This will be very short. This is for Every father of a child 8 to 80. Stop and tell Your Child that You love them! Don’t take time to be, or stay mad at Them for something that happened years before. I have two grown up Children, Tomorrow, I will bury one of My Own! Almost too hard to bear! Except the Saving Grace, is Holding Me UP We had a good relationship. I Am gratefull. Tell how much You care, and Love them. I will never hold My Son again! Tell Them Now!!!

-- Saved, and so grateful, consider who Created it ALL!!!

“I Love You” is a fraze you hear in my home countless times a day. Thank you for reminding me to make it “Countless + 1”....

I am so very sorry for your loss and I wont even pretend to know what you are going through. I hope and pray that I will never ever have to bare that pain. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

Very sorry to hear about the loss of your son. The loss of a child is the hardest thing a parent can possibly go thru. I know your pain and sorrow.
I lost my only son in 1991 because of the life style he chose. You are right about telling them you care. Do it everyday every time you feel the urge, let them know you are there!
My prayers and thoughts go out to you and your family.
