thanks guys. he had serious complications from the latest of many, many strokes, large and small. he had a good life, he was active in theatre, music, small airplane pilot, and had a long career as an electrical engineer. he taught me to think ahead and look to see what needs to be done, to leave things as I find them, and take care of what I own. he told terrible jokes (Occassionally a funny one), and was extremely sensitive. I inherited the last one. i'm glad he's in a better place, and I hope he can find mom up there. he was a good guy.

My father died suddenly in March 2005. I was in outer space for weeks. I'm different, now, having lost a parent.

Be gentle with yourself, things may be weird and hard and intense for a while.

aww, so sorry for your loss chewie. ((((chewie))))

The first year is a big shock, so many memories and thoughts, the holidays, birthday. The second year feels like forgetting is a betrayal but the memories fade. After the burden of the loss lifts, in my experience, the memory of one's father, his companionship, intelligence, funny side, all that was good in him, keeps one company in life.

I found that even when my dad died the relationship with him didn't stop, it evolved. That seems to be the way love is.

Hugs to you.

May he rest in peace.
