South Africans pay tribute to their dads ahead of Father's Day
South Africans took to social media on Monday to share heartfelt messages about their dads ahead of Father's Day later this month.
The posts also included dedications to uncles, grandfathers and other father figures who helped raise them.
Here are just a few of the messages posted under the hashtag #DankieTyma.
Your presence in our lives is priceless (you know all my friends names and class mates names from high school even today😂). The way you treat and love my mother 👑❤️👌🏿. Your consistent love, support and kindness reminds me of how more God (father in heaven) loves us. #DankieTyma pic.twitter.com/7e0ilrJaJ6— SC: MetaLetoka (@metaletoka) June 3, 2019
#DankieTyma for supporting my decision of quitting my Taxi Driving job and going back to school, for believing in me when I told you that I will make even after a 6 year break. Lastly for being patient with me while I was still job seeking and studying further💖. pic.twitter.com/fsHfAzBJ7t— Anathi Qina (@AnathiQina) June 3, 2019
