    Today is my dad's birthday

    He would have been 54 years old. He died way too soon on us. I still can't believe that god took him at such a young age ( 52 ). He didn't deserve to get pancreatic cancer. He was in great shape. I don't get how such a nice and loving dad got this terrible disease. It just breaks my heart. I miss him deeply

    Tony,
    You're right, it was way too soon. As I've told you before, you have carried on in a way that I know he is incredibly proud of. I know now that hole in your heart never really goes away, we will always miss them and not understand some things. I hope it helps that you have people here who understand what you are feeling more than you know.

    We are all here for you and with you Tony. I miss my dad deeply too and I guess it will always be that way. It's what we do to carry on after that is important, and I think your dad would be proud of you and your mom.

    The School Safety Agent at the school where my mom works ( he was also my dad's friend ) planted these flowers in honor of my dad. How nice. He was loved by many. RIP =(

    It sure seems that you are part of a very supportive community and that your dad was incredibly special to many people!
