His love for being the hands and feet of Christ is evident in his daily walk. He taught me many things such as working hard, to never give up, and to love as Christ. His grandkids love him too and know that when needed he would be there for them. Taking him to dinner is such a small gift for the years for love he has given to me, but it would go a long way in continuing for me to make more memories with him.”

At the end, I always want to go back. He takes us to Kings Island or Cedar point when he does not have to, but he wants us to have fun and not be bored at home all day.

Scott Moody was nominated by Myah Moody

Myah said, “I have many, many reasons to take my dad out to dinner and why I love him but to keep it short it’s because he has been my best friend and my rock since day one. He taught me a lot more than any other individual could and he has always been a phone call away no matter what. Southside is and always will be his favorite restaurant in town. Every day for his lunch break Southside is where you can find him. I wish I could express how much love I have for him in this but it would very well turn out to be a book! This is why I love my dad and why I need to take him to dinner!”


James Chandler was nominated by Rhonda Goeppinger.

Rhonda said, "I love my dad because he is my biggest fan.  When I was a child, we played board games, he coached my baseball team, and most importantly he brought me to church every Sunday. I love him because he is always smiling and full of laughter.  He loves telling dad jokes every chance he gets.  I love playing practical jokes on him every chance I get.  Now that I am grown and life is so full and busy, I would love the opportunity to take my dad to dinner and just spend time with him talking and laughing.  I love my dad more than he knows."


Tom Goeppinger was nominated by Danielle, Rachel, and Justin Goeppinger.

They said, "We love our dad because he is always there for us.  He works very hard to provide for our family.  He loves us unconditionally.  He is only a phone call away when we are in need. Our dad has a great sense of humor and loves to joke with us.  He makes us laugh every day.  We would love to take him to dinner and spend time with him.  He is always doing for others and never takes time for himself.  Taking him to dinner would show how much we appreciate him and all he does.  We love you Dad!"


Scott Burgess was nominated by Zoey Burgess.

Zoey said, “I love my dad because he is always there for me.  I know he loves me and would do anything for me.”
