Tell your dad you love him on Father's Day.

10 of 10/ Say 'I Love You' Out Loud

Tell him you love him. Say the words. I wish I could do these with my late dad. I really miss him on these special days. If your dad is still with you, please make the moments count.

If you didn’t enjoy a warm and loving relationship with your father, this is a great opportunity to determine that your own children will have memories of a dad who loved them and was part of their lives.
