Mission Statement

  • This site has no agenda, and its author has no chip on his shoulder. He promises not to whine about "fatherhood equality," and he'll do his best not to sound superior. He is, afterall, just a dad. Instead, he promises to tell good stories about his three kids. That's about it.

What a beautiful tribute to a great man.

I'm very impressed with the way your entire family handled such a sad time. The way you told your children, especially, was very profound.

Thank you for sharing and I'm very sorry for your family's loss.


I'm so sorry. He sounds like an amazing man.


I found your page from my Google Alert for Pneumonia and sat with tears streaming down at your beautiful words and tribute. He sounded like a wonderful father and just the kind of man I feel sure will be looking over my sister who passed away this year. I love your closing comment.....He wont be missed--he will be remembered. That is what everyone who has lost someone dear really wants...for them to be remembered and not forgotten. Peace and blessings to your family.

What a great post for a great man. I'm sorry to hear of your loss, but a post like this preserves a lot of wonderful memories.


My condolences. Your words are a wonderful tribute. Sharing those memories will make him immortal.


I'm so sorry. It sounds like he was a great father, father-in-law, and grandfather. That was a beautiful tribute to him. Reading it made me feel like I knew him myself. I'm thinking of you and Leslie and the kids.


A beautifully written tribute. My condolences to you and your family.


I'm glad I stopped by today to read this touching post. You were all blessed to have known a man with so much love in his heart and pride in his family. I'm sorry for your family's loss.


That was a beautiful tribute to a man who is very obviously loved. I'm thinking of you and your family and hoping your memories ease your grief.

I clicked my way through several "Dad" blogs to find yours.

What a beautiful tribue. You truthfully brought tears to my eyes as I read it (and that is not easy to do).

I too have a wonderful father-in-law, and have never really considered his mortality. I will (as a result of reading your post) be sure to not take that for granted.

Thank you.



Thank you so much for sharing this. I was deeply touched. We lost my grandfather last April so it hit very close to my heart.


Great work.
