    Lost my Dad tonight, surrounded by his family, he was 85, My folks had just celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary in July. He was in the 95th Infantry Division and landed on Normandy Oct 20th 1944. A role model for many as an Eagle Scout while in the Boy Scouts for 50+ years. He is missed already!!! Love ya Dad! -Frank C

    Sorry to hear that Frank. Unfortunately it's something we all have to go through at some point in life. As said above, there will be the great memories over time but it does leave a great void when you have been able to enjoy them so much while they were here. God Bless, Bob

    I think maybe God gives us one mam and dad because if you had to loose more than one, you couldn't stand the pain. Lost my dad 32 yeas ago and still think about him every day.

    I am sorry for your loss and happy that you had a dad who was there and left so much with you!
    God bless.

    It's a bad time, you have my sympathy, just remember and honor his life. I lost my parents over ten years ago but I still honor them and remember.

    Sorry to hear you lost your Dad. Loosing those we love the most is the thing I really dislike about growing old. Dan

    Hi Frank,
    You are in our prayers. 60 yrs of marriage. I probably won't live to see 60, let alone being married that long! Sounds like a great man. I lost my dad 15 yrs ago, and still seems like yesterday sometimes. Could you post a pic of your dad on the site? Those ol' infantry guys are all my heroes.
    God bless, -the Fitzjarralds
