    I want to share this comment that I received via Google from C Philips:

    My Dad passed 8 months ago in my hands. I bent down and kissed him goodbye and I knew at that moment he was gone but also that he had equipped me more in my 36 years of life than many get in 86 years of life.

    I joined the United States Air Force as a medic at 18 years old. Did my Dad serve? No, my Mom did. My Dad said “Mija, are you sure”? And when I was stationed in Japan and scared and had seen too much my Dad hopped on a plane and flew to give me comfort. My Dad was there to teach me to change a tire, read a book, play basketball, handle disappointment, to love passionately. I could write a book on my Dad. He didn't have to love me, he chose too and I didn't always make myself lovable.

    My favorite memory with my Dad is just laying with him watching Lakers/Raiders games or playing basketball in the backyard. It wasn't all the adventures or special occasions. It was the down time that mattered most.
