Another good man gone...my Dad
Posted by tempestjohnny on Sunday, April 5, 2015 9:45 AM

I lost my Dad Friday night.  I am who I am because of him. My love of working with my hands is from everything he taught me.  He truly was a jack of all trades.  He was the one that started me modeling when I was 7.   I will miss him always.  John R Hawley Sr 12/19/33-4/3/15.  

Thanks

Crap!

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I'm about to go see mine, who has no clear idea who I am.

Take care, TJ.

I am sorry for your loss... I hope that the pain of his passing is eventually surpassed by all the memories of happy times that you shared together. All in good time. He will always live on in your heart and memory.

My most deepest sympathies, johnny. I love my dad with all my heart. I'm extremely blessed to still have him and my mom here with me. The mere thought of losing him nearly causes me to break down. I know I'll probably have to deal with that someday, and much too soon. I relate to everything you said about your dad. Everything that is good and right about me is because of mine. May your grief be short, and, as stik said, be supplanted by nothing by good memories. God bless

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  Mine showed me that family came first, then devotion to your job of choice. He worked for the same company for 50 years.  I followed in his footsteps by working for that same company for 36 years, only retiring early for health reasons.  I know he's proud of all that I accomplished there.  I still think of him every day.

Really sorry for your loss. We'll all go through it, if we haven't already. Nothing is certain but death. Eternal life lies in the memories and legacy that you leave. And I'm sure that, in that regard, your Dad is already immortal.  Smile

Tempestjohnny- i know how you feel, and offer you my deepest sympathy.  My Dad was a wonderful father, he passed away in 1980 and I still miss him deeply.  I'm now at about the same age as  he was when he died.  It is a strange feeling, I  hope I will meet  him again when the time comes.

I find myself at the age where you start losing too many friends and family and it's not easy.

My friend, I am so sorry for your loss.  I lost my mom last year, and it does get a bit easier as time goes by, but you will miss them forever.  That's the price of love.  May God grant you father eternal rest and may he grant you and your family comfort and peace.
