It's a weird day for me.

It's father's day, my birthday and my wife's birthday(she is 6 hours older).

So I need to recognize and honor my elderly father, and make sure my wife has a good day; while as a father, accept the attention which comes along with both days.

It's an enjoyable day..but weird!!

Mine of liver cancer. Never drank either. He did drink a lot of Dr. Peppers though. Maybe that got him.

I'm sure that you've been told this many times throughout your lifetime, but I'm totally serious when I say that your life story at the beginning is really sad, it makes me feel sad for you anyway. I lost my daddy when I was 9 from a really massive heart attack. His heart attack was so severe that the heart Dr told my mom if he would have been standing there beside him that there would have been nothing, he could have done to save his life.

The worst part about my daddy having a heart attack that was so severe, is that the very same heart Dr had told my Daddy two years prior that if he didn't make drastic changes in his lifestyle that he would have a massive heart attack that would most likely kill him, but being one that he was one of those rough and tough kind of man that he was. I don't think that he actually believed that something like a heart a attack would kill him and two years later the heart attack that he had blew the entire back side of his heart out.

It has been painful for me bc the man that I loved as a 9 year old boy was gone from mine and my 5 brothers and sisters' life forever when all he would have had to done to keep on living and be there for us was to stop smoking, drinking, and eating some of the foods that would help a man in his condition to live a full life and see me and my siblings grow up. He has been gone for 62 years, and I still ask myself what he would have thought about the way that I turn out after going through a really tough and very poor childhood that was mostly his fault bc he believed that he was too tough for a massive heart attack like the one that he had that killed him.

The reason that I feel it was sad that your dad passed on when you were only year old is that you never had the chance to know how it feels to have developed real love in your heart for the man that played a part in you having a life. I say this bc even though I've been somewhat angry with my daddy throughout most of my life, I can still feel the love that I had for my daddy while he was alive, and that love out ways the anger I've had for him bc he refused to change his lifestyle that probably would have allowed him to live and see his 6 kids grow up, and honestly through all the hardship that we lived through bc he wasn't there, all six of us turned out to be what I believe were good human beings that would always do what we could to help others over long before we would do anything to cause them harm. Again, I feel for you bc you never got to actually love the man that was your daddy!!!

I have Christmas, Anniversary, Ms. Mole's Birthday, and Valentine's Day in a 50-day span.

Last year, I proposed moving our anniversary celebration to later in the year so we might spread our celebrations. That was a bad idea.

Now that there is a hard nut to swallow. Losing your spouse would be a very tough road to walk down, especially if you truly loved her. I really hope that I go before my wife goes bc that is a road that I wouldn't want to walk down without her by my side...

Ever since my back injury got to where I have been very limited of what I'm able do, she took the reins of our marriage and has drove that wagon as good or maybe better than I done when I was the driver, and she has done it with taking really good care of me all at the same time. I will say this, a man or a woman will learn just how much their spouse loves them when something happens where one or the other can no longer do the special things they use to do for the other one, and they will just add more to their plate and do whatever has to be done without ever hearing any complaints. I was lucky enough to have married a special person just like the one I just talked about!!!!
