Well Bye...
2013-06-16 01:10:06 AM  
Happy father's day. Thanks for being such a great father.

/Lucky enough to be able to tell him tomorrow.
2013-06-16 01:16:01 AM  
Dad's in a box on top of the piano.

I think I said most of what needed to be said.  On father's day, probably thanks, again.  He was a good man. My mom and he were two parts of one person, and she wasted away after he died.

I miss my dad.
2013-06-16 01:19:28 AM  
thanks for leaving before you ruined me
2013-06-16 01:23:16 AM  
Happy Father's Day- please enjoy the book and set of whiskey glasses that I got for you.  Also, you need to follow through on your golf swing.  My God, man, we are not playing croquet here.
2013-06-16 01:24:08 AM  
Can you fix my car again?
2013-06-16 01:24:20 AM  
Thanks for adopting me. We've said everything that needed to be said, and I and the family have closure.

/dad died in May
//Miss ya dad ;-(
2013-06-16 01:24:34 AM  
I'm lucky my father is still alive. I know my life will go to hell once he's eventually gone. More than anyone else in my life.
2013-06-16 01:25:07 AM  
Thanks, mom.
2013-06-16 01:25:15 AM  
We talk every day and I love it.  I cant stand to think it wont be that way for much longer.  Thanks for busting your ass to give us opportunities.
2013-06-16 01:25:17 AM  
Did you ever get around to buying those cigarettes you went out for all those years ago?
2013-06-16 01:25:31 AM  
As a new father to Local Infant Son, I sometimes wonder what he'll wished to have said throughout his life-to-be and, for whatever reason, chose not to.

That said, I'm pretty sure that Local Dad knows everything he needs to know from me, but I'll be sure to call him tomorrow anyway.
2013-06-16 01:25:37 AM  
The last thing I said to mine, the last time I saw him, was "I love you." So, no regrets on what I didn't say. If her were still alive, I might tell him to suck it up and get some new hearing aids, because shouting things to him was getting a little uncomfortable...

He was a great guy. My mom must have missed him a lot, because she died a couple weeks ago, the day before what would have been their  64th anniversary. I'm guessing she just needed to celebrate it with him. I'm cool with that.
2013-06-16 01:25:47 AM  
I'll always love you, I'll always miss you and I'll always be grateful for all that you did for us.......
2013-06-16 01:26:14 AM  
Thank You, Dad,for the twisted humor and the appreciation of life and yes I'm taking my meds so I don't stroke out like you did.I miss you!
2013-06-16 01:26:18 AM  
I still don't have anything to say to my Dad. I doubt I ever will.
2013-06-16 01:26:44 AM  
Holy shiat!  It's a zombie!  Michele, throw me the gun and head for the basement!  I got this!
2013-06-16 01:27:58 AM  
"Miss you, dude."

Full disclosure: I love my father very much and got to straighten things out with him before he passed. So I feel very lucky about that. And as much as I love him, I also loved to annoy him. I don't know why, and I know it's wrong. He hated being called "dude", and got pissed when I told him inappropriate jokes that made him laugh. But I couldn't help myself.

Not a day goes by that I don't think about him and wished that he were here to see my accomplishments as well as answer life's questions. What I wouldn't do to hear him say, "I love you", and "Goddammit!".

Miss you, dad.
2013-06-16 01:28:09 AM  
farking Die already!

In a fire if possible.  You prick.
2013-06-16 01:28:47 AM  
The next thing I want to hear about you is that you're dead, preferably by fire - you've caused me nothing but pain and suffering.
2013-06-16 01:29:33 AM  
Do you like the new potted plant we put on your grave?

Also, can you help me with my taxes.
2013-06-16 01:29:39 AM  
see 2011 response.
2013-06-16 01:29:51 AM  
Thank you for getting me to watch Star Trek.  I fondly remember sitting down in the living room at 6pm for many a Saturday night and watching reruns of the original Star Trek series.  I did not know it at the time but this was the first step down the road to a lifelong love of science-fiction and fantasy.  Thank you, Pops.

PS  Thank you also for teaching me about camping and canoeing and hunting and carpentry and skiing and snowshoeing and far too many other things to remember.  More importantly, thank you for letting me be a kid.  You let me explore the world around me as I saw fit and you so long as I stayed out of trouble you did not interfere.  You were always there to patch up my cuts and bruises when I got hurt (and Thor knows that I fell out of my fair share of trees!) and were more than happy to help me out when I asked you for advice.
2013-06-16 01:30:09 AM  
Sometimes we get into ideals. We forget about our families and get more into religion. Years later we realize that it was bullshiat. You hurt me a lot, and farked with my head. I'm not gay; you should have known that from all the girls I snuck into the house. Your parents messed you up, and you took that anger out on me. BUT. Goddamn it - you are my dad, and I see (now) where your rage came from. You aren't a bad man, you were just really badly farked with. You weren't allowed to be who you wanted to be. So - I'm your kid, and an adult now. And we've been working on it - for years. So let's get lunch - I can actually spring! I love you.
2013-06-16 01:30:21 AM  
Dad, I'm getting married in a month and a half.  I wish you could meet her.  Her name is Miranda and you would think think the world of her.  I would empty my savings account in an instant if you could somehow spend an hour in her company, just so she could meet you the one time.  You would love each other, I am sure of it.

Mom has started dating another man after you died.  She waited a few years, so I think it's okay.  She's by herself now in that big house with us all graduated and grown, so she gets lonely.  My sister gets that, but I don't think my brother does.  He was always so defensive of you.

I miss you.

I never got to ask you the questions I want to now.  When I was younger, I was a stupid boy and I didn't care for fatherly wisdom.  Then you got sick and crazy, so I couldn't ask them even when I wanted to.

What I wouldn't give to sit down with you over a steak dinner and talk about life and what it means to be a good husband, a good man.

/is now crying
//I love you Dad
///I miss you
2013-06-16 01:31:09 AM  
Thanks for banging my mom.
2013-06-16 01:31:22 AM  
You were right when I was 15 and you said to me "You need a father, not a friend. You have enough friends."
It allowed us to be the best of friends later in life. Cheers to you, Dad. I hope to be as great as you were with my daughter.
2013-06-16 01:32:14 AM  
Thanks, you crusty ol' bastard. Now that I've been a dad for a while, I understand how hard you worked, what you sacrificed, and what a hellofa job you did. Your lessons paid off. I'm a good dad because you taught me how, and your grandkids have a good life because of you, too. You're a mean ol' so-and-so, but you done good and I appreciate it.
2013-06-16 01:32:14 AM  
For the last time, I don't know shiat about cars.  Get over it.
2013-06-16 01:32:41 AM  
I thought I told you never to call me here !!!

/when I called him
//normal is boring
2013-06-16 01:33:41 AM  
My Dad died suddenly after complications from elective surgery. Mostly because of incompetent pricks.

If I could, I'd tell him to lose 50 lbs and avoid surgery or just get the surgery done on the east coast, not the shiathole that is Las Vegas so that if they fark up, Mom wouldn't be hamstrung by malpractice limitation laws.
Love you, Dad.
2013-06-16 01:33:58 AM  
Irrelevant as he is dead.....and I am an atheist.

I have to settle for carrying a portion of his genes and leave it at that.

I will, however, have several drinks in his honor.
2013-06-16 01:34:18 AM  
I'll say Happy Father Day but in my mind I'll be thinking you're not that good of a dad but I'll wish you anyway.
2013-06-16 01:34:57 AM  
I wouldn't say anything.

Never met him. The first time I saw his face was when he was in a casket. Didn't say anything then either.
2013-06-16 01:35:33 AM  
Mine is BBQing for us tomorrow. The two tshirts I bought can't even begin to express the gratitude I have for him, especially after the long and winding road to maturity that seemed to take me longer to finish than most. Thanks for paying for my kids preschool, and my apartment, and always being there to bail me out when I get in a bind. Love y
2013-06-16 01:35:52 AM  
Thanks for putting up with mom for so long and not ditching her. Thanks for sending me that RW Southern book and for introducing me to history, philosophy, and tennis. And thanks for not being the stereotypical Asian Dad.

Also, why the hell did you tell me not to go into software like yourself? That's where all the money is for loners like us nowadays.

/also, I miss you so much. What do I do with mom now?
2013-06-16 01:36:10 AM  
Has anyone made the, "Keep holding your breath, we'e digging as fast as we can!" joke?
2013-06-16 01:37:50 AM  
We'll chat about my job, his retirements, my brother, my mother baseball (Tigers), cars and a few other things.

When I dropped out of college (and started my first software company), I moved across the country and for the next 20 years I didn't call or stay in touch that often.  After my marriage to my serially cheatin' ex finally went away, I made it a point to get to know my dad better, as much man to man as man to son.  I have to say it's been really worthwhile and I still look forward to our weekly chats.

I end every call by telling him I love him, and when he worries that he didn't do a good enough job (had me when he was 22, and I didn't come with an instruction manual, like dads through out time he feels like maybe he could have done better), I specifically address the things he worried about and tell him how and why he did good - because he did - my brother and I turned out pretty darn well, successful, and happy, with pretty good childhoods.

So if something were to happen to him, I'll be very sad, but I won't have any regrets for things left undone or unsaid.

You want another beer?
2013-06-16 01:38:46 AM  
I hope you die a slow and painful death, asshole.
2013-06-16 01:38:56 AM  
I miss you.
2013-06-16 01:39:07 AM  
When I was younger I wish I would have had the presence of mind to kill you myself, it would have caused a lot of trouble but a lot less than what you caused yourself. Thank God you were too stubborn and stupid to wear a seatbelt.
2013-06-16 01:39:22 AM  
Did I ever make you proud? And not" I'm always proud of you" bullshiat...Did I ever REALLY make you proud.

/miss you dad
2013-06-16 01:39:44 AM  
Dear Dad...

I want my sh*t back that you stole.
And quit telling people you were in Vietnam... CAUSE YOU WERE NOT. You were in Crete and no where near a PT boat and you were NOT a captain of your imaginary PT boat either.  You are such a prick.

Oh... do us all a favor. Go ahead and take the "Hurry-Up-And-Die" pills.

Love you,
Cowgirl Toffee
2013-06-16 01:40:06 AM  
Good job, old man.

We live roughly 6000 miles apart and don't get to see one another all that often. He'll be 80 later this year, so I'll make the trip. For the first time, I'm thinking this could be the last time.
2013-06-16 01:41:32 AM  
Love ya, Dad.
2013-06-16 01:41:47 AM  
Dad....let's smoke a bowl and catch up.
2013-06-16 01:42:03 AM  
My father's dead, but here goes anyway:

Happy Father's Day, "Dad". I hope you're burning in hell you goddamn worthless racist piece of shiat!
