Sorry for your loss. That must really bite. I am glad you had an awesome father.
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
I lost mine when I was 17, just before we got to start doing interesting projects together - he was a master carpenter and had been slowly teaching me lots of useful stuff - which I hardly ever get to use these days. Be happy that you had the time you had.

I was just looking at hospice care facilities for my father. Opening up CP and am reminded we're how we're all slowly swept away. My mother passed this past February.
My logical self can prepare and rationalize. Except for the helplessness of those of us that remain. There's no way to really grasp this. I try to dwell on the nice memories - odd little things that, in the scheme of things, count for a lot more than could be imagined.

Really sorry to hear about your Dad...sounds like you lost your best friend as well. This hits pretty close as I found out just a few weeks ago that mine has stage 4 stomach cancer. Anyway, glad to hear someone's making the easy money!
