Happy Father’s Day

Dad, Padre, Father, Papà, Babbo. Whatever you call him, he is that unique figure in your life who holds a special place in your heart: a father. Father’s Day, means something different to each and every one of us, and we’ve asked our staff to share some of their favorite memories with you!

Reflections from our Team:

Lindsey: “Best (and worst) thing my father ever thought me: if something isn’t funny the first time it definitely will be by the tenth.”

Rae: “My Dad is my Best friend!”

Antonio: “Mi Papá ha sido un gran maestra de la vida.”

Justin: “Mio padre è il mio idolo e voglio ancora diventare come lui.”

J’han: “He always had a story to make you laugh.”

Tammy: My Dad can make me laugh as much now as when I was little.”

Ron: “My Dad was the kindest person that I’ve ever met and I still want to grow up to be like him!”

Patrick: “My Dad eats like a horse, sings like a bird and drinks like a fish.”

Deyon: “ I am so happy to be both a Father and a Grandfather!”

Chris: “My Dad never turned down a chance to go outside to play”

Zach: “Without my Dad, I wouldn’t be as ready to take on the world”

Meg: “My Dad will do anything he can for his family”

Max: “My Dad would beat Chuck Norris up”

Julia: “My Dad is the life of any party”

Federico: “Mio padre sarà sempre il mio punto di rifermento”

Liam: “As a father myself..I hope to one day be as kind, strong and courageous as my father..I know no one is perfect, but in my eyes he sure was pretty damn close”

Rene: ”Es un buen tipo mi viejo”

Larry: “This is my first Father’s Day as a father and I am really looking forward to it!”

Scott: “My Dad taught me how to smoke [pork butt!]”

Lauren: “My Dad has always taught me the value in working hard and eating well.”

Suzy: “Growing up in Iowa, I thought the Presidential candidates went to everyone’s house for dinner.  Lorne’s passion for politics was addictive and is what brought me to DC. He was a great dad – I miss him every day.”

Bill:  “Everyone who ever encountered my dad, no matter how briefly, couldn’t help but know that he was an exceptional person.  Kind, friendly, caring and always engaging, he quietly set a very high bar for his four sons. One day, stopping by his summer mountain vacation home I found myself chatting for the first time with the couple who had cleaned his house for the past decade and at the end of our conversation the husband remarked to me, “you are exactly like your dad.”

No one has ever paid me higher compliment.
