Fathers Day

This will be the second year in a row my son will not call me to wish me happy fathers day. I guess it's fate that this fathers day falls on the second anniversay of his death. To all the parents out there, hug your children and tell them you love them every day. When you think you're at your wits end and no place to turn, just remember it can be worse.

Thanks Andrew, I appreciate that. I really didn't start this thread so anyone would feel sorry for me.

Sometimes when I read some posts on hereabout fathers going to ball games on Saturday instead of doing other things that really should be done I get jealousf.

I know everyone gets busy and tends to overlook the little things that mean so much in the long run but take it from me, you need to pay more attention to the little things than any material goods you own or your own time schedule.

I'm sorry for your loss Bruin. I have a 3 year old little girl and another kiddo on the way and I couldn't imaging that. But I think that we sons need to make sure that we don't neglect our dads! Personally, mine is a father, friend, mentor and a hell of a man. He was a nice looking young man Bruin, I know you are proud of him.

No one can begin to imagine what you feeling, unless they been through it. Thank you for reminding all parents (Mom's too) to spend quality time with their children, no matter what age they are. I think we too often forget time is a luxury not eveyone has.

Take care

I've got an almost 3 yr old lil girl myself that I left Iraq to come home to see. Wont be going back there cuz its still not very friendly...so her daddy is home for good.

Not saying this to be disrespectful, but since nobody else has said it and I know its not Sunday yet but....

Happy Fathers Day IBBruin. I felt like somebody should tell you.

So sorry for your loss Bruin, He was a fine looking young man, and as Posted above, I'm certain you are proud to have known him.

Thank you very much for this post. This should be a wake up call for all parents. I can't imagine what it's like. For most of us, we don't think about the possibility of losing a child, we all think of it as "I will go first". I will be the second to say, Happy Fathers Day (early).

That is an incredible hole you must have in your life, I honestly feel for you as that is BY FAR!!! my greatest fear in life is the loss of a child. That IS the worst pain anyone can feel and I'm sorry for your loss. You are an amazingly strong man to try and help people realize what is right there in front of them and making sure that they don't take things for granted. THANK YOU, I do appreciate every moment with my critters. Happy Fathers Day and I'm sure your son was also very proud of you.
