I could not honestly ask for a better dad! He, Chris Parker, has been through a lot when it came to his and my mom's divorce, me moving to a different state because my mom did not want him to be in my life, and many other things and he still keeps his head held high. I was going down a dark path for awhile in a bad relationship, but he never stopped being there for me when everyone else stopped. When I decided to get smart and end the relationship, he and my stepmom decided that I deserve another shot in life. I moved back down here in August with their help fully. He got me back in college and is the reason I am making straight As and Bs for the first time in my life. He never gave up on me and saw my true potential even though I could not see it for myself. He pushes me to do the best that I can do and helps me to believe in myself. I just don't think I could ever thank him enough for being such a wonderful, loving, warm hearted dad.
My dad, Jimmy Arender, is totally awesome. He and my mom got a divorce when I was only 13. He took care of my sisters and I. He made sure that everyday we goy up for school, and he had our lunches packed for us. Most importantly though he made sure we were at church every Sunday and Wednesday night. He made sure that if their was a youth church trip we went on it. He has always made sure we had what we needed
before he got what be needed. Now that I have my own family my dad is a grandpa and he still makes sure that my kids and I have what we need. My dad is the sweetest man I know and will do anything for anybody in need. He puts others needs before his needs. He is the best dad a daughter could ask for.

Awesome is a great word to describe Dan Ogletree, my dad. He
is one of 13 siblings (8) boys and (5) girls 12 siblings living. He is named after his father Daniel Ogletree (deceased) my dad loves family, he is always taking care of the home place, checking on his siblings (which some are ailing).
He retired from the State of MS Dept of Vocational Rehab and since his
retirement he has not stopped - he's constantly going here, there wherever he's called to help someone repair a machine (vending), washer, dryer whatever is needed and he is there. Every year he keeps saying I'm not gonna have such a "big" garden this year - and when you pull up in his drivewayfirst thing you see is all the rows tilled up and ready for planting, and it never gets smaller.
A heart of gold for giving is a great way to describe him, he
works day in and day out in the garden doing what he loves, to keep very little for himself but to make sure his siblings and friends get plenty of fresh vegetables each year. My Dad is the father of 2, myself and a son (my brother) we are both very lucky to live all in the tri-county area and close enough to spend time with him, whether it be a shrimp boil or just an afternoon of fishing on his pond - his daily routine is feeding the fish.
On May 7, 2012 he became a Great Grandpa and has so much love for Kamdyn at his age of 73 he would love to spend quality time with him introducing him to the outdoors which my Dad loves dearly. My Dad never meets a stranger, he is such a caring people person and it shows the moment you meet him. He has a passion for
hunting and spending time on his land in South Rankin County that he
plants each year as well as spending time on the Big Black at his deer camp where he has many friends and most have hunted together over the past 30 years or longer.
I would love for my Dad to be apart of your contest. Thanks for such
an honor to all the Dads. Happy Fathers Day to all!!
My step dad has been a second father to me for about ten years. He was there supporting me through first dates, high school, sports, my decisions, and now with my son. He has five kids of his own, but he was special and didn't mind adding me to the bunch. He is loving, caring, supportive, and a hard working man. Even though he works from 4:30am to 5:30pm, he still comes home and helps me with my son and any other task I need help with. He is an amazing role model, and an AWESOME DAD!
Growing up with my dad always seemed impossible. He always worked and never seemed to be around and when he was, he was always solemn and very strict. For the longest time I thought I hated him. Every way my father told me not to go, I made SURE to go. I even moved out for a year after high school just to get away. Well it took me twenty years and a kick in the pants by the real world, but I finally realized that my dad is one of the most hard working, loving men I know. He works seven days a week, from early morning to most times past midnight, because he is going to make sure his family is fed and has a roof over their head. And you know what? He doesn't complain. He just carries on and it kills me to know that I never gave him any credit but just an extremely hard time. I think my dad not only needs a break but to feel appreciated like he should have for the past twenty years of my life. Now that I understand that, I would love nothing more than to give him an awesome gift.
My dad, Jerry Caldwell, is the greatest dad in the world...he goes to work everyday at a job that he doesn't know if he will have the next day or not or if someone will be hurt that day, even himself, but he goes everyday so that if my sister or i, or one of out the kids, need any thing we will be able to get it...my dad would rather do without than one of us do without...i have moved to Dallas and had to move back, but he never criticized me..he even drive from Greenwood too Dallas to get me when i called him...when i went of to drive a truck then called him and told him i was pregnant he never said he was disappointed...he was happy....my dad has been through alot in the last past 11 years...first we lose my middle sister in a car wreck on the weekend my youngest sister was supposed to be getting married, then he losses his mom and brother within months of each other...but he has still been the rock of or family...holding us together when we should have just given up...that is why i think he is the best dad ever.
Ever since I can remember, my dad, Minor Norman, has been a fireman. He is the ideal ?heroic parent.? He is not only the provider for my 4 siblings and me, but he is also the caregiver. After work he is the one who comes home and cooks and cleans. He is the first one up in the mornings and the last one to go to sleep at night. He rarely gets a chance to do or buy something nice for himself. I think he is more than deserving of the Kinkade?s or Pearl River Resort gift. I would love to surprise him this Father?s Day with one of these prizes. It would make his year, and to be responsible for seeing him so happy would also make mine!
My Dad, Curtis Perry, is awesome because he has always been there for me. No matter how bad or how much I messed up he always had my side. He took me and my sister fishing and swimming. We were both Daddy's girls. When me and my sister were younger we were privileged not to have a father shout or scream or say a harsh word to us or to our Mom. He is understanding, smart and kind hearted. In 1981, we lived in Florida and he was commuting back and forth to Mississippi trying to find a job. When he found one we left a big house full of our things. We were robbed blind, instead of him falling apart he was our backbone and we survived it together. We had another tragedy in 1998. My sister was 24 years old and had just given birth to her second child when she went on to be with the Lord. He was strong for my mom and for me. He was there for my brother-in-law and my two nieces. The Lord has been good to him and if you ask him why he looks and acts so good is because of the Lord. God Bless my Daddy on Father's Day. I wish all the other Father's in the world a Happy Father's Day also.
My daddy CHOOSE me! He adopted me when I was a year old. After I found out I was adopted I was confused and hurt at first but it soon faded away when I realized that I was WANTED. I learned that it takes more than DNA to be a REAL father. He has been my ROCK through out my whole life. I would not be the person I am today without his love and guidance. He is a Lutheran pastor and I have been blessed to witness his love for the Lord to everyone he meets. This year for the first time since I was a child I will be able to spend Father's Day with him. I am truly blessed to have Pastor Bob Wolfert has my FATHER.
