"You are such an amazing father to our Dahlia Amélie. From early morning smiles, nappy changes, burping sessions, cheeky monster faces and sarap cuddles - being a father has come so naturally to you. We are so lucky to have you in our lives. And because it is Father’s Day, I’ll finally concede. Our little girl is a little Erwanita. She looks so much like her papa – the cutest little bb girl. I guess lihi is real after all. Je t'aime Mon amour. Happy 1st Father’s Day."

"Taken from our departure on May 8, 1980 for the US for my dad’s triple heart bypass surgery followed by our 3 years in Boston. Opo, ganun ako ka 'confident' na bata, at just 9 years old may 'binibilin' ako sa Dad namin na mga dapat nyang gawin... Marami nang nagsabi (my mom included) that I really took after my dad at ako ang female version nya. I have matured enough, would you believe I am now just one year younger than he was when he was assassinated in 1983, for me to realize I have so much more to learn: humility, self sacrifice, and the willingness to serve with every drop of my blood before i can truly be worthy of that compliment.
(Yes, I was that 'confident' as a chuld at just 9 years old to tell my dad what he should do. Many people (my mom included) said that I really took after my dad and that I was his female version.)
"BUT I share with both my parents an unwavering LOVE for the Philippines and Filipinos, come what may, ano man ang pagsubok, mahal ko ang bayan natin at gagawin ko ang makakaya ko para tumulong sa kapwa para makabangon tayong muli. That is the best Father’s Day gift I can give Ninoy Aquino." (But I share with my parents an unwavering love for the Philippines nadandFilipinos, come what may, no matter what challenges. I love our country and I will do my best to help people to rise up again. That is the best Father's Day gift I can give Ninoy Aquino.)
Coleen Garcia greeted husband Billy Crawford, her dad, and stepfather.
"Happy Father’s Day to all the daddies and father figures out there! God bless all those strong people who lead, guide, love, and carry their families through all the best and worst times."
"I just want to take a moment to honor the amazing Dads I have in my life! From our jolly Papa who is always there when we need him, to our loving and patient Tito JB who takes care of all of us everyday, to DaddyC who just loves to make people laugh, and now my love @billycrawford, who I know will be such an amazing Dad. I love you all, and I’m so grateful for you!!!"
