  • Sadly, I don't miss him very much. I'm happier not being around him as he is a very angry man and doesn't approve of how I'm leading my life. He's ill though and I wish things were different but I guess it's not the right time yet.

  • There's a lot of dads and granddads sitting in nursing home without their family near by. My own daughter lives 600 miles from here. Though we've been trying to get a transfer, in eights months, we have yet to find a place willing to accept my insurance, so I sit here alone. Consider spending the morning as a volunteer at a nursing home. Contact the activities director about it. They have someone from the dept there every day. Make a list of the reasons why you appreciated him and read it to the men. I wrote this to "Dear Abby" for Father's Day, March 19, 2005. APPRECIATION FOR JOB WELL DONE IS WHAT FATHERS WANT TO HEAR DEAR ABBY: Today is Father's Day, so why don't we try to do more for dear old Dad than give him the usual greeting card that promotes the idea that all dads are imbeciles, followed by a collect call to see what he thought of the card. (Father's Day is the day when the most collect calls are made.) We should treat our fathers the way we treat our mothers on Mother's Day and show them we appreciate them for being there. Yes, you probably tell your father all the time that you love him, but the minds of men work differently. Anyone can say "I love you," but as men, knowing that we are appreciated for a job well done is what really gets us teary-eyed. Something else you can do -- especially you sons out there (but daughters can do it, too) -- is to make sure Dad has been to the doctor for a checkup, including depression screening. This can go a long way toward making sure he's here on Father's Day next year. I wasn't raised by my father, but by a stepfather. Although we did not see eye-to-eye on many things, I would not be the person I am today if it were not for him. This man, who spent years climbing on top of heavy construction equipment to prepare the ground for many of the homes, businesses, roads and highways of Southern California, now finds it difficult to get into a car. Although none of the houses or roads have his name on them, they are all testaments to his life and the lives of men like him. So today, let's do something extra for Dad, without him pulling out his wallet to pay for it. -- George McCasland, Overland Park, Kansas *************************************************************** Remember, there's a lot of us fathers sitting in nursing homes whose children live too far away to visit. Contact an activities director about volunteering Sunday morning. Read a list out loud about why you appreciated your father.
  • definitely, both my parents have been gone for yrs
