    My dad passed away three years ago this past December 8th.. We had a 6:00 PM Saturday phone call for years. Would love to dial that number again and hear his voice. The wounds of loss will heal, but the scars are still there to remind us.

    My condolences. It is a strange feeling when your father is no longer standing between you and history. Hang in there.

    1 month since my Dad passed.

    I am sure sorry. My Dad passed away on 2/19. It still hasn't sunk in yet. I'm waiting and wondering when the "big cry" is going to hit me. You never appreciate them enough, and when they're gone, it's too late.
    I was fortunate enough to get to stay up all night with my Dad and just visit and talk (he couldn't sleep due to the meds) the night before he died. Part of that night I was just wishing he would go to sleep, but I didn't know that he would die the next night. I'll cherish those memories always.
    I love you Dad.

    You have my condolences also. Unfortunately, I lost my dad this past Christmas Eve. Very sudden and very unexpected. He and my brother are the only guys I would kiss. I told him I loved him many times and am sooooo thankful he knew that before he left this world. I will still see him in my dreams every now and then, and I am very thankful for that. I've had a few good cries since he died but I always find myself asking why. After all, I'm going to see him again and that's very comforting. Along with Christ Himself he was my rock, my strength, and my hero. Here's to you Pops. I'll see you on the other side.

    It's always hard to lose a Dad, you have my sympathy. Mine died Dec. 26, 2002 after a month in CCU following heart surgery. Still miss the old guy but I've got many great memories of our time together.

    My greatest sympathy, I lost my mother on 1 Dec 2005. She was 51. Still hard to grasp that she's gone. Will see her again some day.

    Love the ones that remain...
