My dad has gone on to his just reward.
Is your dad no longer with us? Had a falling out with dad and not yet reconciled with him?
This thread is for everyone to wish their dad, alive or dead, on good terms with or presently not speaking with, a Happy Father's Day.
I miss my Dad every day.
Happy Fathers’ Day to all.
He would have been the perfect person to talk to about all the mayhem going on.
We both subscribed to the “Conservative Chronicles” back in the early 90s which was an actual print edition of lots of conservative writers like “Mona Charen” and others.
This Father’s Day is the first for me. I am glad we got to see him on the 4th of July before he passed on the 30th.
My father passed two years ago. WWII vet. Loved the USA. Most upright, law-abiding, responsible parent and citizen you could ever meet. He never mentioned the word love but took every burden of his large family and his job upon his shoulders and never expected or wanted anything in return - except mutual respect and righteousness. We miss you, Dad!
I think I have an idea.
I lost my dad in 1996, and like you, miss him every day.
Happy Father’s Day to all and if you’re lucky enough to still have him around, make sure he knows how much he means.
Sorry for the double post. asked mod to delete one.
My Dad passed in 2001
Great photo of a happy dad
I stopped talking to my psychotic mother, three years ago. There’s no way to contact him without getting her first. I miss him so much.
My father passed from 2003. He was a three War Marine who loved his country and his family.
I recently got copies of his service records. I found in there a letter that he wrote to his commanding officer requesting to be sent to Korea. He said it is a Marine’s duty to fight. He did get sent to Korea but a couple months after the Armistice was signed. It was his first command.
I have a shadow box frame hanging in my house with his dog tags and his Ka-Bar from the Pacific in World War II and several pictures of him in Korea. I see it multiple times everyday and I wonder where have all the real men gone?
Frequently I think of things I would like to ask him and sadly no that I cannot. I guess that’s what happens with every generation. Our kids will experience that also.
We’d talk for hours about current events.
He had so much knowledge and put everything into perspective.
Miss him every day, especially in times like these.
Thanks for a great idea!
I used to (good nature) tease my dad about his resemblance to Jimmy Stewart. More than just appearance, my dad naturally emulated similar quiet strength through humility and honesty that is in woefully short supply these days.
I miss him terribly.
My Dad died in 2018. He was the most decent person I have ever known. I miss his humor, his intellect, and his goodness. He considered himself eccentric, but he was our rock in this crazy world.
It's been 2 years for me and I still have daily thoughts that I need to call my Dad for his thoughts on something, as if he is just off on a business trip somewhere. If only Heaven had telephones. I do continue to text his iPad that I maintain.
Great description. Fits my Dad too.
Not to diminish your story or pain, mention this to show understanding.
Every family has that unreasonable jerk.
If it comes to your predicamentnthennitnis horrible. My own family has has our own unreasonable jerk. She has worked her way through the family, destroying relationships between her and everyone.
I was the last holdout but when she mistreated pur mother while mom was dying of cancer...I cut off face to face communication.
