This is the first Father's Day since my dad passed away.

I miss you, Daddy!

I asked my dad what he wanted for Father's Day. Actually I gave him a choice: Barnes and Noble or L L Bean. He is getting a L L Bean Gift Card.

You crossed my mind as I was writing the Page. Irreplaceable, a father's love. Different from a mother's.

The reason I'm going back to school to get an award in the culinary arts is because of my father. My love of food and cooking can be traced back to him.

Aren't you sweet :) Thanks for the hat tip! Your story is a wonderful tribute.

My father listened to "Oh Mein Papa". He was born in 1926 and passed in 1993 when I was 31. I was blessed to have him around a long time.

Love your pic, CL. You're a cutie!

I hit a rough patch with my old man when he walked out on my mother around 7 years ago. At first I was angry partially because I didn't understand why and partially because of the venom my mom was spewing about him.

When I told my mom I was going to marry my girlfriend and move to the US she told me flatly I did not have her blessing and she thought I was making a huge mistake.

My dad on the other hand supported me and that's what led to the mending of fences between us. He treated me like a man, an adult. My mother still saw her little boy. One of my fondest wedding memories is having breakfast with my dad the morning of the ceremony.

My mom initially said she would not attend if I invited "him". I said screw that. I am inviting both of you and if you dont go its on you, not me. She flip flopped until the day before the wedding and finally decided to go.

Dad and I have a good relationship again.

Wonderful Page, CL. A touching photo, and a heartfelt message that brought a pang to me as I relived some of my memories of my father.

I'm blessed that I have a son who calls and texts most everyday.
That all most of us dads need.

Thanks CuriousLurker for the walk down memory lane.

Yeah, we moms sometimes have a hard time letting go. My son is in his late 20's and I still have to consciously stop myself from treating him as if he's a 5-year old who needs my constant guidance. No matter how misguided or annoying it gets, try to remember that desire to shield you from possible harm comes from a place of love. I'm glad your mom came around.

Dad and I have a good relationship again.

That's great to hear.

I'm so glad this touched you—thanks for saying so. I occasionally get frustrated by the anonymity of the internet and feel compelled to try to reach through cyberspace and connect with people on a more human level, even if only for a few brief seconds.

You have a good son. I'll bet he has no idea how much his calls & texts mean to you, but he will one day when he has grown children of his own. :)
