So sorry for your loss Twisty, sounds like he was a really great dad. Cherish your memories.
Sorry to hear about your dad's passing. It sounds like he was a great guy.
Very sorry for your loss. Rest assured....your dad is ALWAYS lookin' over yer shoulder.....always. He's still doin' his job. Making sure you are safe....just from a different address.
So sorry to hear that. Our Dad's been gone awhile now... but we've found that a part of him is still very much with us even today. Times when we've had to fix something in the house that we thought impossible and found he had rigged a tool knowing we'd need it someday... all we had to do is stand still for minute in the garage and realise it.
Going through owners manuals to get a part for the water softener and finding his hand writing "There's a bypass behind it/call ### for parts"
Our fav so far was calling the plumber to fix the well pump. After debating on what the problem was, he went in the crawl space to check the pressure switch and came back up with a blank expression and a note that said "It's over the workbench in the barn." Sure enough there were enough parts to build another well pump in boxes over the rafters.
Throughout our childhood he was stern about everything having it's own place in the house, the garage, the shed and barn... and now that we know what he's done we still keep it that way. There's notes and scribblings behind walls near valves he's worked on.
Lord knows how much we miss him, but he still shows up every now and then and it brings a smile... and a chuckle to our day. I don't think we'll ever sell this house-
You may run in to this the next time you go camping or when going through bank papers for the house of even rifling around the garage for a tool... but you'll know that moment when see it and it's something to look forward to.
Good people leave good things behind them. It's unavoidable.
Sorry for your loss.
My condolences go to you and your family and our prayers go to you and your family. We too, have experienced all our parents passing on both sides of our family and is never easy. It sounds like you have many wonderful memories and you will always cherish them. Take care
Condolences Twisty......may he rest in peace. He sounded like the true outdoorsman!
Sorry to hear of your loss.
Our condolences to your family. Sounded like he had a lot of fun.
Thank You Everyone.
Yesterday when I was messing around with the TT, the yard, the garage, the truck, the dogs and other stuff, I realized I was being him.
It felt good.
He was going to get all Billy Goat on me and climb out one of the ridge trails!
Crazy Old Man...
God bless him and you and yours.
I offer you my deepest condolences, but I sense that you have something much greater that he left behind and that is a strong relationship and devoted effort into raising you right. You couldn't have eulogized him any better than your two posts here and my prayer is that those things could work to strengthen you when you feel weak and comfort you when you feel sad. He sure sounds like a guy that we would all love to know.
So very sorry to hear about your Dad, Twisty. It sounds like he was a wonderful man.
Sorry for your loss.
My dad has been gone more than 35 years now (he'd be 109!), but it is still neat to use things he taught me, and the tools he left me. (Happened on my mother's side too - she's been gone over 30 years. It is cool to use a garden or shop tool knowing that not only have my hands used it, but a generation or two before me.)
So sorry for your loss.
Sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
