Example #1 Dear Dad, There are few words to describe your awesomeness as a father, but I know I don't say this enough. As I grow older, I realize this more and more. My childhood was so happy because of you. Walking with you on a long summer night, driving to get ice cream in the summer, and spontaneous movie trips are some of my favorite memories. Even though I know I didn't appreciate it back then, I am grateful for all the hard work you did for us. Your help and support have meant the world to me, daddy. Without you in my life, I don't know what it would be like. I'll love you forever. Your Daughter
Example #2 Dear Dad, It is time for me to share something with you. It was a good decision. Almost everything you said was correct. As I grew up, I used to think you knew nothing, but as I get older, I realize how much wisdom you have, and I am so thankful for you sharing it with me. With the experiences I gained as a child, I know I can draw on them when I have my own family. Working hard, making sacrifices, and guiding your children along the right path have all demonstrated what it means to be a good parent. Dad, you've given me so much, and I will never be able to repay that debt. I promise that I will always make you as proud of me as you are of me. I love you, and I will strive to make you proud every day that I live. Love you, Your Son
