“To my fellow dads who’ve watched their little ones grow into remarkable adults, we’ve certainly come a long way. Here’s to us and to the indelible imprints we’ve made on the hearts of our children.

“Today, while we revel in the joy of being fathers, I also want to extend my thoughts to those for whom this day might be tinged with longing. Missing a father is a reminder of the profound impact they had on our lives.

“Remember, the love and wisdom they bestowed never depart; it continues to live within us, guiding our steps and warming our hearts. They may be absent from our sight, but they’re forever present in our lives.

“From my greatest pride and joy to you, we wish everyone a happy Father’s Day. Here’s to the strength, love, and resilience of fathers everywhere!”
