Hey Barry...Sorry to hear about your Dad. That's tough. Letting the tears run helps.

Feel for you; both my folks are gone, odd to be orphans.

Thanks for the kind words and thoughts, guys. Wasn't looking for sympathy (OK, I was, a little).

My Mom is still with us, so I am only a fatherless child.

Funny how children are referred to as orphans, you rarely hear the term applied to adults.

Sorry to hear man. I luckily still have both mine. Spent all day with my mom. My GF and I decided long ago not to have kids. So we have made our pets a stronger extension of our family. Hits me pretty hard when the dogs are in pain. Or harder yet, that my brother is hurting due to his longtime friend/family member.

The other day I got the test results of my dogs tumor and they said it was non cancerous. But then yesterday we found out my father in-law is losing his battle with cancer and is entering the hospice floor of the hospital. So my wife is a wreck.

Thoughts and prayers........If not tomorrow, then sometime. Usually when you least expect it, over the craziest things you would never connect until it hits you. Pop was a superintendent. I grew up following him around on the golf course. I can spend all day at the course and "it" never hit. I go somewhere and something connects to a memory and I have to compose myself again. Enjoy the memories and tears. They prove the relationship was special.
