We held a Dad & You Father’s Day Contest, where A Place for Mom readers shared a single photo and story of their Dad and themselves to help celebrate our fathers this June. Now, as promised, we’re sharing all of the great memories we have of our fathers with you.
We received so many great stories from our readers through our Dad & You contest, where we offered a chance to win a $100 cash gift card for a single photo and story about a memory of Dad for Father’s Day.
Talk with a Senior Living Advisor
Our advisors help 300,000 families each year find the right senior care for their loved ones.
We hope you enjoy looking through these stories that mark and honor the contributions of our dads.
Thank you to everyone who submitted memories of your dad and you. Congratulations to the winner of our contest!
This photo is from five years ago at Family Day for Army Basic Combat Training, taken right as I was reunited with my dad after not seeing him for three months. He has been my biggest supporter in all my endeavors and I can’t believe how blessed I am to have a dad that cares so much about his wife and kids. He has sacrificed a lot over the years in service to others. He has centered his life around showing Christ’s love to everyone he meets. He is my hero.
Our winner was randomly selected. Although not everyone could win the grand prize, the response was so great that we are sharing all of the stories and photos that were submitted to us to celebrate Father’s Day this June 21, 2015.
