That was a beautiful tribute to your dad, Chutz. I feel the same way about my dad.
I lost him when I was 18, but he was the one who I ran to for everything. My mom allowed him to be both mother and father to me. She was a good mom too, but I was his only child and he spoiled me a lot. When I was sick I ran to him and he nursed me back to health. He put me to bed at night and so on. I guess my dad was my hero too.
Thanks for the thread. Glad you are back. I am too now. Been sick with the stomach virus all week long.

Believe in yourself. Be kind to fellow humans and animals. Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help. I will be there.
