My father, D.J., in 1981, at a BBQ at our cottage in Ontario. He taught me to cook, to appreciate a fine Bourbon, and to enjoy the simple things in life. I laugh every time I see this pic.

This is my pops. At age 7, he was diagnosed with polio. He relearned to do everything with his left hand and worked his whole life. He took care of us and I have always looked up to him.

My father was my hero and best friend. He turned me into the man I am today. He was hard working and did everything for his family.

This is my Dad, Jim, in 1968. Throughout my life, he was the role model I looked up to. A Vietnam veteran, he was hard working, loyal, and dedicated to his family and his country. He was my hero.
From, Debby K.
My mum, Lillian. She was a great cook! She gave away a lot of things she had—and we weren't rich. She just felt the need to give. I do what I can and always think of my Mum.
From, Jess B.
My Dad, Kevin, also known as "Chef KB." He taught me to work hard, dream big, and always save room for dessert. Love you, Daddio!
From, Adam C.
At 24, my mom had three sons and was soon to be a single mother. She picked herself up and went on to get her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees. She was a great teacher to me and many kids over the years.
From, Randy P.
My Dad. Just the hardest working farmer, mentor and role model ever. He sacrificed so much so that I could succeed.
From, Kelsey S.
Confident. Humorous. Caring. These are traits my dad exudes daily and has taught me to carry throughout my life. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him! Happy Father’s Day, Daddy.
From, Ana G.
This is my mom, Katrina. You will never see her without a smile or hot pink lipstick. I admire how much passion she brings to everything she does and try to do the same.
From, Kayla W.
My dad has been my role model, coach, and friend. He taught me the value of hard work, what it means to be a team player, and to never take life too seriously. Love you, Dad!
From, Fadra N.
My mother has always lived her life out loud. She changed hairstyles and colors long before it was in vogue. She was determined to live a life full of love and laughter, and that's exactly what she's done.
From, Rebecca G.
I am so thankful for my parents, who inspired me to live life with joy and excitement. One of the mottos they live by is, “Work hard, play hard." I attribute my love for adventure and travel to them!
From, Taina N.
My mother is the bravest and hardest working woman I know. As a widow and an immigrant, she sacrificed a lot to set my sister and I up to be the successful, well-rounded women we are today.
From, Carrie A.
My parents have been married 50 years, modeling patience, communication, and above all, love. They are truly inspirational just by showing up every day of our lives.
From, Frank V.
Always loved my dad and saw him work hard his entire life.
From, Justin A.
My grandfather, Clarence, was the single biggest influence in my life. He taught me hard work, dedication, and the true meaning of unconditional love.
From, Justin T.
My Grandpa was my absolute hero. My Grandma was a no-nonsense woman. Together, they were quite a combo. I learned toughness and determination from him, and kindness and compassion from her.
From, Michael H.
My father, Jimmie, always inspired me by working hard and teaching me that hard work leads to greater blessings in life.
From, Venita A.
To know my mom is to know light and happiness. She's a go-getter. There isn't a move I've made that she hasn't impacted. I am the woman I am today because of her.
