    So sorry to hear about your loss.

    My father has been gone several years now. He was in the military for many years, and it was also hard for him to open up and show emotion and also could be somewhat abusive. I think that they were the product of their generation, when men were raised with the mindset that to be a real man one must work and provide for a family, but show little emotion. I am so glad for you that you were able to see another side of him before he was gone.

    Sorry to hear your sad new Little Rock Guy. You Father obviously lived an interesting life. Great song too.

    My condolences. From your writing in the opening post, it sounds like you have plenty of good thoughts and a deeper understanding of your father from your adult perspective. He sounds like something stereotypical out of the movies about strict or emotional-hiding military fathers. Your tribute has been received and appreciated. Good job.

    Condolences on your loss.

    The intensity of the hurt subsides over time, but it does take time...
