Deepest and most sincere condolences, Kevin. Losing a parent is one of the most difficult things one can experience. Time will lessen the blow slowly. However, please try to keep in mind that you had an AMAZING Dad. You were very blessed to have such an amazing, self sufficient, and talented Dad who taught you how to be the same. My Dad was very much the same kind of man...someone who could fix anything and set a great example on how to live, be kind, and be giving to others. My Dad passed at 62 from cancer... It still breaks my heart... Many prayers and much love sent your way. Rob
No matter how prepared we think we are, there is never a good time for this shock.
I got that phone call much earlier than I expected:
My Dad was only 59 and had been retired for just over two years -- not near enough.
We had just played in a 3-day golf tournament together and he died the following evening.............heart attack.
Hang in there for your Mother -- the next 6 months will be tough on her (and you).
May God bless your family.................
So sorry to read this. Thank you for sharing a little bit about him. What a great way to honor him, sharing your memories and introducing him to us. I would love to hear more once you get past this extremely tough season of life.
Thanks for checking in, Kevin, and my sincere condolences to you and your family at this terrible time. You are one of the good guys here on DFO, so I'm not surprised at the outpouring of support for you. Count me as one of those supporters. Please let us know how you're doing.
