Fathers Day Quotes from Students

Happy Fathers Day Dad! I wish I could be there to give you the biggest hug and tell you what a great dad you’ve been. All of the times you have given me advice and talked to me about life have truly helped me while travelling in India and really all aspects of my life. I hope you had an amazing fathers day, I can’t wait to see you, Mom, Chris, Nala, and Coco! – Vicky


Papa Lama! I hope that you have the happiest fathers day ever! Thank you so much for everything that you have done for me and for always being there for me no matter what. I wish that I could be home right now with you but since I am in India, I am sending my love from afar. Love you and miss you! xoxo Dechen

Dad, I’m sorry I couldn’t be with you to celebrate Fathers’ Day, but I am so thankful that you let me come on this amazing trip. Thank you so much for everything you do for me; I can’t imagine my life and all the opportunities I have without you. I’m so excited to spend time with you this summer. See you in a couple weeks!

Love, Will

Dear Dad,

Happy late Father’s Day! I’m so sorry that I wasn’t able to be with you but know how much I appreciate and love you. From day one you have been here to support, encourage, and shape me into the person I am today. I love you so much and I can’t wait to see you when I get home!




Dear D.O.D.

Happy father’s Day! I was sad that I was unable to be with you to celebrate! Perhaps because I missed out on one of Maria’s decadent desserts, but none the less, one that I would have eaten in celebration of you! You’re the best dad out there! Miss everyone lots!


Love you!



Happy late birthday dad! I hope you had a wonderful day full of coffee! I miss you and I wish you and mom could be here too. I hope you both (and Magic) are doing well. See you soon!

Hi Dad! [and mom and sister and anyone else reading this, hi strangers! (: ]

The rest is in Spanish :

Feliz dia de padres, perdonamé porque no pude llamar, pero espero que tu dia fue bonito. Te quiero mucho, dale comida a Beau por favor. No se que comprarles, espero que te gusten lo que voy a llevar.
