My dad died yesterday.
He was 65 and had become a hero to me. A few months back, when we almost lost my wife and newborn son, my dad came and stayed with us. He took care of my kids -- kept them fed and feeling loved -- while I was taking care of things in the hospitals.
He dropped everything for a month... to make sure he was there for me and our kids.
When I needed help more than any other time in my life... he was there. And he was amazing.
I love you, dad.
@lunduke Such amazing people like that are rare, and it's even harder when we lose them. I wish you and your family great luck and happiness despite your loss, stay strong.

@lunduke My condolences, and sorry to see you're having a rough time online atm.
The chap who stepped up to the plate to be my dad is a similar age, and I know how much losing him would suck. :(
It sounds like you have an awesome family though that will rally around and support each other through what must be a tough time.
@lunduke this was the first thing I saw when I logged on. I know all too well the pain of loss (including the loss of a child) and it's always hard to know what to say. I hope the good memories of your Dad live on in you and your children. May you all find peace and comfort during this time. Please accept my sincerest condolences
@lunduke I can't even begin to understand how you must feel. I've lost a lot in my life, but so far not a parent.
I hope you will be okay.
Your story reinforce my point of view about family
Good to hear those kind of human values nowadays ✊
@lunduke I wish that there was something to say but words seem inadequate. Know that your online family grieves with you especially for one who died so young. Your faith and your friends will help you through this
@lunduke my condolences to you and your family.
@lunduke I’m sorry to hear that your father passed. Though I can’t imagine how hard things were a few months back, it sounds like it provided a great opportunity to build fond memories with your dad in his last months.
Thank you for your positivity before the difficult life events you’ve experienced lately. All my best to you and your family. Good vibes, prayers if those are welcome.
And thanks for the joy you bring to all your public work. I hope we’re able to send some of that back your way.
@lunduke my deepest condolences to you and your family. I believe that those who pass on from this life are dead in body only. In spirit, they are still very much alive and near to us. I am sure your father is close and watching over your family still.
@lunduke Condolences to you and your family. I also lost a close family member a few months back. Those who pass on still live on through the impact and memories they made with those around them. Sounds like your dad was an amazing guy and made a really positive impact in your life. Hope you can take the time you need to work through everything.
@lunduke Condolences, stay strong.
@lunduke so sorry to hear that, Richard. Condolences from an internet stranger.
@lunduke my condolences. 65 is too young!

Your words are very touching. You have my condolences. Sounds like he was a great guy. All the best to you and your family.
@lunduke Oh, that's sad, just cheer up Bryan.
I'm not really a religious person, I can't give you quite good advice on that way, but if you trust your beliefs, they may be reality.
@lunduke My condolences. My dad has always been my hero.
