He was a special man, and so is his son!
My family & I will keep you in our prayers.

So sorry to hear the sad news, Rodney.
I can empathize totally, as I lost my mom last year at age 84.
You may never stop missing him but, it does get easier with time.
My thoughts and prayers are with you my friend.

Life's a breeze on a Goldwing...

My condolences, I cared for my mother for a few years until she moved into a professional care unit because we could no longer give the care she needed. It is difficult.

Rodney, I'm sure you have many fond memories of good years together. Those are the things you should keep foremost in your mind and heart. He was very fortunate to have had you as his son and caretaker.

My sympathies go to you and yours. Lost my dad on the 14th of May this year to pancreatic cancer so I know how you feel, sadly

Sorry to hear of your loss, not much else I can say that hasn't already been said, I actually read this last night and the combination of jetlag and emotion from people here hit me hard and I couldn't reply without welling up.
