Only just seen the last 2 pages David, I'm so busy doing this & that I missed it completely, & now I feel awful.

You must be absolutely devestated, your love & pride for your Dad shone through these pages.

Nobody knows the pain the loss of our Dad means until it happens to them.

I went into my shell for 2 years after my Dad died, I was unbearably bitter & morose, everyone kept saying nice things & I did not want to know. Let me pay my grief bill, leave me alone.

Then, almost overnight, 2 years later, it was OK, & suddenly, all was well with the world. Because I realised he was still there, looking down on me, making sure I behaved as he wished, being proud of me when I did good, annoyed with me when I did not follow the standards he had set me, but most of all, he was still there, chatting to me, every day, about all the common interests we had. Yup, trains, planes & cranes, all that nonsense. 

And to this day, over 30 years on, we still chat every day, we are best mates, brothers, father & son, stronger than ever. It's just fine, lovely.

One day you will be in that place, but for now, go do your lonely grief. You owe that to Dad.

RIP Dad.

RIP

When my Dad passed I was sent this message from someone and I snap send it to anyone in the same boat now

You can shed tears that he is gone
Or you can smile because he lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because you cant see him
Or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your minds, be empty and turn your back

Or you can do what your DAD would want - Smile, open your eyes, Love and go on!!

Thoughts with you bud!!

Just caught up with this thread and sorry I didn't keep up with it.

So sorry for your loss David. May he rest in peace and your family rejoice in the memories of him for the rest of your lives.

Yesterday afternoon this Chapel was filled with love and respect for my (Very Impatient) Dad.

All the seats in the Chapel were taken and there were more in the vestibule. A mix of old and new friends sang two hymns that meant so much to my Father.
Will Your Anchor Hold includes the motto of the Boys' Brigade, Sure & Stedfast, within it's chorus.
Abide With Me is a beautiful hymn in and of itself, let alone the poignancy which attaches to it through it's singing at FA Cup Finals down the years.

His coffin was draped in the Union Flag with his tricorn hat and medals on it.

The Captain of Invalids read his eulogy and spoke of how well Dad had fitted into his new life and the sadness that that stage of his being was cut so short and, after his coffin had left for his final journey we gathered in the Pensioners' Club House to chat awhile.

Yesterday was always to be a quiet day, a day when, in a sense, we dealt with the formalities of goodbye. On Saturday afternoon, at the church in Northampton to which he was attached throughout his life, we will celebrate the life of a man who has been described in every card, letter and conversation about him as a gentleman.
I had always known that my dad was special, but the last few years have shown me just how special.

I've appreciated the indulgence of Blonde in hearing his story over almost a year. I only wish we could have reached a time when you were tired of hearing about him.

From it's start, this has been one of my favourite threads and I'd never tire of hearing about him.  The world has lost a genuine hero.  x

As Laxie said, who could tire of reading the posts of a proud and loving son about his amazing dad?
I'm sure there are still lots of wonderful stories you could tell, and I hope that you still feel you can share them with us.
