Happy Father's Day weekend to all you dads! NBC New York anchor Chuck Scarborough posted this photo of his father on his Facebook page. He says: This is my father's military ID when he was a 22 year old bomber pilot in WWII. At the age of 90 he returned to the heavens he commanded so long ago, but is always in our hearts. Especially on Father's Day.

"My dad Staff Sgt. Michael Dudzic. He is the coolest and bravest guy I know. He is a Marine and probably the most funny and caring guy who has always been there for me and my baby sister. Even when he was across the world in other countries, he makes time to talk and make us feel special. I think he is a special man for how he never gives up on anything and always encourages me to do my absolute best. I am lucky to have him as my dad," daughter Bryanna Dudzic shares.
"I'm 32 years old, and for 32 years my father has been my best friend. He would do anything for me, as I would for him. We share countless memories that tell the story of our lives as father and daughter, and although he lives in Florida and I live in New York, we maintain our best frienditude, even when we're an entire coast away from each other." Marissa Sampson says.
Rachel Hirschheimer sent us this photo of her with her Dad! Happy Father's Day!

"My Dad Ben was the best! Here we are in 1947, the year I was born. My Dad passed in 1982 but not before he taught me how to put a worm on a fish hook, that the NY Yankees were better than the Brooklyn Dodgers, and that girls could do anything boys could do. You were way ahead of your time, Ben," Mary R Edwards says.
"My father was an extremely hard working immigrant from Ireland. He was always full of life. Smart, loyal and always trustworthy, he exemplified the meaning of making one's life better in the United States. He passed in 1996. The photo is of my Dad, Jim Murphy, and myself, Mary Murphy Kaminski, in 1980 at my wedding." Mary Kaminski says.
"I lost my dad, Philip in 2009. There are many things that have been said to describe my dad. He was kind-hearted, hard working, sincere, funny, generous, strong, dependable. But of all the descriptions that i have heard people say about my father was simply that he was a good man. even though the word "good" is such a small and common word, it describes him perfectly. he adored his family as much as we adored him. He meant so much to us. He was not only a loving son, a loyal brother, a faithful husband and an adoring father, he was our friend, our comedian, our protector...our everything. He would do anything for us if he was asked and would do anything for us even if he wasn't simply because he loved us. My dad will be missed by anyone who has known him because he was not only a good man...he was a GREAT man. One of the greatest i have ever or will ever know. He taught me how to be a better person. i can only hope to be as solid of a rock for my family as he was for ours." Karen McQueen says.
"I love this man so much. He can be so funny and I know that no matter what he will always have my back. I even have an armband tattoo that matched my twin sister that says daddy's little girl!" Jennifer Miele says.
"Happy Father's Day to my fabulous Dad and fellow Rutgers Scarlet Knight!" Nancy Foulks says.
"So many things I could say about my dad and why he is so great to me. But to put it in one word; he is simply AMAZING. Today we will be celebrating his one year of his death; the most hardest thing I ever had to go through," Sarah Padilla says.
Our dad turns 67 years old this year, but he taught us to remain kids at heart, Ann Hitlall says. He is a free spirit and because of him I've learned not to sweat the small stuff and that comes in handy when we face our greatest challenges. He is a kind, humble and quiet soul who in his own quiet way has shaped both my sister and I into the people we are. We couldn't have asked for a better father.

"My dad was vivacious, full of life, a die hard New Yorker, loving, caring, and kind. Sadly I lost my best friend in 2006 to colon cancer. Every Father's Day since has been hard but looking at this picture helps to make me smile. This picture was taken 22 years ago on my first birthday. The look on my dad's face is filled with love and pride," Amanda shares.

Words can't describe how much I love my father. He always believed in me and loved me. His example has led me to work hard, and to keep going after my dreams.

"My dad is my biggest fan!" Patty says.
There are too many words in the dictionary to describe what my Dad means to me. One thing I can think of is that my Dad is like Spider-Man, Superman, Batman & the Fantastic Four. He is my SuperHero. He works very hard and i love him!
Granted, I'm not in the picture, but this summarizes why my father is the best around. This is a picture of my brother, my son and my amazing Dad. He gives his whole heart to anything and everything that we do, (embarrassing himself in the process or not.) He is the hardest working, kindest hearted man I've ever known (no one compares!) He loves his family and goes above and beyond for us and anyone else that he knows. We're blessed to not only be able to call him Dad, Grandpa, Gramps, or Dr. Phil (he could pass for his twin in both looks and advice expertise!), but also our friend, Keryn Frampton says.

"This is my favorite picture of my father and I on my wedding day, 26 years ago yesterday. Edward Foley, or "Big Ed" as he was known, was the most loyal, generous and loving man to his family and friends. I have many fond memories of creating science projects with him, of Dad laying on the floor with his head under my kitchen sink because something needed fixing, and clearly remember him racing up the NYS Thruway with an extra key when I locked myself out of my condo right before a business trip. He was a NYPD police officer for 28 years and a member of the NYS Army National Guard for 42 years. He was happiest when he was serving others and he is greatly missed!" Eileen Warbrick says.

"My biological father decided a long time ago not to be involved in my life. My mother met my step father when I was 10 years old and ever since then he has taken me in and treated me like his own flesh and blood daughter. There's something special about a man who chooses to be your father rather than by default. My father Brian Lockwood is the most amazing, caring, hardworking, selfless person I know and I am extremely lucky he came into my life," says Danielle Felton of Patchogue, N.Y.
Dad is a WW veteran who landed on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. I am eternally grateful to him and celebrate his bravery. As a proud American, I am forever humbled. Love him to the sky and back, Cynthia Dalton says.
