Folks Of Interest My dad passed away.

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by mad mikey, Oct 17, 2021.

  1. Hello brother and sister HAMBers. Just wanted to tell you all that my dad passed away this weekend. He was a very kind and generous person who always put family first. He was not involved with cars or hot rods during his life, but loved my little coupe and supported all I do and have done with it. I have to look out for my mother now more then ever. I may not be on here for a while.

    I'm very sorry, Mr. Mikey. You're in our thoughts and prayers and we're here for you.
    It's heartwarming to hear you refer to your father as very kind and generous and that he always put family first.
    Exactly as it should be.
    Strength and peace to you, brother. God bless you and your family. - Rick

    Deepest sympathy to you and your Mother, Mikey.
    I had a similar situation when my Dad passed away. He was not a car guy but served as my machinist and supported me, always.
    Will keep you in my prayers!

    Man, I'm sorry to hear this. Our fathers are the first and most lasting male influence in our lives. Glad that you had a real relationship with him until the end. Your HAMB brothers will be here when you return. Gonna make time to do something with my son today.

    Yes this is part of life. My dad told me that if he sees me crying over his head stone at the cemetery, when I could be out enjoying life, he'll come down and haunt me LOL.... My dad was my hero like your dad was to you.

    It's all part of growing up and becoming the man your father wanted you to become..

    Sorry for your loss. Losing our dads leaves a huge hole. It’s good you had a good relationship with your father. I was blessed in that area too. Some are not so fortunate. Hold on to those good memories, keep your chin up, and watch after your mom. You will turn into your father sooner than you think. Prayers for you all, Ron.

    Sorry to hear this Mike. It's hard to loose your Dad, especially those that had a great relationship. Support your Mom and remember the good times. It's amazing how the memories will make things better.

    My prayers go out to you and your family. I never had a close or good relationship with my dad but the best advise I have take the best of your father and those memories and pass that on to your kids and grandkids!
