He is the one man who is sure to never hurt her no matter what.

A father’s voice or his smiling face is enough to ease the pain. In case, if you looking for the ways to tell him how you cherish his presence in your life or just want to revisit the relationship that binds both of you together, check out these daughter to father quotes.
