    my heart and prayers go out to you and your family. My wife lost her mom last year at the first Christmas was rough. I know for you this season is going to be the same but I do believe our loved ones are with us every day. I bet you the first morning you will be sitting in that stand and talk to him like he was there with you and you will hear him answer you. This will bring relief to you and will allow you to get Speke final things out you way want to say to him and a special place you both share that you too can fully grieve.  Remember he loves you always!

    Continue to talk to him every day cause he can always hear you.

    My condolences on your loss. This kind of hit home for me as my Dad ain’t too far off that age.

    My heart goes out to you, bro. Sounds like we could have written the same story. I lost my dad to cancer 10 years ago at age 36. Like you, fishing and outdoors was the place we connected most on a personal level. There’s no softening the blow. It’s going to be really tough when you make that shot or catch that fish and your first reaction is “I’d better call Dad!” only to realize in that split second that he’s not gonna be on the other end.  {#emotions_dlg.mathews_crying}

    I’m praying for you and your family. Obviously you’ll make it, just like all those who walked the road before us. No taking away the sense of loss, and not sure that I’d want to anyway. I pray for the peace of Christ to reign upon you as you continue to grieve. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_praying}

    Hey bud im a new reader just wanted you to know your not alone your story touched home i to lost my dad to cancer 4yrs ago its the hardest thing to go through.He was told he had cancer on june 1st and had passed on oct 14th he had just turned 60  on june 1st.I was ciose to my dad as well we were dairy farmers we was together every day and we hunted together all the time.I to can relate to you when you said that your dad very little said i love you my dad rarely said it neither but like you said that smile said it all.I havent that much in the last 4yrs i feel lost with out him.After he had passed i helped my uncle on the farm hoping to one day to take it over but that changed when his daughter stepped in long story short i lost my home my job and my life as a farmer all in one day.Then on top of that about a week before my wife and i were going to close on our new house she was attacked by a buck that i had been raising so that set us back for a while.I’m sorry i keep rambaling about me.I just wanted yo let you know you and your family is in our prayers.Its nice to see that some people still care.I had just started reeding these forums and there is a lot of nice people on mathews.Thanks for lisening and take care.

    So sorry to hear of this news.  He will be looking down on you from heaven……  so when you are hunting this year just think of the wonderful times you two had together.  From what I read it appears he has done his job….. he raised a wonderful and loving son. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_crying}
