It's difficult to start and talk about dads after reading posts from others.
I know I won't be able to tell mine the well as they did, so let me share my story as the words come.
I lost my dad last May of this year. I still remember vividly how the news came. He died at around 4AM. He was in our home in the Philippines, while I and my wife were here in Japan. Due to the situation of COVID, we decided not go come home for his burial.
Same with @mineopoly, I saw faults in my father. But all of those were meaningless when I lost him. My love for him surpassed those faults, but unfortunately I only realized it when I lost him.
He loved the Beatles and as my sister delivered it during his wake, it was the reason that we were more of a Beatles fan than an Elvis. My daughter even created a short clip of him using the Beatle's Yesterday.
So many memories of him are still with me. And I'm forever thankful to God that we were taught to forgive continuously.
