Father's Day, As Told By Daughters, Sons, And Dads

Local 24 Photographer Janice Bridges Shares This Touching Story

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Local 24 photographer Janice Bridges crisscrosses the Mid-South every weekend to find the best stories in our area. On this Father’s Day, she stopped to hear from many of you about what dad means to your lives. Here are those responses.

Becky Pollock said, "He's an excellent example of the person that I wanted to marry. He is a very kind person, very patient. Um, just a good person."

Becky’s dad, Rodney Leath, replied, "It's a lot to live up to, isn't it? (laughter) Very blessed to have such wonderful, beautiful daughters and granddaughters."

"He didn't have much to teach us by way of education or anything, but solid man, provider, consistency, that he was our rock in our family," Eric Weaver said.

"I love going on campouts with my Dad. I'm a Boy Scout and every chance he gets, he always comes with us to our different campouts, and he loves nature," Cody Hunter said.

"And I work with him. We both do I.T., and he teaches me a lot. Uh, so now, when I move out to California to make it in show business, I won't have to be a waiter, I can do I.T. work," said Cody’s brother Evan Hunter.

Jamie Hunter, Cody and Evan's Dad, replied, "I've struggled my whole life to raise them to be good kids, and they are."

"He is very dependable, and he's always been there for me. He lives in Tacoma, Washington," exclaimed Allison Miles.

Larry Shields explained, "Well, my Dad actually was in the military, and I didn't get a whole lot of a chance to have that type of relationship. However, there were other men in my life that filled that role, and I'm very thankful for them. So, I'd like to say, to Bishop Elam Brown with the CME Church, retired, I love you Dad. And to my real Dad, I love you as well."

Luke Acree was short and to the point. "He takes care of me and works."

Ellie Acted summed it up clearly. "He's, um, a good Daddy."
