    As a Special Ed. teacher…I cannot thank you enough for supporting your beautiful daughter and making her smile

    As a woman…you are an amazing father

    As a human…you are the definition of a hero (characters who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for self sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good of all humanity)

    and thank you for making me cry with happiness ❤

    Amazing father, deserves a medal

    I see what he's doing with Maddy, and that causes me to look at my own life. I see my three children, and the looks on their faces when something is fun and exciting, and I realize that I need to do that more. Forget what is petty and angst-causing in my own life, and see that what these 3 beautiful kids see, as happy. That will make me, hopefully, as much of a great man and father as Rick is. KCCO sir, you are an inspiration.

    Why do you have to go and make me cry!? As a father I admire this man! As a man I envy him and as a person I learn from his example! You’re the greatest dad of the day!! And I know you will for the rest of yours and her lives.
