Marie Osmond honored her father George's "incredible integrity" and many of his other positive attributes in an Instagram post dedicated to the late Osmond family patriarch for Father's Day. She shared her lengthy explanation of many of the life lessons she had learned from her father as well as how his teachings had continued to shape her in adulthood as she married, began her own family, and became a grandparent.

Marie explained on the social media site that she will always think of her father first whenever she needs to make a decision. Marie stated she always looks to what she believes her father would do in certain situations and then takes that path. She believed that her father always led with his heart, then his head when deciding a direction to steer their large family, which included his wife Olive as well as Marie's brothers Virl, Tom, Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, and Jimmy.

"I will always be grateful that you and your brothers were generous to share your parents with the world. It gave all of us an example of what was possible in the world," remarked one follower of the way the Osmond clan allowed each fan to feel they too were a part of their extended family.

"Lovely couple, I know how special they were to you!!" stated a second fan.

"Picture that say a thousand words happy father day father Osmond," said a third Instagram follower.

"Aww Marie, I'm crying. I'm so happy that you & Steve found each other again. I know your Dad was always proud of you throughout your life, & I'm sure he is so happy you took the chance to try again for your eternal love & happiness," said a fourth fan.
