Just under 2 weeks ago my Dad passed away of complications from brain cancer and is home in heaven with his saviour. He was supposed to start his cancer treatments the day he died.. out of the blue he developed blood clots and was gone in a matter of hours. I was able to spend a few good hours with him before he became unable to respond. I thanked him for being such a good Dad and amazing man to look up to. We talked about the times we spent together fishing and working even though he was in alot of pain. He started me in this business, bought me my first ride on and my first trailer and used to motivate me every day to go out and drum up business. (I was 15) He never raised his voice, he never complained even though he worked alot of hours to give us what we have, he always said "I love you" when I left, and taught me so many other things in life. He left a big hole in my life and hes greatly missed. I found out at the funeral that he inspired so many young guys at work too (he was a welder who travelled shutdowns the last few years) A great man, Im proud he was my Dad :)

He's still with you. You'll hear him talking to you the rest of your life, at least that's been my experience.

I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. You and your family will be in our prayers also.

God Bless you and your family and my prayers will be with you. As my own dad was and is a bum interested only in himself and left us when I was only 1 year old and has never ever been there for me it really means alot when I read about guys that had such a wonderful relationship with their dad and I try hard everyday to be that kind of dad to my child and I'm sure your dad knew how you felt and also felt you deep love of him.

Very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I lost my Dad over 30 years ago, and my Mom just a few years later, but I still think of them almost every day. Be happy for the good times you spent together. Neill

God bless you and your family.Keep looking to Jesus and he will ease your pain.I lost my Brother/best friend/boss on May 18.Be thankful that your dad went on to glory before any treatments.My brother had surgery to remove his tumor,that was followed by vigorous chemo and then radiation.It made him so sick.The cancer still came back though.I have a hard time trying to fill his shoes,but I know he is still with me and that I will see him again on wonderful day.Talking to him is what gets me through life.He was only 34 yrs. old.My big brother was the hardest working man I ever knew.I am thankful he was saved and is now with the Lord .But I still hurt so much without him.

Your father was a lucky man to have such a reltionship and respect from his son. I lost my son 11 weeks ago today and I too miss him so much. We also had a great relationship and that I will hold on too forever and ever. We were partners and best friends. You are so fortunate to have had such a wonderful Dad, I am sure he will continue to watch over you.

My deepest sympathy, I know it hurts,

I'm sorry to hear about your father. I recently lost my dad. Oct 14 02 my dad went on a duck hunting trip and he and another guy tipped their boat and both died of hypothermia. Nobdy was around to help them out. I miss my dad greatly and the worst thing about it is he was only 65 and retired 6 months prior. You are in my prayers and stay strong.

very sorry to hear about your dad, in time you will realize he did much more than you could ever known. I never new my dad but at the age of 40 I had a chance to meet him, I found him and lost him all over again. He turned out to be looking for a meal ticket and he was in better shape than I was! I, disabled as well as going through a divorce with a women who I adored . I will over come and strive to be the man I wanted my dad to be. you have experienced the best life has to offer God Bless and keep you.
