PostSubject: I Lost My Father   Thu Oct 04, 2012 10:02 am

When I was groing up my father was never there so my god father took over when I was young and became my father. He taught me everything, including what it means to be a man. Late last week I lost him in a car accident, I always thought that men never cried, and I had never seen him cry, but for the first time that I can remember I broke down and I cried. Then I got a half hour notice to pack up and get to Louisiana, because I found out I was getting emergency leave, which I was so grateful for because normally they do not give it in this situation. He was a great man, and he was always strong even after five back surgeries, and we never hugged or said I love you but we knew we did, and he would work me like a mule everyday so I would not grow up to be weak.

Awful news. Hang in there, brother. You're more of a man for acknowledging love doesn't always come in the form of hugs, kisses and soft words. Sometimes it's intent, acknowledgement, application and end-result. To have that in a father (or father-like figure), that's the stuff, right there. Very sorry to hear you lost a good one.

What a year this has been for so many people. No

I'm so sorry for your loss. Especially considering the tragic and sudden circumstances. I lost my mother very suddenly last year so I truly do sympathise.
He sounds like a man to truly be proud of.

My sincere condolences for your loss. Because you cried makes you no less a man. I'm sure in his own way, on his own time he shed some tears.

Very sorry to hear this. Losing a Dad is a life changing experience. Don't be afraid to grieve and cry.

Crying or Very sad
