Don,
Sorry this thread didn't have a better outcome . I've been down the exact same road with my Dad , so trust me when I say I know how you feel. We too were best friends and did all sorts of stuff together. Unfortunately , life moves on and we all get left behind at some point. Smile , laugh and remember the good times..the fun times ...the loving times...it helps. God bless.

Thanks again all! Today we circle the wagons around my Mom, tomorrow we put him to rest. The next job is to explain to my 3 year old that her Grandpa is in heaven....this could be ruff.

Dyno, Very sorry to hear about your loss. Rest assured, that your dad is not suffering any longer. I know the pain in your heart, as I just lost my Dad Christmas day. I dream about him nearly every night. I now know that telling someone that you love them, brings a different feeling than it did in the past. My prayers are with you and your family.........

Kids understand more than you can imagine. My daughter still gets me choked up when she brings up her memories with my dad from out of nowhere. When she asked to get a picture in her first communion dress with my brothers racing trophy I could hardly get my grip. Tell them the truth, answer when they have questions, and they will amaze you with their perception.

My Dad is also my best friend, and I was even best man at his re-marriage. I dread the day that the friendship comes to a mortal end. He will always be with me, just like your Father. I guarantee you will still have the same exact conversations, and after all those years, you know exactly what he would say, so don't lose sight of that.

My condolences to you and yours Dyno/Don.

Brian

Although I am lucky enough to have both parents and wife's parents around,and I try to realize that daily,you have re-inforced what a gift I truly have.
Again,my deepest sympathies to you and your family.

Dyno,

Sorry to hear of your loss. You know I understand what you are going through. Please try to find comfort in knowing your dad is no longer suffering, and that he is always with you now.

I still think of my mom every day. It never really goes away ... you just learn to get used to it. As time goes by, you will see that their spirit and their advice will continue to pull you through the difficulties life brings.

My thougths and prayers are with you and your family. Don't hesitate to call if you need anything or just want to talk.

Sincerely,

Chris
