At 7:45 PM December 4th, he took his last breath. He would have been 81 on Dec 30th.
My dad taught me everything. How to shoot, hunt, trap, fish, work on cars, sharpen a knife, to be responsible, and a million more things. He was my hero my entire life. No way I could ever explain what he meant to me.
Rest in peace Dad. I love you.
He heard you...

Your words here show me how much pain you feel from the loss of him, and really hits home with me as one who has already lost both my Mom and Dad.

I was speaking to my Mom on the phone when she passed, she had been unresponsive for about a week, but when I called her, and was on the phone telling her it was ok to go if she wanted, my sister told me that she couldn't speak, but mouthed, "I love you" and she then was gone..

I'm truly sorry for your loss..
