Sorry to hear about your loss
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Will keep you and your family in my prayers for peace and comfort.

My prayers go out to your and your family. I have walked this very path and I can't offer any words that take away the pain. Godspeed Airman!

The way you speak of him proves him worthy of the title "Dad."
Being a father is open to the public. Being a dad is earned.
My sympathies for your loss. But I am glad you were raised by a good man. I expect he is proud.
Condolences on your loss; and may you find comfort for your and your mom's grief. I assume that your mom is still living. If so, you know it's important to share with each other. There are grief groups for one or both of you. Just places of sharing not trying to fix anything. A way to relate to memories and to mourn.

Sorry for your loss,my dad was a 26 yr USAF vet retired E9,After he passed I started thinking how many times I thought about swinging by for a visit or went fishing and didn't call to see if he wanted to go.You can't get a do-over and life goes by so fast,They never are really gone,everytime I have a question,I can hear his voice giving me the answer I need

We are so sorry, Steve. In my line of work I know of many step-fathers who have been anything but what you have described. I pray that the God of all Comfort will make Himself real to you and your family. Frankly, I don't believe there is any greater testimony than our children saying we did a good job. Blessings, Steve, in this most difficult hour.

My sincere condolences........when our loved ones are taken unexpectedly sometimes all we want is a chance to say good bye and tell them one last time how much they mean to us.
Sorry for your loss. Your family will be in my prayers.

Thanks to everyone for the thoughts and prayers. They really do mean a lot.
Dad was laid to rest with the Masonic Rites read as he wished. There was a surprising large number of people at the service and way too much food. Gotta love the support of a small town.
I was able to see people that I don't see often enough and spend several days with mom, helping her sort through things and getting ready for winter.
