My sons in front, my dads step sons (wife's brothers) with them. Even though my wife's brothers were all adults when my dad married my wife's mom, they all considered him their father. They loved him and he loved them...

She then handed it to me. She wanted me to have it.
We went today and spread all the flowers from the service out on his grave. It makes the bare dirt look better
And hey everyone, thanks so much for the really, really nice words. I think making this thread and sharing my dad has really helped me some.
I feel like I kinda know the guy just from looking at these wonderful memories/highlights in his life. Thanks for sharing them, and I am sorry for your loss. He seemed like a good guy.
Things of note: Your wife is very pretty! I take it from all the hawaiian stuff, she is from Hawaii? Your sons look so different! One looks like you (the taller one) and the younger one doesn't look anything like him, much more like your wife.
