I bawled.

EDIT: To clarify, my dad had a thing for nicknames. If he knew you, you got one. And it stuck. Mine is Merney. My baby sister's is Bunkers. He called her Bunkers Vincent all the time because Vincent is my middle name, and during the short 3-4 years I lived in the same house as my baby sister, we were inseparable. So he slapped my middle name along with his nickname for her in his goofy way of 'naming' us.

I would have bawled too.. I am not scared to pass myself, but I don't handle death of people I care for well.

With what you have shared with us, I admire the strength and bond of your family. And your Dad having the strength to put things like that together for his family to reflect on.. simply awesome.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Pretty cool Formo. The relationship you had with your Father was the one thing I envy of you! You're a lucky guy.

Wow. Thanks, Formo! Touches a tender spot--Like Packz, I'm not afraid of dying, but I would bitterly regret not being physically present to share future events with my family.
