Tribute to my Dad on Father’s Day

The following is a tribute written by one of my fifth grade students, Raquel, to her father who had died when she was a toddler. Even though her memories of him are fleeting she holds on. I hope you found that it touched you as it had me.

Dear Dad,

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part. GOD has you in his arms and I’ll have you in my HEART.

Even though I don’t have my Dad here with me, I have a father figure and his name is Gregory. He’s smart, generous and caring he’s one of several SUPER DADS ever. He deserves nothing less from me. I LOVE him just like my Dad.

Happy Father’s Day! To all you wonderful and caring fathers out there!

From: Raquel.
