Seeing friends post pictures and quotes about their fathers can be a painful reminder of what you have lost – but, that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate your amazing dad.
Today can be a good time to show your love and appreciation for them, reflecting on happy memories, as well as remembering all the lessons – and corny dad jokes – they taught you.
Here are some messages and quotes to share either on social media (or privately) this Father’s Day.
Father’s Day messages for dads who have died
Having you as a dad was the greatest gift I ever received. Happy Father’s Day in heaven.
Rejoice with your family in heaven on Father’s Day as your family on earth remembers you.
You’re always in my heart, Dad, this Father’s Day and every day.
Prayers are being uplifted in your honor this Father’s Day, Dad. I hope you are able to celebrate with Granddad this year.
Sending a prayer to you in heaven, Dad, instead of our traditional phone call on Father’s Day. I hope you get my message of love.
What I’d give if I could say ‘Hello Dad’ in the same old way. To hear his voice and see his smile, to sit with him and chat for a while. So if your father is still here, cherish him with care, for you’ll never know the heartache until you see his empty chair.
Your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever.
