My father is, without a doubt, one of the most patient men in the world. He is also caring, kind and intelligent. I have never known him to think of himself first in any situation. He is just a wonderful person who is admired by all who know him. Yet, he is humble enough to have no idea that people hold him in such high esteem. He is truly someone to emulate, and I do!

My dad has been my hero for 24 years. He is the heary and soul of the person I am today. My dad has bedn there every day to help me on the farm. Since I am going back to college and still working full time I know my horses will be taking care of because of his gentle heart and hard work. Everyday no matter rain or shine he is out therre helping me with hay and doing stalls, and cleaning the fields. My dad knows hard work, he has work 60 plus years in his life and not once ask for anything but my brother and I to be taken care of. He has been faithful to my mom for over 45 years and today i still know what true love is about. Over the past year my memaw has passed away and my pepaw has been grieving. My dad everyday goes over there for over 3 hours to spe"d some time and give him company. My dad does this with his kind heart and never ask for nothing. My pepaw is on my moms side so I know family comes first to him. My dad is my role mocel and my hero has been and will forever be my number one person.

After retiring, my Dad has spent more than 20 years volunteering at an elementary school; what an inspiration!

My father passed away in 1981, but he taught me that I could do anything that I put my m ind to, I never had to ride a bad horse, because he always trained the good ones and he said that if you did not have anything good to say, do not say anything.

My day is the greatest dad anyone could ask for he has been married to my mom for 25 years but for the last 8 years they have been separated but still living in the same house. They have been doing this so that me and my bother didn't have to be split from one of them. This is what makes my dad very special always thinking for others and not for himself.

A fellow trail rider asked my dad "why do you bring your kids with you?"
Dad replied "they are not just my kids they are my friends!"
Us three girls were young adults at the time. My sisters and I are very blessed to have our dad. He has even influenced other kids over the years whose fathers were not being a "dad".

My dad means the world to me. He is very special and has been by my side in helping me the young gentleman I have become. He continues in supporting me in my rodeos. My dad has been such a great teacher he has taught me how to ride a horse and how to rope. He continues to be the best coach for my success at the new Mexico junior highs. With out his support, teaching, and coaching I would have never made the trip to the nationals junior high rodeo in team roping.


My Dad has always supported my passion/love of horses since I first began begging for a pony when I was five. He got me my first pony, Candy, who I rode until I spotted a Bay Quarter Horse/Morgan cross barrel horse at the horse sale I was attending with my girlfriend. When I got home, I begged him to please come a just look at her. It took me two hours to convince him, but he finally gave in. They had just started bidding on her by the time we got back to the sale, and he bid for her without getting to check her out first, trusting my judgement. Needless to say, Babe came home with us, and I was the happiest kid alive!

After growing up, marrying a sailor, I was not able to have horses due to always moving with the Navy. After 30 years of having no horses, and being on my own once again, the opportunity came to purchase a small farm, and there was Dad once again. He helped me purchase a beautiful Quarter Horse mare in foal, and I now have a beautiful sorrel mare, Gypsy, and a black mare, Dusty. They are my life, as I have fibromyalgia, and on the days when the pain is at its worst, I go out and spend time with my girls and the pain isn't so bad.

My Dad has always been there for me in so many ways, but his understanding of my passion for horses has meant the world to me. I love you, Dad!

A father is a unique person who is responsible to properly raise his children, love his wife and provide for all the family everything that they need. It is not an easy job when he also has to go out every day to work so that he is able to afford all of the needs. Most times this is not appreciate but only when he passes away is when we realise what he meant for everyone. My dad passed away two years ago and to this date i think of him every day. Love you dad.


unfortunately my dad passed away when i was young, but while he was alive he was the best dad ever. We had so much fun together, never really argued and were best of friends. I wish he could see me know all grown up with kids on my own. he means the world to me.
Happy Father's day

My Dad has kept all the sorrow, inside, since my mother passed away March 3, 2011. Nothing any family member can say or due much for him. He has taken down all the pictures of my mother in the house. and has been recluse. Dad has never said a word to us, he went out to the grave site, and took Kentucky Blue Grass seed on moms grave a unique way to distinguish Mom from the rest. My Dad. Roger Budzinski now lives in the Big empty house. the house my family grew up in.he has become so depressed, and misses my mother so much. Not many things make him feel better, If, he is selected as a winner, I am sure it might put a great gift for him, with a new pair of boots he might come out to our farm,to visit. Last October the entire family comes out to celebrate my birthday, my mom had her wig on and said to me : this is the last time I will be on the farm.: Mom was right.Dad cared for her through the months that he took care of her at home, and the horrible months mom suffered,taking care of all her needs until Hospice took over. My dad is the winner in our family no matter what comes along.Such a strong man. with a broken heart.We cant do anything for him,to console him.My dad is a winner no mater what

Well My dad is a normal good dad honestly can't give any great amazing story bout him to be honest. He is jus Dad.

My father moved the family of six from West Virginia to a two bedroom house in Florida. Only having a third grade education he provided for us the best he could. He was basically a jack of all trades and taught himself to read and write. Through the years he developed health issues, but the family never went without. I am so thankful he moved us from a life with very few opportunities to giving us so much more. If it weren't for him there is no telling what would have become of me and my own family. He passed away in 1997 from his health problems. But not a day goes by that I do not think of him and how fortunate I am that he had the insight to give his family more than he ever had.

Laura Harmon

My dad is the greatest father in the world because he cares for everyone that he meets. He is always willing to help someone out even if it means that he will have to cancel his own plans. Not only is he there for everyone else but he is also always there for me. In fifth grade I became scared to death to go to school. Everyday either him or my mom would take me to school and sit with me until finally I was able to go on my own. He is also always willing to help me with my animals. He is truly the best man in the world. Hope you have a great Father's Day dad and I love you.

My father passed on to a better life 10 years ago after developing lung cancer from the cigarettes he smoked back in the Navy. He never once complained of pain. He taught me about courage and the ability to accomplish my goals. He joined the Navy in his senior year of high school, right after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. He served 3 years and when he came back home, he went back to high school and graduated. Guys back then did not go back to school. He worked most of his life as a mechanic and I was his helper (learning all about the mechanics of a car). Thanks to him, I can do most of the repair work on my own car. His girlfriend back in high school became pregnant and went away to relatives to have the baby. She never told him and he died not knowing he had a son. The son was adopted by his great aunt and uncle. After their passing, he found out he was adopted and his real mother told him about his father. A few years later, he found me. The brother I did not know about, looks like my father, talks like my father, and has many likes and dislikes as our father. It seems as I now have a clone version of my father. He is a farrier and I now have the horse I always wanted. My father was an animal lover and always had a dog. He would have been very pleased to see and know his son.

My father is responsible for my kind soul. He taught me to treat people right just by being himself.

My dad sold our house in a subdivision and bought an 80 acre farm so we can have horses. And he's not much of a horse person! He has worked hard on the farm, sprucing up the old barn, running fence, clearing brush, not to mention all the work with the horses. There's much more to do! He's planning a beautiful new barn, running miles of fence, and building a new house. SO why do all this if you aren't into horses??? He did it all for me.

I was so blessed to have a father that had a passion for horses. I cant count how many horseshows that my Dad hauled us to after a long day or week at work. Most importantly along with all the fun and quality time with my father I learned responsibility, how to win, how to lose, and how to pull up my boot straps and carry on with all of life's lessons that I would have to face in the future. How blessed I have been. Thanks Dad


My dad showed me how to be a man. Taught me to be a citizen and appreciate the cost of living in this country.
