My Dad

My dad has passed on to be with mom this past Monday-week.

He was an inspiration to me and was always at my side for what-ever came along. He worked so very hard to make a good place for our family and only asked for a good game of golf in return. Believe me, he got his golf in after he retired, and before he could not physically handle the exercise any more. Mom passed some 7 years ago, and dad had a rough time not having her by his side. Now they will have the comfort of each other's companionship with our Lord in Heaven.
He is in a better place now and deserves the peace and tranquiltiy he so deserves.. God bless you Dad and you will be missed so very much

Your son, Jim

Re: My Dad

Jim,

Sorry to hear about your Dad. I lost my father in November of 2007, and I still think of him daily.

While the pain of your loss will never completely subside, it will get easier for you. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family's strength through these times.

Re: My Dad

...So sorry for your loss Jim. My dad passed in '87. He always loved motorcycles but he never got the chance to own that new Electraglide he dreamed of because he was to busy making a life for his family and mom and raising six of us....there isn't a day that passes with me thinking about him. Sounds like maybe your dad and mine had alot in common...sharing your pain...deepest sympathy to you and family...

Nice words. Sorry to hear of your loss, thoughts go out to you and your family. Sounds like you are as good a son as he was obviously a dad.

Re: My Dad

Jim,

sounds like your Dad was proud of you... and your tribute certainly reflects he was a good judge of character...

Separation is hard enough to deal with during this Holy season... hopefully it is softened in the knowledge they are both before the Throne of Grace and praying for ya...


My prayer is that your Mom and Dad share eternal bliss in the tender arms of our loving God....

Re: My Dad

Very sorry to hear of your father's passing. Lost mine 10 years ago. My Mom sure misses him.
Let it be very comforting knowing your folks are together again.

Peace and comfort to you & your family Larry

Re: My Dad

So sorry to hear of your loss. My Dad died when I was 18. I'm 57 now and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him.

Re: My Dad

Sorry to hear of your loss. My Dad passed away three years ago and I miss him and think of him everyday. He always wanted to ride with me but never took that step. I keep his college ring with me when I ride. I feel like he can finally "ride" with me and keep me safe while on the road. Thank God for the great memories we have of our Dads.
