So guys, I've been kinda dormant here compared to normal. It's been one heluva long month. It is with the heaviest of hearts to spread the word of my dad passing away today at 1522hrs due to complications from Covid at 74 years old.
It started Thanksgiving weekend kith kidney stones, then on December 10th he had a procedure done to minimize it. Unfortunately he aspirated coming out of anesthesia which triggered pneumonia to start, but he had already caught Covid. He felt like crap and went back to the hospital on the 16th and never came home. It basically shut everything down, and he said he'd fight to come home. He declined rapidly over the past few days, and peacefully went to heaven.
He was a Vietnam Veteran and super proud of what he did, taught me about wrenching, loved and was loved by everybody he met. He will be laid to rest at Fort Knox Veteran Cemetery with full military honors.. He will be missed dearly, he was my best friend. RIP good sir, see ya on the other side.

My heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies Scott. I’m very close with my dad too, and I can’t imagine going through that. Stay strong brother, and as I said this morning, don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sorry you lost your Dad, Scott. My Mom passed in 1994, Dad in 2013, In-laws in 2007 and 2016. Many of us understand your grief. Sounds like he did some living, some people die without ever having really enjoyed living. PM if you need to talk.

Sorry to hear bud. I know all too well how you are feeling, as many here do.

I know it's a surreal and almost numbing right now. Hang in there, cherish those memories, stay strong for your kiddos, but allow yourself to grieve, cry, decompress, clear your mind.

But most of all, celebrate his life, a life so well lived, with all it's blessings.

You have my number, please reach out, no matter the hour.
