3 months as of today. Hard to believe.

Time does go by so quickly, but in the same breath, seems like he's been gone forever. I miss seeing him, talking to him, and just enjoying his company.

I miss my Dad.

Almost 2 months since my dad left us. I know just how you feel. There are so many things I wish I could talk to him about.

14 years since step dad left us, a American Indian pipefitter with a PHD. I was learning a lot about being an adult when he left after a long illness, I am older then many of you have posted but he still had many things to teach me.
My father died 2 years ago, all he had to teach me was how not to be a POS and a drunk abuser. Chief was a Good Man(Step dad) who spent many years teaching us how to be men.

18 years for me. And my mom 3 years ago also.

Sigh...

1 year 3 months for me....we had an argument over something really stupid about 2 weeks before he passed. We were not speaking at the time and I didn't even get to say goodbye.

Cherish the moments with your family guys and gals. I kick myself in the a$$ daily for not picking up the phone or stopping over for a Coke or something and making amends.

R.I.P., dad. We love and miss you!

22 years for me and I am 37...seemed just like yesterday.

Well, he was an old timer when I was born. Around 54. People used to think he was my gramps...

Taught me alot in the short time I knew him.

I will be 62 in April and I still have both of my parents. Dad is 87 and Mom is 83. I know the time to say good bye is at hand but I sure dread the day.
I feel very blessed to still have my parents at the age of 62. I will watch the Daytona 500 with them on Sunday.
God bless you all.

My dad went in July 2001 at age 45.

I think about him every day. He died way too soon.

I'm 21. Didn't make it to 60 either. Not a day goes by without thinking of him.

Man, I feel for you guys who lost your Dad so young.

I should really feel fortunate we had Dad until he was 73 and in good health up until the very end.

I really don't know how to explain how I feel..........it's just this empty spot in my heart that I keep expecting/hoping will heal...........

Dad died the first of this month at the age of seventy five.

We have known for two years it was coming. Hospice started coming to him in December.

It was still a shock when he passed. I miss him.

Mine died when I was 2. I never got a change to know him.
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 5:49:18 PM EDT
5 years since my Dad passed away, and not a day goes by that I don't think about him.

Just about 3 years for me.

I'm just waiting for the phone call...My dad is 85, has Alhezimers (sp?) and picks disease, He's in a nursing home at present, in Florida. I tried to call and talk to him about 2years ago...He didn't have a clue who I was, The call lasted about 4minutes. I never called back. Maybe in his case, death would be better, God would take care of him. There's nothing anybody can do for him now.

Haven't lost my dad, but gramps has been gone for two years now. I never understood why he was so pissed when Waco happened, I guess I just needed to pay a bit more attention then.

5 years since my dad died. I was 27 he was 55. Burried at Pensacola NAS, I havent gone to visit his grave site yet. Noone comes close to relating to me like he did, and i hate not having him around. My back-up is gone for ever.

6 years in April for my Dad, about 6 1/2 for FiL, my wifes uncle the boat modeler, shooter, retired Chief Gunners Mate EOD Diver, 2 weeks before my Fil. My parents best man about 2 weeks before my Dad, he couldn't make it to the funeral. He had been a POW, liberated a few Concentration Camps, backpacker and wilderness photographer, was working on making a birdhouse for my parents, dropped dead in a wood scrap pile at the new house around the corner. His son was a volunteer paramedic who rolled on the call. The Father of Ma D's best friend and one of my buddies from elementary school, stroked out two days before the Christmas between my Dads and died two days after Christmas.

All were veterans, Korea, WWII, Vietnam, all were guys you would really enjoy being around and bs'g for hours. I shared one or two hobbies with all of them.

What a horrendous year, one of my guys went into bad clinical depression, and took about 3 years to really snap out of it and is doing real well now.

There isn't a week that I don't see something and think I need to call my Dad and let him know. Every so often something that one of the others would enjoy. And then Damn, he's gone.

My Great Grandfather lived to 104, my grandfather 88 with heart trouble and emphysems, and my Dad 76 with Pulmoary Fibrosis. Don't like that progression.

And my Mom had a TIA last week.

My dad died on 4/4/95. I still catch myself thinking about something and telling myself to ask dad, "because he will know".

Most things that we disagreed on, I have learned that he was correct.

We have many family partys,and it is still very noticable that the anchor of the family is not with us in body.

I miss him.

My dad passed away a week ago. It seems like he's been gone forever. The toughest thing will be going to the range without him. That was always our thing....
