Apologies for not reading your post Leefer, it'd make me blub so I gave it a miss, been very emotional since becoming a dad myself.

RIP to your dad, hope you give him a good send off.

Wow!

What a beautifully crafted post.

Really sorry for your loss, both now and in yours and your Dad's earlier life.

I hope you remember to bookmark this thread so that you can look back in years to come at the sheer power of your outpouring of emotion. More than that, your emotions and your memories of him will touch many a stranger, both now and in years to come.

Always admired your posts Leefer, sometimes funny, sometimes enlightening, occasionally not agreed with - but always genuine, so really sorry to hear about your loss.

My Dad died 15 years ago and we had a bitter sweet relationship so naturally there were regrets on both sides, lost opportunities for Dad and simply loss for me but I have found that the sense of love or having loved is what endures. 

Good that your Dad saw Saints and Town promoted but all the same a really tough time right now so my thoughts are with you

That was the most emotional, touching and yet in some ways uplifting post I think I've ever seen on the TEF.  I don't know you leefer, but what you wrote really struck a chord and I wish you and your family the very best in this most difficult of times.

Oh the TEF for all its bollocks is a humbling fucking place sometimes.

In addition to Leefer's, there are some beautiful, tender, honest and heartlifting pieces in this thread.

Keep your lights shining Leefer, whoever we are, we're here with you.

Dear Leefer,
I am very very sorry to hear about your loss, and thank you for a great post.

My Dad died 11 years ago and the last 5 years of his life I shut him out of mine, it is only in recent years I regret we could not have been friends but that's families.

I'm sure you have a good network of friends and families, but if you need to chat or want to meet for a pint, I'm sure there are many on here who would happily do so, me included.
