Today I remembered something that my Dad said: We were on the base, and we saw a sign that said, "Free Leann Womack Concert."  "I didn't know that she was in captivity," he said.  He did have a good sense of humor.

Nov. 9th would have been my father's 77 birthday.

He died in 1975 Jan 21.

I had a friend of the family my moms friend after my dad died and he abused me.   I also had a close male friend about15 years older than me who was like a dad he did not abuse me.

Guess not.

Anyone have any comments of having a step-dad after their father died?

Comment by Edward Warden on September 13, 2014 at 4:49pm

I plan to mention this in church tomorrow: My mother said that, after my father died, she went to see her pastor, Jonathan, to talk about her grief.  Jonathan told her, "Sharon, Ed would come back now, even if he could.  He's with God now, praising God in God's presence."  I think that's the place to be, and I'm glad that my father is there."

I felt the same way towards my father Ryan.  and the 40 years have not changed any of that.

Coming up on the 6 month mark / half a year since my father's passing. In ways it seems like there has been some peace with things, in other ways it's still like day 1. I know this is completely individual for all men, some of us share common threads in losing a Dad.  Mine was that event that seemed like it would never happen..he seemed invincible growing up, looked up to him in many ways.  He was the patriarch, my best friend and hero....could talk to him about things that no one else would understand. He was my man. SO I've had to move along this summer without him and just try to find a sort of peace in memories and thoughts, i know I had to sustain life as my kids and family needed me, so that has helped me get through. Every day is different, time moves us on. I hope everyone else is doing okay..

Great memories.

Comment by Michael J. K. on September 9, 2014 at 2:40pm

coming soon upon the 40th anniversary of my father's death Jan 21 1975, I am remembering what a great dad he was. I am so grateful for him and all he did for me while he was alive.

So I've started a martial arts club...

So me and a group of friends have started an amateur Bartitsu society and we're pretty much teaching ourselves the martial art among elements of other fighting styles. While not ideal we're doing well, perfecting the techniques. I organise the activities and exercises and try to explain the basics of the technique from the instruction book.I was just wondering if anyone else has done something similar to this? If so do you have any tips of running these sort of clubs or interesting stories of…See More
