Last Wednesday after getting home from work got the dreaded news my dad had a bad heart attack,paramedics got him back but a second attack did him in.he was 80 and after battling diabeties for years his heart gave out.
Only a few weeks ago we talked about him flying out to Cali to see my small theatre.so I have kept busy showing my wife around New York City streets,dad worked in The city for 38 years and I felt it better to spend time doing that instead of being at my brothers moping.
Thanks to all here who read my post and God bless.

My condolence to you and your family. Losing a loved one, especially, a parent is always hard.

I am always reminded of this poem when thinking of Dad.

My Father Through The Years

When I was 4 years old – ‘My Daddy can do anything’
When I was 5 years old – ‘My Daddy knows a whole lot’
When I was 6 years old – ‘My Dad is smarter than your Dad’
When I was 8 years old – ‘My Dad doesn’t know exactly everything’
When I was 10 years old – ‘In the olden days when my Dad grew up, things were so different’
When I was 12 years old – ‘Oh well, naturally Dad doesn’t know anything about that, he is too old to remember
his childhood’
When I was 14 years old – ‘Don’t pay any attention to my Dad, he is so old fashioned’
When I was 21 years old – ‘Him? He’s hopelessly out of date!’
When I was 25 years old – ‘Dad knows about it but then he should, he’s been around so long.’
When I was 30 years old – ‘Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks, after all, he’s had alot of experience’
When I was 35 years old – ‘I’m not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad!’
When I was 40 years old – ‘I wonder how Dad would’ve handled it, he was so wise’
When I was 50 years old – ‘I’d give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn’t appreciate how smart he was. I could’ve learned alot from him.’

Author – Ann Landers

RIP to your dad!

I am sorry to hear about your Dad. I agree with you though, instead of moping around you can remember the good times you spent with him. You and your father will be in my prayers, God bless.
