    We were not close when I was growing up.

    He was in and out. He was a very hard worker and he was always gone working. I think that because we weren't close, I remember and cherish every special moment we had. He wasn't a hugger or an emotional kinda guy. He was a rock. I was just sitting here thinking of some of...

    I lost my dad last march 21 2014.

    We only had 9 months to accept the fact he was dying. At only 51 years old it was hard to accept. I miss my dad every day and still at times it's hard to get out of bed

    Dad

    I do really miss my father. He was a good man with a big heart. I have many traits like him. He taught me a lot without trying and I am glad he was my father. It will soon be five years since his death. You seem to remember so many little things when the people you love go. I...

    Last saw him at departures,

    Frankfurt airport, 1990. He died that October. He missed so much. He never saw his, er...hang on, yes, 6 grandchildren, nor see our glorious club actually win something. He is missed by us all.
