I was blessed but not with daughters, thank the lord I guess. I would either be in the poor house spoiling them or in jail protecting them.

Arky you were a good Dad or you would not worry. Look on the bright side you may have gotten a new hunting buddy/SIL + some day Grand kids, now I know what that bumper sticker means that read If I had known that grandkids was this much fun we would have had them first!!!

I only have one daughter...and the day I walked her down the isle and gave her away was one of toughest things I ever did too. However....I now have two wonderful Grandchildren because of her and my son-in-law. He's a real nice guy and I am training him to deer hunt. He has the book knowledge from the Hunter's Safety Classes...but now it's time to give him the practical hand's on.

I feel for you...but it does get easier as time goes on.

Hang in there....and if you're now an empty nester like I am....that's not bad either.

Never had a daughter, all we had was 4 boys. Got to be best man for one of them, cried all the way thru it...............................

You said grown men don't cry, remember the shortest verse in the Bible, John 11:35........JESUS WEPT...........greatest man to ever walk the earth.....

You did it just right. Grown men don't cry, until it's time to cry. It's not natural to give a part of you that you love away without crying.
And she needed to see that she's still loved by you. You did it perfectly, my friend.

Any man who has never cried has lived a very dull life. You did'nt give her away. You just loaned her out so she could give you some grandkids. See, every cloud has a silver lining!
