    I certainly understand how rough the holiday must have been for you. As we both know, the grieving just takes time.

    Again, thank you all for your caring and supportive ways.

    We got back home Sunday night, and I got to drive back with my son, who flew into Nashville from Denver. He decided to drive back with me from Tennessee and then he flew out of Kansas City to Denver. I helped me a lot to hang out with him.

    That said, reading all the posts that have been waiting for my return caused a little bit of moisture to suddenly appear in my eyes. I really do appreciate this Gretsch family, and all your kindness and support. You guys are indeed the best!

    Sorry for your loss.
    Sending lately but heartfelt all my sympathy to you and your family.

    (Still wonder how I could "like" your initial post, probably just a silly way to express sympathy).

    My sympathies to you and family.

    I lost my Father in May 2020 - he was 93 and had a happy life

    It sure is tough to lose our parents, even though they may have lived a long life. My mother lost my dad back in 1998, and missed him every day since then, so her time of missing him has ended. We can be grateful for their presence in our lives, and realize that there are many who are not so fortunate.

    I'm so very sorry. The support I've received recently on these forums while grieving has truly been wonderful. My thoughts are absolutely with you. What I've walked away with this past year having lost my father and nephew is there are lots of firsts coming. Each of those firsts get easier as they come. You're always remembering but the remembering brings on sadness slower and slower. My best to you and yours.

    Oh man, I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. It's always tough losing a parent. Both of mine are gone (Dad - 2002, age 80. Mom - 2019, age 95).

    If you needed any validation of the type of Father you have been, you have your answer. In your time of need, your son acknowledged your pain and decided to spend more time with you. That is every parent's dream to raise children that can realize where and when they are needed, and take action.
    I am sure your Mother raised you the same way, this proves that you are a great Father and have a wonderful son.
