I feel your pain. Been without mine for 6 years. Although the pain doesn't completely go away, it will diminish some and the good memories will take over.

Ron - I understand. Like Ellen said - the pain never goes away but it does subside and the good memories take over. I lost my step-dad over 35 years ago and the things he taught me remind me of him every day. Remember the good times and cherish them my friend.

Ron,
I never knew my Dad (killed in WWII when I was an infant) but I had very strong relationship with my Grand-dad. I feel your pain. I think of Grandpa about every day, things he taught me, told me, did with me, etc. As long as you have the memories, he will always be with you.

i know i have great memories. this is the time of year him and i was all fired up and ready to hunting. now camps empty without his presence. no one to come and bang on my camper door a 5:30 in morning and say "GET UP !" and always have breakfast almost ready. i guess it'll be grits and oatmeal or little debbie cakes for breakfast now. he spoiled me with that and made sure i had time to make it to my tree stand before daylight even if he didn't. i want to pick up the phone and just call him but thats not possible anymore and will take time to get over that. thanks for the support and i ask you to keep us in your prayers.

Ron,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your Dad, and I'm sorry I missed this post earlier. Being out on this job site without a computer put me out of touch to some degree.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of your family. Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you.
I lost my Grand-dad in 94 and I still miss him to this day. It took a while for the good memories to come but they will, hang in there we're all pulling for you.

Ron W.
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Ron:

My Dad and I had our fair share of troubles... he lost his Dad when he was 9, just as WW2 started, so he grew up without one, and never learned how to be a Dad, but he did his best with what tools he had. Like I said, we had our troubles.. but I miss him terribly. Not a day goes by that I do not think of him. I lost him in 96.. it has been 12 years and the pain is still as sharp today as it was back then. It never goes away, but you learn to remember the good, cherish those memories and then accept that you will see him again. For me that is the only way I can get through it.

I keep a couple of tunes in my head a lot that remind me of what I have with my own son..

Mike Rutherford's best seller -- The Living Years (Mike and the Mechanics), is a prime example of what we need to do, we need to talk to our parents/children etc., and not the little things get in the way.

Same with Cat's In the Cradle... very telling lyrics about what NOT to do.. yet what we end up doing anyways...

I keep them both in my brain, they are reminders of what I missed the most with my Dad, what I was able to tell him before he died, and what I want my son to remember about me when my time comes...

You and yours are in our families prayers, and the Lord will help you get through this...

Dear Ron,

I am so sorry to read of your loss, and also that I missed this sad news until this morning. And thank you so much Stacey for posting.

Ron, I know you're hurting right now and there's nothing I can say that will change that. But I know how you feel. Like others have posted, I was not blessed with having a good father, (he bagged out on us kids in the very worst of ways), yet I was very blessed to have received a wonderful father when I met the love of my life, Jeanine.

From the time I was seventeen years old, Jeanine's dad was as much my dad as hers. He and I golfed and worked together all the time, and that is where we talked, pondered what was and what might be, and where I learned to be a good husband, father and friend. Jeanine and I used to joke that if anything happened between us, we wouldn't be sure whose side he'd be on! But fortunately for us, he never had to make that choice, and was an unbelievebly great father to us both. Golf has never been the same since for me, but I'm still working on it with my son and son-in-law, who loves the game, but plays mostly with his father.

So Ron my good friend, now it's time for you to get to work: Work on searing those wonderful memories of the best times into your heart so they will live there forever. Work on continuing those same memories with Robert, and for the kids. When Victor (or later, the little guy!), goes hunting with you, it will now be your turn to get up early to cook breakfast, so that Victor can sleep a little late. Don't worry, Grump will be right there by your side, and in your heart.

And most importantly Ron and Stacey...hold on now to each other's heart. Hold it gently and with care. Make this one of those crossroad moments in your lives that brings you ever closer together. It is no matter that life is not perfect; but it is your job to work together to make it as much so as possible.

I'm here brother,

Charles

and you must always have a smile in your heart and on your face. To get you started out with one, just remember, you can't just cook chili and hot cornbread, dude!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm here also, brother.

While thinking about Grump alot tonight, knowing he would be seeing all of the grandbabies and what they dressed up like for Halloween & teasing them and trying to trick them out of their candy, I decided to revisit this post. As I sit here with tears in my eyes and a smile on my face, I realize just how special you guys are. I am sad and frustrated at the same time. It has not been easy and it is hard right now for us without him. I know things will ease up up eventually but my heart does not know that. Thank you for all your kind words!
