Sorry to hear this NFB, keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.


Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck.”

You & your family have my condolences, my own father passed when he was 69 & I was 29.
It's OK to grieve & in fact, it is probably better if you do.
As others have said be prepared to support the rest of your family & especially your mother.

Very sorry to hear this NFB. OG said it well. My dad died at 65 and my wife's father in his fifties. There are no easy words and there is no easy path. Stay strong for your family and for yourself.

I've lost family members... Mother, father and a sister, so I know how painful this must be... but be assured, you will get through it given time. Look after yourself.

I still have both my parents, they are 84 and 85 and are no longer married to each other. Mom lives in Kentucky with my Sister and her Husband and Dad lives south of me in Sarasota. I know one day I'll get that call and I'm not ready for it. We aren't promised tomorrow, make the most of your time on earth. NFB you have my sincerest condolences.

My condolences NFB. It will be hard for awhile, not that it will be ever easy. After the passing of my Mom last Sept. I am #3 in line of succession on her side of the family and am #1 on Dad's side of the family.

So sorry, NFB.

My father died in 2008. He suddenly collapsed one night while we were at our summer cabin, and I spent half an hour doing CPR while waiting for the helicopter to arrive. Nothing to be done, unfortunately.

I miss him every day. You learn to live with it. It’s hard to see right now, but you do.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

I lost my Dad also in 2008, when he was 64. He was supposed to come back to town from the beach with my Mom the next day, and after that visit his heart doctor for a checkup that he knew and dreaded would reveal he had to have heart surgery, again. Alas, that night he kissed my mom and tucked her into bed, turning her light off, and went back to his study to read or watch TV for a while. The next morning she found him, as if he were asleep in his recliner. That was the worst day I can remember.

The afternoon before, though, the last time we spoke, I shared with him a joke, and I remember his infectious laughter. I am thankful to God for that moment.

So sorry for your loss, NFB. Remain strong and vigilant. From all you have said of him on these forums, I can tell you admired him greatly, and he the same of you. Remember those good times, for they will help you face the steep road ahead of you, as you learn to wear his shoes.

Just seeing this...very sorry to hear NFB. My Dad passed at 52 years old in 1996. I'd like to think that we will all be reunited at some point on the other side...whatever that might be or look like.

You're at the toughest stage of loss right now...it will get better. (it's hard to see that now I know)

My Dad died in 1995, at the age of 48. Cancer. I think of him daily. Remember all the good things NoFlyBoy. It really hit me hard that first Father's Day, it really caught me off guard. He died in Sept.

I am sorry to hear of your loss NoFlyBoy. It is very hard to loose your Dad. I lost my Dad a couple of years ago, and I still think of all the great times we had and what I learned from him.
I know you will cherish you memories of your Dad.
Be well.
