Quick thumbnail of the sort of guy my dad was.

He was already on dialysis three times a week from the damage diabetes did. Missing toes, the whole horror show. We were watching TV, and my cat was being his usual self, purring and jumping on us and being all sorts of adorable.

And manly man factory worker Dad said, "You know what? If I caught anyone being mean to this cat, I'd chase them down and beat their asses, even sick as I am."

What an ol' softie.

Thanks for teaching my that its OK to have pride in what you do, be it blue collar or white collar.

Thanks for showing me that mundane things can be marvelous when expressed in math.

Thanks for showing me how a bad marriage works!, Because mine works well by doing the exact opposite of many of your choices.

Thanks for cutting the cord on that damned TV and tossing a book at me when I needed it most.

Thanks for teaching me how to cook and admitting that I was better at it than you were!

Especially thanks for saying the night before you died that you loved me and that you had faith that I would do well.

I miss your wisdom. your humor, your incredible intellect, but most of all I miss you Dad. See you on the other side Pop!

Thanks for telling everyone in the family that you try to call me constantly but I never pick up. Please try to learn how Caller-ID works. Unfortunately, I am the only one that truly knows you are full of shiat.

I'll be grilling some steaks tonight, because I like steak and I am a good cat daddy. I won't be calling you, however. Also, tuna for ALL MY KIDS!

Dear Dad,

Why didn't you divorce your crazy, destructive, mental wife and take me away with you?

Why did you let her do the things she did to me?

I guess dying was your way out...but what about me? I have had to deal with her for the rest of my life, and she's 96 now.

It should have been her, Dad. And I would have helped.

Miss you, sweet man. Always.

13 and a half months ago, I called my dad to say hi. We hadn't spoken in at least 2 years, and not more then 4 times in the last decade. He was high and didn't know who I was. I told him I'd call back in the morning. I didn't call back.

13 months ago, a detective called me to identify his body. He had hung himself.

So, I guess all I can say is I really wished I had called him back.

Don't know what I'd say. He beat me everyday as a kid (broke my nose on the way to church once when I was 8 and broke some ribs for not doing my math homework when I was 10) but that's how kids were raised back then. He also has spent his entire life savings bailing me out of jail and paying for lawyers for me since then. Everytime I screwed up he was there for me. And trust me, it was a weekly occurrence. He also adopted me when I was an infant.

The guys I work with hear my stories and can't believe I still talk to him (cause of the beatings), but I love and respect him and wouldn't want any other father. He spent 36 years teaching handicapped children. The only times I ever saw him cry was the day I left for basic training and when one of his students passed away. He's been a damn good father and has gone above and beyond what most parents would put up with in my 42 years (he bailed me out of jail AGAIN last year).

I think he knows that I love him. We don't say stuff like that to each other, but I'm pretty sure he knows it. Hell, when he had to drive me every month for 5 years to see my parole officer (1 hour round trip) we never spoke in the car, but one time some guy cut him off as he was driving his (at the time 34 year old son) and I jumped out and beat that guy with a hammer. Of course he had to pay my bail again.

Love ya Dad!

And I promise to make better decisions. And thanks for all the help/time with your grandaughter. You're a special man.
