The last time i seen him was the summer of 91.
A lot of things come to mind at this time.
The times we had, the things we never did together.
He never got to see his grandson, we never got to attend a football game.
The hardest part is never getting to say goodbye to him.
In his suffering he asked about me many times and i thought of him.
It hurts to know that i will never see him again or my son will never meet him.
I'm just asking for support from some of you, it would make me feel a lot better.
Lynch...I'm sorry to hear of your news.
I do know somewhat how you feel as I found out a year later that my natural father (who was an alcoholic, too) passed away. That was back in 2001.
Though you never were able to 'say' goodbye, you still have the opportunity to take the good things from him and allow them to live on in you and your son. You will be able to show your son the good things about your father!
Always remember that our loved ones who have passed live on in us and the memories we hold close to!!
My thoughts and prayers are with you!!
