  • Very sorry for your loss. Although you only had 20 years with him, I am envious of what you had.

    My dad.......well, he is a complete jerk. He is racist, egotistical, hard-headed, hot-headed, and will do anything and everything to get his way not caring who he hurts or burns along the way. Let's just put it this way.......there is a reason why his name is DICK!

  • Me and my dad used to toss a nerf football out in our culdesac. We used to fly kites and he taught me how to ride my bike. We are trying to patch up our relationship now, though. It's a slow process, but we love eachother, and we both admit mistakes....but the love is the glue holding us together.

  • when i was going through the most rebellious years of my life, i pretty much cut my parents out & wouldn't listen. My dad never gave up. he would write me a letter every week and put it on my bed. i still have them!

  • One of my favorite memories with my dad is when I was a young girl, maybe 5 or so. He worked all week out of town, so when he was home I would stick to his side. He loves to watch football, so then I would sit on the back of the couch with my legs on his shoulders and my bowl of snacks on his head lol. My mom has a picture of us like that. I'm so sorry for your loss.
