I am so sorry Rob! He was a great man. I did not know him, but the evidence is in the son he raised.

So sorry for your loss, Rob. and what a sweet story you told of him. Hold those memories close as you give yourself both permission and time to mourn. (It isn't over in a week.)

As time goes by, I think you will find him on your shoulder whenever you're facing a challenging situation. He will, as always, be urging you on to success.

Sending you hugs, and will remember him, you and your family in my prayers.

I am deeply sorry for your loss, Rob. Thank you for sharing a little bit about him. In the times to come thoughts of your dad will bring a smile to your face and a warmth to your heart.

Our thoughts are with you.

Your Dad sounds like a pretty amazing man Rob. Losing a father hurts so much, I'm so sorry. I said a prayer this morning for you before posting. I just want you to know that whenever you feel like you want to share more about your Dad we'd love to hear about him.

My condolence, Rob, I believe I would've enjoyed his company on a stream or across a campfire. Take care.

I know the melody for the lyrics you posted. No doubt it will pop into my head now unbidden throughout the day, and next. I will think of you and your family when it does.

i'm sorry to hear about the passing away of your dad. from your loving and eloquent eulogy we get a sense of a devoted and loving family man who enjoyed a harmonious unity with nature as well. i'm sure his passing causes a painful sense of loss in you, and i am very sorry for your suffering. the best dad's never get to live long enough. they do however, leave behind the very best essences of themselves in their beloved sons with which to carry on. your dad will continue to live on in your heart, as you said, and so long as that memory of the heart endures, your dad will never leave you in the only way that has ever really mattered. peace be with you and yours during these difficult times.
