    Sorry to hear Ron, but great that he started you along with this hobby we all love. My dad turned 89 in November but this Covid crap keeps us physically apart as they live in a senior apartment complex that is locked down. He and my grandfather got me started in the hobby.

    Relationships can be fixed. Do your part to make it happen.

    Sorry to hear this. Will be thinking and praying for you and your family. The next few days aren’t easy. My dad passed Nov. 27th 14 years ago so this time of year is always tough. Regards, Randy

  25. I tied my Dad's oxygen bottle to the back of an old Harley and loaded him up for a ride through the Red Woods on his 80th birthday. That was July, he passed the following January. If you get the chance it is best to git er done. You really only get one day and he really only has one life.

    You done good. :cool:

    Ron,I'm very sorry to hear of your loss,when I read these things I look back at when I lost my dad at 24 years of age.I'm 66 now and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him.Every time I see one of my cars that I know he would have given anything to own I'm reminded of the sacrifices he made so we always had plenty .Every time I work on one of the cars I'm reminded and grateful of all the things he taught me and somehow I know he's very aware of where I'm at.It does get easier but I'll never forget. Ken
  29. Ron, please except my heart felt condolences, I wish I had the words to console you and ease the loss, Your dad did a great job raising you and instilled what is important, I'm sure he was proud of you and your accomplishments. HRP

    So sorry for your loss--prayers for you and family--cherish the memories. Lost mine in 78 at 59 years old. Still dwell on it. Think of him every time I use one of his old tools.
