    My dad's passed away several years ago now, he only went to the 8th grade but after several years of labor started his own coal stripping business and was very successful.
    Taught me to work hard and be honest and always help others.
    He passed on his wisdom and taught me how to be compassionate and take care of my friends and loved ones. He's been gone for 5 years now, but is always with me.
    he taught to me to have a good work ethic, and always treat people well, I miss him... but he is never forgotten!!! Happy Fathers Day to all fathers out there!
    my dad hasnt talked to me for about 6 years now. its been hard. but he always told me to stay strong. ive always kept his word. even though i dont see him. i still love him. Happy Fathers day to all thoes great dads out there

    Thank u
    My dad had a firm belief "Spare the rod, spoil the child) he passed when, I was 16 but, if he'd spared that rod, I might not have turned OK.
    My dad is dyslexic but throughout his life has fought harder than most to succeed and never allowed his issues to stand in his way.I am very proud of my dad and if I could be even just a little like the man he is(although I am a woman;) ), I would be quite happy.
    To have good manners. He used to say "in this World you can have no money, no education, no job but if you have good manners you will go a long way in life".
    My Dad taught me many fine lessons but the one I liked the best was the one I call the importance of being wrong. It seemed like he wanted the result of his own actions even if the result was failure. He claimed to be aiming for success but defined the terms to favor his loss. I never knew another man who would invest in anticipation of failure and be happy with the result. He was often presented with opportunities to grandly profit, but preferred to wait for a real looser to come along. When it comes to money, Pop repelled money magically into the hands of shysters and conmen as though he had been waiting all his life for them to come along and asked everyone he knew to join with him. It truly was an amazing spectacle.
    My father taught me to respect people, work hard and save money.
    Only buy what you need, nont what you want.I have lived by his example.
    He brought discipline into my life when I really needed it and taught me to respect others, especially my elders. This is my step dad who I consider my Dad.

    my dad taught me the importance of honesty and integrety
    RIP DADDY! MY DAY HAS BEEN SO BITTER SWEET. TO SIT THERE AND LOOK AT HIS ASHES WAS A HEART BREAKER. BUT HE'S WITH ME AND I CAN'T ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE. LONG STORY SHORT, HIS LAST REQUEST WAS FOR ME TO VISIT HIM.....I WAS DEVASTATED....HE DIED OF AIDS....TO WITNESS HIS FLESH LAYING ON THE SIDE OF THE BED NEARLY KILLED ME. HOURS AFTER I LEFT, I WENT HOME AND BEGAN TO CLEAN MY HOUSE.....AN UNUSUAL COLD BREEZE WENT THROUGH MY HOUSE. THE NEXT THING I KNOW, MY MOM AND SISTER WERE KNOCKING AT MY DOOR....BEFORE THEY COULD SAY ANYTHING I SAID, " DADDY DIED HUH " THEIR RESPONSE WAS YES.....I RESPONDED, I KNOW BECAUSE HE JUST PASSED THROUGH MY HOUSE. NEARLY KILLED ME
    love16

    Best wishes:) Hang in there:)
    Coach

    I know your bitter sweet feeling SS. I lost my dad 5 years ago so I always think of him but today especially. I was lucky enough to see him the day before he passed and we got to tell each other,"I love you". I hope things go better for you dear. Keep in touch!

    HUGS...IT WILL...I JUST GOTTA LIVE THE TEACHINGS HE INSTILLED IN ME. I PRIDE HIS WISDOM AND IT TRULY MANIFESTS ON A DAILY BASIS.
    My father died in 1964 aged 78, he taught by example to be proud to be Australian, to love the bush (countryside) and to be proud to have been a soldier in the Australian army.

    He served in France in WW1 and joined again in WW2.

    RIP old mate. XO
    Being honest, doing nice things for others without being asked, being polite.
    Dunno about a better person...more like a damaged individual with lots of issues. Sorry for the negativity on your post.
    my dad taught me the importance of honesty and integrety
    THANKS BABE....I'M TRYING!
