Our father’s leave lasting impressions upon on us. Impressions that define us as individuals and influence the type of parents we may eventually become. Our Henderson Insurance Agency staff shared some of their father’s inspiring impressions.
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of my father. He was a very simple man, yet had a brilliant mind. There were many things he taught me in life, however the one that will stick with me the most forever, is that family is first. No matter how bad things were, he was always there for his wife and children and considered nothing else. He always thought of us, before he ever thought of himself. I am truly a better person today because of this wonderful man and will always honor his legacy. I could only hope to be a fraction of the man who was my father. -Evan
My dad taught me whatever goal I have can be reached with hard work. My parents started from scratch in the US at the age of 35. Now they own their own car, homes, etc. If they can do that in 10 years already having two young daughters, I have no excuse to not be able to reach my goals! -Karla
My father is handy (or, put more accurately, cheap), when it comes to fixing things and home improvements. He has never called a repairman — and he always said, “Carefully observe anyone with a skill that you don’t have and then you can take care of fill-in-the-blank yourself when you have to.” Man was he ever right (don’t tell him I said that). After shadowing him growing up, I have never called a repair man for anything from new brakes on my car, fixing a clogged pipe, or even remodeling an entire kitten with new cabinets and flooring. All that is all to the amazement of my wife and friends who used to call someone to change a lightbulb, now it’s me they call. –Jake
My dad has always been a very kind person, a very giving man, has an amazing heart, and is nonjudgmental. He would give anyone the shirt off his back. He was part of a missions and would travel south to Baja to give to the poor. He was a poor kid himself that came from Mexico at a very young age and didn’t even finish school. I believe he finished up to 4th grade, but worked very hard and was adored by many people. He taught me no matter where you come from or your background if you want it, you can make it happen! -Debbie
I am inspired when I see my two wonderful sons being great role models for their children. I am truly proud to see the passion that they have for their children. Their morals are AWESOME!!! When I see my sons giving their all to be like kids again to play, to participate in family fun and sports, to take the time to interact and act a fool is great! I am thankful that my boys are doing such a great job as Daddy’s. -Elena
My dad raised four daughters. Right there, that puts him in the hero category! But my dad is my hero. Despite tremendous health setbacks, life disappointments, he is the strongest most positive person I have ever met. He rallies every day with new gumption to make that day great. I admire his fortitude and his passion to help others. Thanks Dad for giving me someone to look up to in this crazy world. -Elle
From navigating daily life to building stout character, our fathers have shaped our identity. Happy Father’s Day to our life changers. Dads rock!
