    When I was young, I was a daddy's girl.

    It was a hot summer day. My dad and mom loaded us kids up in the car to go swimming. When we arrived, all of the kids there were jumping into the water. My sister and I thought we were supposed to do the same. We jumped in and started drowning. My dad dived in fully clothed...

    Friend, Philosopher, Guide,

    Boss & Dad: That is the ascending order in which I preferred him in my life, Dad being the most preferred obviously and he fulfilled every part with aplomb in my 43 years. He would put up with my rants, accept me for who I am, did not hold any grudge over the innumerable...

    The divorce makes all holidays harder.

    .. and especially when I can't spend Father's Day with my father because he lives eight hours away. He's been in a depressed kind of mood lately and I'm afraid Father's Day is just making it harder on him. I wish I could do something to help.

    It's been nearly 9 months since my wonderful Dad passed away. The shock and numbness are wearing off but the pain is still very raw. I knew it would be hard but I didn't anticipate how strong the feelings of loss and emptiness would be. What I wouldn't give to see him again! I...

    Some days more then others, it's been a few months now and I think about him every day, usually just as a subconscious thought. Every now and then something makes me think a little harder about him and it brings a tear to my eye, the world is a better place for him having been in...

    My father died October of this year.

    My dad took his last breath on March 12th,

    2014. He was only 53. He fought his cancer hard. Until the very end. He didn't want to let go of my mom, my brother, or me. Before he passed, he told me to stay strong. I usually don't have a problem with being strong but this was destroying me & he could definitely tell. I...

    Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.

    I was lucky enough to have a very loving dad. Of course, when I was younger I though that he must hate me (he was strict growing up), but as I got older, I understood and appreciated the way he'd raised me. And I knew that everything he'd done was out of love.I miss him every day...

    I didn't want him to know too much, and I am sorry that I didn't let him know me completely. He was a survivor and he seemed to be at peace with the world that broke him more than once. I had the privilege of being the one that he spent his last days with. He said that he needed...

    Happy Father's Day to all of the men

    who are real Dads to their kids... Most men can produce a child, but being a true Dad is truly awesome! My Dad was wonderful & I was so blessed. I miss him every day, but on days like today, I sure wish there were telephones in heaven. Love you Dad!!
