My Dad passed away last night at midnight after a long battle with lung, heart and kidney problems at 86 1/2 yrs. He's the one who got me onto the 'bots way back when, always there to play with the kids, war vet, worked 3 jobs and never ever complained about anything and would do anything for anyone. He'll still be with my brother and I and the family always. He's the one on the far right. My bow-tied brother is the train guy with a two bedroom apartment wall-to-wall, still has that old train and a few dozen others. Dad really taught us to have fun and he's finally at rest. Makes us realize what's really important.

Very Sorry. It's awful losing a great dad, even when it's their time. Mine died at 79 six years ago. I think of him every day. Give yourself time to feel miserable. It may take a while.
