father taught me to forgive. To let things go. To love more.
