Default My Dad

Some of you may have noticed my posts in the What's bothering you right now? thread about my dad having his 5th heart attack in mid February and then his quadruple heart bypass, as well as my updates on his progress. After about 3 1/2 months of hanging on my dad passed away today.

I will miss him for the rest of my life he was my best friend in this world and I'm so glad to have had him as a father. I will miss our monthly get togethers and just too much else to post.

I'll leave it there as I'm having troubles typing now. I'll thank you all for your condolences now as I may not get to this thread much in the next few days.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My dad passed in January after a long illness and I know your loss hurts beyond any description. My sympathies to you and your family.

Hey RR,

I'm really sorry you lost your Dad. He sounds like such a special, important part of your life. I truly hope he's now found peace and that you and your family do too. Take good care of yourself.

So sorry that your dad who you were so close to passed away. It sounds as though you had a wonderful relationship with him and I hope that has given you countless memories to cherish in the absence of his physical presence. x
