    I wasn't able to celebrate father's daylast year because I was on a respirator. He passed about three months ago. He was the best dad, always there for me no matter what it was. If I'm a tenth of the father that he was to me then my kids will be ok.

    Yeah, it was rough for a few years after my dad passed (he was 58, so I was still relatively young).

    It gets better - and quite frankly has made me a better dad.

    Sorry about your dad Bob. You've had it rough for awhile. :depressed: Hopefully things will continue to improve.

    I hear ya. My mom passed away three years ago. It was supposedly the end of a five year nightmare. But the emptiness lingers. Now dad's mental capacity is 25% what it used to be living in an assisted living facility. If he knew his entire life savings will be depleted in a couple of years he would give up. He's now the child.

    I think logically. It helps. People either die young or get old and die. I'm grateful for the simple memories yet realize it sucks getting old. Thats what humans do.

    I get why we have to pretend to care about the fake Mother's Day holiday, because women are needy and require constant attention and reaffirmation. But a man would have to be a real fruitcake to give a shit about Father's Day.

    He always thought of me and my well being. Hours before he went his favorite pastor gave him last rights, he stopped the pastor and told him to say a prayer for me instead.
