How lovely your story of a man who truely lived his life to the fullest. Your father sees you and you will feel his presence often in your life. My father visits me often to give me comfort when I'm lonely or afraid. He was crippled during my childhood but he gave me more then money he gave me his love and support, I am who I am today because of him. May you receive comfort by remembering him and his love.

You are lucky to have loved and honored your dad. He will always be with you and embrace his spirit in times when you might need his strength and energy.You are lucky.

your father sounds like a wonderful man and the world is a better place because he was a part of it. Blessings to you and your family in your grief.

I share your frustration at not being there when your father passed on.
The same thing happened with my father, he was an incredible proud man, with great honor and success in his life.yet it was hard for him to be physical and close with his 6 children (i am the 2nd oldest of the 6).
When he was dying I went on a field trip 50 miles away and I was confident that I would be there for him on his passing. But, as fate would have it, he died, virtually over night and my family didnt tell me as he was dying and they told me an hour after he had died, by way of a mobile all, which made me feel really helpless, and as you said, I wanted to be there to help him on his way, and I felt cheated out of that.
I made my way hope, seriously distressed to kiss him, as he had died and to cry, as best I could.
I sympathise with what you are feeling although everyones grieving is different, please let me offer you my suport. in kinship and hope.
