    Sorry to hear about your loss
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    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.

    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.

    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.
