    I made the same promise to my dad also! He never seen the inside of a nursing home! He passed away in 2000 at 85. I was going to cut his hair that day, but he passed away before I made it there! I shaved him and cut his hair at the morgue at the funeral home.
    Thanks for all the great pictures! He is proud of you.

    Dad gave me a Remington model 788 243 rifle when i turned 12.
    I gave it to my son when he turned 12.
    I wish i'd taken a pic of it when i was down there today.
    we played this song at Dad's funeral, as background music for the slide
    show.
    I also played this one for him as well.

    I've grieved and i'm okay with it.
    If i could talk to him one more time...i'd tell him again what a great man he was and
    thank him for being what all he was, and still is to me.
    I hunted with him every deer and squirrel season from 1977 to 2017.
    Lot of memories....Great memories.
    I can't even recall it all, but lately things have been bobbing to the top and
    i like it.
    I hope you all enjoyed this and maybe it jogged some good memories of
    your father for you as well.
    Keep them close and tell them you love them.

    What a great father. Even though I didn’t know him, this tribute is proof of that!
    I am sorry you had to lose him, and lose him in that manner. But, because of you, your dad will live on.
    Thanks for sharing some of your memories, and pics. And thanks for the pics of the beautiful rifles. Your dad had good taste in firearms for sure.
    There sure are some good people on this forum, and you are for sure one of the good fellas. Guess you owe that to dad as well.....
    And by the way, brought tears to my eyes. I’m sure others are shedding a few as well. I’ll be praying for you!
