Very sorry for your loss. As my father's health issues creep up, I know that day is coming for me as well. I pray you are given the strength and courage to manage all the overwhelming emotions you are feeling.

Will keep you and your family in our prayers. It’s tough for sure to lose a parent. Lost my father in 1998 at only 50yo, he was a quadriplegic the last 16 years and taught me more about working hard in any way possible and being sure to do something good for others than I could’ve imagined I would have learned.

My pastor shared the best advise on losing someone close; Try and focus more on celebrating your father’s life than you do mourning what you lost.

Wiz and Puth said it best... “I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again”

I’m so sorry. I lost my dad two years ago come St Patrick’s day. It’s very hard still and I’m fighting tears right now. A song, a day, a feeling will brush over me and I think of him. I see him in places. Prayers for you at this very difficult time.

I'm shattered for you as nothing pains more than death of a loved one.

I share this hobby with my father currently so we spend a great deal of time together doing anything related to aquariums, fish, corals, etc. I'm grateful for this hobby because it keeps us close. He's taught me so much and I've showed him a thing or two! ;)

Use this time to reflect. Be positive and do something that you know would make your father smile in heaven.

Thank you all for such kind words. I'd like to reply to you each individually but there's a lot to take care of now.

Sorry to bring you all down with me but I was home alone last night and overwhelmed.

My Condolences to you and your family.
It’s hard man, lost my father when I was 23 and he was 49. That was 7/7/07 and it’s still rough. Hang in there my friend. Keep surrounded by friends and family, things will never be the same that’s for sure, but you will learn to live with your loss. What helped me was to try to change my thinking. When ever I felt sad or depressed I tried to tell my self to think of a good time we had. Was difficult in the beginning, but I kept trying this and eventually I came to peace with what happened. Sucks man, I feel for you. Take care friend. And stay strong.

We are always here. You are never alone. I'm sorry about your Dad. I hope you remember all of the quirky things that made you laugh at him and with him.

I washed my Truck today for the first time since before Fall. Bucket was full of brown muck.
I want the Old Man to see it clean this Sunday for His service, even if it rains before then.
I've no plans to drive it before then so I hope it'll stay kinda clean, and I've asked the crows to be kind and stay away from it :p
