The last thing I did with my father......
« on: January 24, 2013, 09:07:56 am »


  .....was to see "Django Unchained" together.


   My father just passed away. This was following a severe stroke. Really no warning signs that anyone noticed. My dad was in a higher risk group. He had some heart troubles about a year ago.

  We made a date to catch "Django..." at the show on Saturday. He loved the film. Said..."it was a heavy flick". We had a great time. My sister called and talked to him later that day. He seemed fine.

  I got a panicked call from my stepmother on Sunday morning. Everything was not o.k.

So sorry for your loss. I'm glad you got to do something with him.

Sorry about you loss my dad just passed last year and he was given a nice military burial in Dallas, Texas and I was voted by my five siblings to keep his U.S. flag.


Just remember all the good times, the ball games, the butt whippings (I got it good), the advice and things like the heat, light and water being turned on so you can grow healthy and become the man or woman that he raised you to be.


Good fathers don't always get the credit like mothers often do so let's honor them with carrying on a strong legacy!
