Keep Your Dad’s Memory Alive

If you have children, talk with them about your father, whether they had the opportunity to know him or not. Keep his memory alive by telling them about your dad, pointing out ways in which they are like him. Show them any photographs you may have of your father and talk with them about what he liked to do, what he found funny, family vacations, etc.

Share Something He Taught You

Share something that your father taught you, such as how to throw a baseball or Frisbee. Or show another family member how he taught you to juggle, cook a favorite dish, or draw.
