With Father's Day coming up this weekend, we'll be celebrating and honouring all the fathers and grandfathers that have made a difference in our lives.
We spoke to our agents and office staff this week to get their thoughts on fatherhood - whether they're dads themselves or reflecting on their own fathers - here are a few to look over as we look forward to Sunday:
From Agent Mike Knox:
"This year will be my first time celebrating Father’s Day. Being a father is unlike anything I imagined. I understand now what it means to cherish every moment because they grow up so fast. To daydream about his future and wonder what sort of man he’ll grow up to become. To think of all the great things he’ll experience in his life. He is my entire world, and there is no greater joy than seeing him smile, hearing him laugh and watching him learn and grow."
"The greatest motivation to become a better man is knowing that someone looks up to you."
From IT Administrator Alex McGregor:
"My dad was really great at passing on good life skills. We grew up on a farm, but he wanted me to have options later in life. He taught me everything from how to prepare my taxes to changing a spark plug on a car. I really appreciated that, and I love him to death."
From Agent Jennifer Queen, on her husband (and fellow Realtor) Logan:
