I dearly loved your story and sadness about losing your dad, and I am so amazed at the way you portrayed your love to him. I am sure he was a very proud man having a son like you. We so often always find fault with our parents for the things they did and didn't do and it is finally so refreshing having someone savor his personality and how strong men can really be without being abusive or hurtful. In stead of painful memories we surround ourselves with, it is refreshing to listen to a mans point of view and how respectful we should all become of our parents even after their passing. A day does not go by that I don't think and smile about my dad and know he is always with me. Thank you for your very touching expressions of love. God bless you.
