Of course, I was mostly stoned at the time.

Take it easy, Matt. Old boots keep on walking, as they should.

Well, the funeral's today.
I'm trying to keep strong, but I feel a bit of a mess inside.

I'd like to sincerely thank everyboy who's contributed to this thread and those responsible for making it sticky.
It's really comforting to know I have some really good friends here.
Thankyou very much for your support.

Sorry man and I know exactly what you're going through.

I lost my father to heart problems many years ago.

Take care.

I fell apart any number of times during my mother's sickness and eventual death. If I have any advice, let it out. I found it helped incredibly.

Good luck, Matt.

So sorry I missed this thread until now. All my sympathies and best wishes. Hopefully you're taking comfort from your good memories, of which it sounds like there are plenty. Next glass I lift will be accompanied with thoughts of fond farewell- for your father and for mine.

Shit... that sucks.

My old man got married for a second time 3 years ago, when he was already past his eighties...

Fully knowing (and seeing more an more) how old he is, I dread the day I'll be a 'complete' orphan.

My condolences, Matthew. :|
