(actual note(s) from student(s))

Dear Daddy, Happy Fathers’ day! Hope you enjoy your gifts because I enjoyed picking them out for you. How are Grandma Parker and Grandma Miller. How is princess! How big is she! I got the tea you sent me and I used your recipe for iced tea it’s really good. I have iced tea every morning  because it’s way too hot for coffee. Do they have Arizona’s in South Carolina? It’s almost like pre-made iced tea. One of the moms friend came over and remodeled the house. I cant wait till you see it. Love, Imany

Dear Father, Thank you. Thank you for everything you have done while you were with us. Today is Fathers day and to be honest I am not crying like the rest of the family. In fact, I am not sad at all. This is the first Fathers day without you and of course I miss you but I know that you are in a much better place so I am not sad. Although, the past year has been the toughest year the family has ever experienced. I wish you were here to help us out because right now everything is a mess. Hopefully it will get better soon. We are all praying for you and all are wishing you were here right now. But don’t worry about us; we will get through it. We all love you and miss you. Happy Fathers day.  Love, Billal 16

Dear Dad, Happy Fathers day dad. I can’t say much, because our relationship isn’t as strong as it should be. But I do appreciate what you’ve done over the years. Maybe as I grow older I can improve our relationship. So Happy Fathers day hope you enjoy it.

Dear Father, I remember you saying that fathers day should be just another day. I remember you said that the Fathers day is the saddest day in the world for so many children without someone to call dad. I guess I fall into that group now, a group of kids without dads, and that this would be saddest day of the year for me, and in some ways I guess it is, and in other it is a happy day, because I can reflect on what a wonderful father I had, and still have. Only now in my heart rather than by my side. You are the most loving, intelligent, wise father I could ask for. I wish you were still with me physically, but you have given me enough strength and love to live peacefully even without your physical presence. I want to thank you for that. Thank you. In the car rides, the long conversations, the trips and all the smiles. I love you, and I hope you are having a peaceful, wonderful father’s day today. Love, TA 17

Dear dad, Happy father’s day! I kind of already said everything yesterday in my card. There isn’t anyone that could raise a crazy clan of lads like us. I really do appreciate you always supporting my dreams despite how crazy they can be, and I will always be thankful for the countless lessons you have taught me that will follow me forever. Thanks so much for everything. Love ya, SL 15

Dear Dad,Happy Fathers Day! You’re such a good person! I’m so glad you’re my dad because you’re very calm and understanding. You do so much and never get credit for it. I cannot thank you enough for all you do. Thank You so much. Happy Fathers day. Love,M

Dear Dad,How’s life down there big guy anything shaking down there. I’m so glad you’re my dad. You’re the best dad in the world. I hope you are having more fun than I am having because I am bored like crazy. Teech is making me write this card for you. I love you so much. You are more fun than chucky cheese  except you have better teeth.OS

Dear Father, Thank you for everything you have done for me. You shaped me into the person I am today.  I am a responsible human being because of you. You gave me everything I wanted and more. I will never stop loving you. I hope you will never stop loving me. From, YH

Dear Dad, Happy Fathers Day. Thank you for everything you have done. I really appreciate what you do for me. You work so hard and do so much for us. You’re always trying to make us do good in school so we can have a better future. You always respect people and try to get on their good side. You are very strong and you know how to stand up for yourself and us. You’re always there for us no matter what. Thank you once again and I love you. -A

Dear Dad, Fathers Day! Today I became a Muslim and I wish you were here to see this with your own eyes. I heard that you are doing better and getting closer to getting out of the hospital. I’m very thankful that you are getting healthy and i can’t wait to see you again. I think that if you and I are given a chance to reunite, I will make the most out of it. My first assignment is to write a letter to you and I feel like I can write a book with things to say. My words will never be enough to express how I feel about you. For the past few weeks I’ve been reading and last night I made my decision to convert to Islam. When I came I was welcome and I felt that I was home. I was told that I am a new person now and that I have to be clean. I’m very thankful and humble for a new life. AP 25

Dear Father, Thank you for providing for me the past 16 years. I appreciate everything you have done for me. I Love you!

Dear Father, Happy Fathers Day! Thank you so much for all you do for me. I love you so much. I don’t know what I would do without you. You have taught me so much over the years and I know I take it for granted a lot of time. I may get mad at you sometimes but you will always mean the world to me. HEM 14

Dear Dad, First off, Thank you for everything you have done for me. I might not look like you but I want to act like you. You have an amazing sense of humor that I have inherited. You worked your butt for me to have a great future. I know we disagree on many things but I still love you.

Dear father,Thank you for everything you have done in my life, from making sure I got to every soccer game as a little kid to making sure I was able to go to college even when we didn’t have all the resources to make it easy to go my first choice college. Thank you for never giving up on me even at times when I have been stubborn or hard to deal with. I am so grateful to have a father who cares a lot about everything that goes on in my life and wants better for me than you do for yourself. I hope someday I will be able to repay you somehow for all you have done, are doing, and will do in the future to help me become the person that I am today. I don’t know where I would be today without you. Thank you for working hard day and night to make sure our family is always in good hands. Thank you for always taking the time to make your presence in my life very apparent even when i’m away from you months at a time, you were always there for me. Thank you for everything you do for me. I love you. E 18

Dear father,

I appreciate everything you have done to raise me up to this point in my life. I’m at a critical stage of my teenage years where I can easily go astray and make wrong decisions, and at some points I have. Sometimes, to a point at which I am doubtful of any hope but now matter what wrong I seem to do you always cheer me up. I guess when you told me to think of you more as a friend than a father, I shouldn’t have let it go through one ear and out the other. I know I say that now but I bet the next thing you tell me I will do the same but you’re always there to reiterate advice. So in the end I don’t realize the importance of your words but it is nice to know that someone cares. You lost your father at age 13, now I’m 17, so I have no right to complain about the little time I have to see you. Happy Baba Yom! Love, A 17
