Read: 702 Day of the Dads at Waterfall City

We were at the Waterfall City and my dad was reprimanding me so I gave him a bit of lip. So I got into the pool and it felt like the water was pushing me away, I called for him to help me. He extended his hand and he said wait a minute, pulled his wallet out of his pocket and put it aside and pulled me out of the water. I asked him why he did that, he said if something happens to him he should be able to pay the expenses...

Jo-Anne, caller

My fondest memory with my dad it was when he took me for my drivers license. He was very encouraging and supportive...

Andrew, caller

My real dad left my mom before I was born, so I called my grandfather dad because I didn't understand that my father had left us. My grandfather worked very hard, I used to look forward to 5 o'clock when he comes back from work so that we can have our bonding session at the park.
