My father has been gone since 2002. Today would have been his and my mothers (she's gone since 2014) 74th wedding anniversary. And my 61st birthday. A bit melancholy all away around.


The missing them never goes away but it does get easier to live with.

It is hard to believe my Dad has been gone 28 years.

True. I still miss may parents. I have so many questions I had wished I`d aked my father about WW2. He didn`t say anything. I guess that is normal.

@ F4UDash4, Happy 61st . Hope you have a good one. smile

NFB, when you have your own children the day will get a little bit easier. His missing presence, however, will always be in the back of your mind. Hang in there. I miss mine as well.

This was my experience as well.

Thank you WangoTango, much appreciated.


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.”

No problem. Went to Dad's grave this afternoon. Only a half hour away, but not in an area I travel often.

This Sunday is one year of Dad leaving us. Incredible one year has gone by already.

Thank you Dad for looking down on us.

Mom and I and my sisters think of you every day and there isn't a week that we don't mention you or bring up a memory of you or something you've taught us.

My condolences. My father has been gone for almost 22 years. I still miss him but it doesn't hurt as much any more, most of the time. I am however now starting to have a little difficulty with the prospect of what would have been his 100th birthday fast approaching.

With deference and understanding towards NFB My Father is 86, my Mom and Dad have been Divorced many years and my Mom is widowed from her second Husband and my Dad is still with his second and both are of advanced age. Dad hardly flies his R/C stuff instead he flies MSFS and His control set up is so impossible to manage I cant sit and fly it at all, he tells me stuff I can't reproduce, but he wants to use it that way. Mom lives with my sister in Kentucky and sadly I may never see her again, I just cant get there and she tells me stuff that is reality but hard to understand about how Mom is now. One day they may both be gone. That's a very real and eminent possibility, And I don't know what I'm going to do, what I'll be expected or be needed to do, Life will kick you awake when you are least expecting, unprepared for or just plain asleep, It has a very loud alarm.

Thank you all again for your words.

We went to Dad's grave and to church. Afterward we had a family meal with Mom, my sisters and their children.
