bbqjimbob,I’m so sorry to hear your father passed away.
I understand what you had to go through,went through it with my dad.
Remember we are all here for you if anytime you want to talk.
May God comfort your family and be your strength at this time.
The calling hours, funeral, cemetery service, and wake were all this past Tuesday. Everything went really well- the flag folding ceremony by the military, and their presenting it to me was such a proud moment for me, and caused me to break down at the same time! The wake was very small, but was with family and dad’s closest friends. It was a welcome relief to do nothing but sit, relax, and eat some very good, homemade food that I didn’t have to cook! While it was a sad day, it was also a good day, in that it honored dad and his memory so well!
Thanks again, everyone, for your thoughts, prayers, and condolences! I really do appreciate each and everyone of them! Also- thanks again, Tara, for posting the original message, and for all of your helpful and encouraging e-mails!
I’m so sorry for your loss. Your dad is in a finer place now.
My sincere condolences on your loss.
I lost my father 11 years ago this Sept during the Jerry Lewis Telethon , a few days after Mother Teresa and Princess Di passed on. Seems like yesterday really.
Please let me extend my sincere condolences.
Jimbob, this March was ten years since my dad passed, and I still think about him every day. Having a good dad is a blessing that spreads out over the whole rest of your life, I think you’ll find. I hope you find some peace in the coming days in your memories of him.
Thanks, everyone, for the kind thoughts! I appreciate them so much! When I have more time, and my mind is more collected, I’ll post more details, etc. I already miss my dad so much, at times I don’t think I can stand it! He was a great man in so many ways, and was always there for his family. We never needed for anything, and his friends could not have had a better friend! More to follow-
Thanks again, everyone! Your condolences mean so much!
My thoughts are with you, Jim.

So sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Jimbob, and all, Mothers day is close. I feel very fortunate. I have 3 Mom’s to heap praise upon. My mother-in-law(don’t laugh too much), my natural Mom and Dad’s second wife, the wonderful "Mema".
Lets all rejoice as we clutch the treasured memories of family. Love those still with us and respect those loved ones who lead us into eternity.
God bless everyone.
PS. Dad would be proud of my expression of love for family.
