Lost my dad in March of 2012, 3 months before I bought my Boxster. No causality b/c he wasn't a car guy, but he would have enjoyed riding in it.

Still think of him every day.

Good verse.

Lost my dad at the end of March this year. And I'm the same, keep thinking about him every day. We both loved our Porsches.

Sorry to hear about your losses.

The day we are born we are racing to the grave, so what we do is more important than how long we live. That's what fond memories are about.

I was at a Jerry Seinfeld Comedy show last weekend and this stuck in my head.

Seinfeld: Babies are interesting. The are basically here to replace us. Its ironic that the first words they learn are Mama, Dada, Bye-Bye...!

My father passed away 31 years ago today. I still think of him and miss him. It never really goes away.

My Dad passed away 27 years ago. He was my best friend and I will always remember how he always had time for me, whether it was with my sports or patiently teaching me how to drive stick shift. He was a lot of fun and was always the life of the party. I regret that my 17 year old son never got to meet him. They would have been great together. I miss him more each day. Time may help dull the pain but the pain never goes away. Please accept my condolences for your losses.
