Goodbye (for now) to my Hero

Recommended Posts

My thoughts and prayers to you and your family!  I dread the day I have to deal with what you're going thru now.

He sounds like a great man and someone to be proud of!

  As much as I've been praying lately, know that your dad and his family have just joined my prayers, there are so few left that deserve prayer, there are millions and millions that need it!

So sorry, John.  I lost my dad a few years ago.  I know it's tough.  Hang in there man.

I am so sorry for your loss. Cherish the years you had with him, he sounds like a great man . The pain will lessen with the years but the fond memories will last you for life.

John, very sorry for your loss. He'll be by your side in memory for ever. As others have said, cherish the time with your parents if you still have them.

Thanks for all the kind words guys.    

He left me decades worth of fond memories. I'm glad I am done with most of my home remodeling projects since I know I won't find a better partner to come to my rescue.

John my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  I lost my Dad in 1997 and still think about him especially when I am in my shop.  You spoke of your projects together, I recently had a project here around the house that I had a question he could of answered immediately, I miss that help.  I hope you find peace in your memories

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Lost my Dad about 20 years ago. Every once in awhile I find myself whistling a little tune he used to whistle, usually when I am at my happiest making something. That is when it feels like maybe he is there watching. I got my love of making things from him.

So sorry for your loss John. Shortly after my Mom passed away was when I got into woodworking. I didn't realize it at the time, but several years later my wife and I were talking and realized it was my way to deal with losing her. What hurts the most is I was never able to build her anything but I also think about her every time I enter the shop which is comforting.

I'm very sorry to hear about your father, John. Having lost my father I can relate to your feelings of sadness. You and your family will be in my prayers. You'll never get over the loss of your dad but I pray that you find comfort in all the great memories.
