When the Journal asked readers to submit memories of their dad for the Father's Day edition, it didn't take long before stories of inspiration and joy began to filter in.
Each of the memories in today's paper gives just a brief glimpse into what makes local fathers special in the eyes of their families. From spending quality time with family despite daily pressures of work and home, to a shared love of rock, local dads are something special.
Many of these memories are funny and touching — and some shine a light on the deeper impact a father can make on a child's life.
Thank you Journal readers for sharing your dads with us in this special way.
To read all the Father's Day memories submitted, pick up a copy of the June 15 print edition of the Turlock Journal.
