Happy Father’s Day! Let’s CELEBRATE Dads!

16 Jun

Father’s Day was created as a direct response to the establishment of Mother’s day. Sonora Smart Dodd promoted the first celebration of Father’s Day in Spokane, Washington in 1910 at the YMCA. Dodd wanted to honor her father, a Civil War veteran, for being a single father to six children and doing an outstanding job!

At Wrapsody, we are taking this weekend to show our fathers some extra love and remember everything they have taught us! Our Wrappettes have shared their fondest memories and favorite lessons with their fathers below! Happy Father’s Day to all!

Melissa Mann- “I love my Dad for several reasons, but I think the one that stands out the most is the fact that he thinks outside the box- he is an independent thinker and has always encouraged me to be that way too. He can also fix ANYTHING, which has always impressed me! And, he’s just and overall cool guy!”

Blair DeCoux- “ My dad is one of the kindest and most level-headed people I know and has taught he so much. He is so respected and loved by everyone he knows and I’m blessed to call him my dad! Currently though, my favorite thing is to watch him as “Big Dad” to my little boy, Campbell.”

Terry Shea- “I will never forget my Dad’s generosity towards others, his compassion towards those less fortunate and his forgiving spirit. He always had a smile on his face and a personality that would immediately lift your spirits. I miss his big bear hugs that I would get whenever I returned home. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have had such a wonderful father!

Molly Shea- “A favorite memory of mine is running errands with my Dad on Saturday mornings. I would get dressed in jeans and a call cap and he would call me his “little buddy.” We would hit the cleaners, hardware store and stop by Grandmommie and Grandaddy’s. xoxo Love ya Daddio!”

Brook Robertson and her father
