Read your archived post. That’s very cool that you have that kind of tangible link. Wonderful to be able to hold on to him that way.
(AIM booted me earlier BTW)
Hit me the same way reading it tonite as it did the first time. Dammit.
He was certainly quite special, but of course you don’t need me to tell you that. I know, from his putting up with us over at your place all the time, from putting up with your/our abuse of his equipment, our junk all through his garage, and a hundred other memories. I know that I probably spent almost as much waking time at your place as mine during those years, so he had to put up with me under foot, too.
I always enjoyed listening to his Georgian drawl. And everything else, too….
That was a lovely tribute to your father. I wasn’t around to read it the first time but have now downloaded the mp3s. As soon as the kiddies are asleep we’ll be listening.
My dad’s also a bit of a honkey-tonker – the guy sounds just like Willie Nelson. For years I would tell people, when Willie would come on the radio, “That’s my dad!” and honestly believe it.
People like us are lucky in that we’ll always have songs that will forever “belong” to our fathers. It’s cold comfort, yes, but comfort nonetheless.
You got me all tearing up and stuff. I too have just passed one of those painful dates and I hate to tell you this, but after eighteen years it doesn’t get any easier. I hope you handle these things better than I do.
wow. just … wow.
the mp3s are amazing too. i’m sorry for your loss, but what an awesome memory to have!
Wow. How wonderful that you have those mp3’s. Thanks for sharing. I wish I had some of my dad. It doesn’t get easier does it.
Thanks for sharing that, wow!
What are you trying to do?! Make me cry??
That was a very sweet post about your dad. I dread the day I lose either of my parents.
Sorry for your loss, but for what my opinion is worth, it’s a nice thing to set a memorial to a loved one like you did.
I personally think that a loved one should be celebrated for the life he/she had and not mourned because they are no longer here.
Personally, I’d like to be able to take my own advice…But that’s me.
**lights a candle**
PS: You rock!
I’m about the tenth person to say “wow”, but “wow”. Amazing tribute — and an incredible way to have memories.
Wow squared. Thanks for posting this.
