- Editor's Note: The following is a letter written by 8-year-old Chia Salisbury about her dad in honor of Father's Day.
My dad's name is Richard Salisbury. He is awesome because he's super kind. When I'm sad, he cheers me up. He never gives up on me. He's the best! When we go places, he lets me get whatever I like. He always plays with me, and makes the best jokes.
He cheers me on when I'm playing sports. He's always in the mood to play, he loves sports. He always hugs and kisses me before I go to bed. If I'm scared at night, he stays with me. He also likes to go shopping with me. He even gets me lots of Christmas presents.
My dad likes to eat ice cream with me. He's always happy! Whenever I want something to eat or drink, he'll let me have it. He likes to watch TV with me, especially baseball. In the car, my dad can hold my hand while he's in the car and still drive at the same time.
My brother, Robert, likes how his dad helps him throughout life. He helps Robert with his science and math homework whenever he needs it. His dad helps Robert get what he likes. He helps Robert when he's sad. My dad cares about his family. My dad is never angry with me or strict.
I love my dad!
