All I know and what matters the most is that you're a good man-you never cheated on mom, you never spanked me, and you gave everything I wanted and needed. Happy Father's Day to all the great dads out there, especially my husband, Bill, and my father-in-law, Floyd.

Hayes: The best advice I can give a new dad is to continue to do the daily hard work of trying to become a better man and to love your children unconditionally through the process.

All fathers are invisible in daytime; daytime is ruled by mothers and fathers come out at night.

It wasn't until 1972 that Father's Day was officially recognized as a national holiday in America and many other nations followed the tradition.

He was the most excited, (and we're pretty sure the most emotional) after your mother gave birth to you.

My dad is my superhero, he inspires me in every way.

A father is his daughter's first love! It is nice to celebrate Father's Day or a Mother's Day and make our parents feel important and special. "You don't have to get me anything". Of course, nobody's offered me anything. Grace Golden Clayton was mourning the loss of her father, when in December 1907, the Monongah Mining Disaster in nearby Monongah killed 361 men, 250 of them fathers, leaving around a thousand fatherless children. I'd fly to Vegas and spend the weekend with him.

"The Ministry, on this occasion of Fathers Day, would like to appreciate all fathers for their tireless unsung efforts in nurturing, protecting and guiding their children, whether biological or not", a statement issued by the Minister, Madam Otiko Afisah Djaba, said.

Happy Father's Day! You are the best Daddy in this huge world. A dad loves to the best of his abilities.

"For this cause, they need to be appreciated and celebrated for all the sacrifices they make and the struggles they go through which they never talk about just to put smiles on the faces of their families". Every principles of him inspires me making him my superhero.

No matter what, you will always be my best friend!

Tell your dad that he has your heart is his hand. "It must be because they hope in their poor beaten souls that these new men, who are their blood, will do the things they were not strong enough nor wise enough nor fearless enough to do". Rafael took responsibility for his father's crimes when he knew it would wipe the slate clean for his own children, and he shows both of his exes the love and respect they deserve.

For one, dads aren't all away earning money; a study a few years ago found that two-parent families where just the father works make up just a fifth of families in the UK.

If your dad likes to eat, take him out to dinner or cook him something!

"Well, I love golf but, more so I love my grandson and just the comradery and, I think I speak for everybody in that" says Scott Knowles.
