    My Dad passed away this morning. He was 91 years old. For the last 5 years he has done nothing more than miss my Mom after her passing.
    When I was little, I wanted to marry him. He looked like Roy Rogers. He was always my hero.
    He was a good man. A man whose name and reputation would open doors for us in the community.
    Family was the most impotant thing in his life and we knew it.
    He was a bricklayer...he was my Dad.

    I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my Dad in May of 2007 and I still miss him, he was 86. In his last few years one of his greatest joys was standing at the door greeting people as they came into church. I know that now he is standing just inside of heaven's gate shaking hands with your father.
