    my father passed away today from a long battle with congestive heart failure.these last few weeks were pretty hard to deal with.he was a great man and introduced me to hunting and the outdoors at a very young age.we spent alot of time together hunting and testing loads at the range.lately here on lrh i may have been a little mean to a few guys and i apologize for behaving badly.one goes thru alot of different emotions when something like this happens and you don't realize how much of an ass your being to people.just wanted to let everyone know that i am sorry .

    Sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how tough this has been, and don't want to find out.

    Sorry to hear about your dad. In a man's world it's pretty hard to lose your dad and friend. We do so much together. I think he'd be proud of you for sharing your feelings with your comrades here. A father just wants his son to be happy and enjoy his life. l'll bet he's pulling for you now even if he can't be here in person, his spirit lives on. God Bless, he knows.

    thank you guys for the kind words.my hats off to you judd for still offering condolances after the way i was with you.i had no idea how mean i was until i read some of my older posts.i guess watching dad suffer was tearing me up so much i was taking it out on everyone.my dad was a kind hearted,easy going man and i need to be more like him. dad was old school and didn't like computers,but if he would have ever joined the forum he would had some good stories to tell.

    My condolences to you and you're family. You are probably more like your father than you think and it's beginning to show as your post above reflects. Sorry for your loss!

    I've lost 2 dads in my life. My own and my wifes whom I loved like my own. It is a gut wrenching experience. I remember the preacher at my wifes fathers funeral saying to us may you find peace. There's nothing anybody can say to ease your pain but I'll pass those words on to you. May you and your family find peace. It will take time but you will and then you'll be able to reflect back on what a great man he was without such a heavy heart. Life is about the memories and stories we make every day. It's all that's left so all we can do is make as many great memories as we can and serve those we've lost by sharing the great stories they left behind. Feel free to share a story with us about your father. He'd probably like that.
