I lost my Dad on Friday ... I may edit this and say more about him at a later date but for now, I will just leave you with that he was a great man who will be missed by many ...

I love you Dad ...

I know that the day is coming when I lose my dad and the fulcrum of my family but my condolences mate. I hope you and the rest of the family are doing ok.

My dad's inside me and his grandchildren. He visits me on rare occasions in dreams. Nothing's changed except that sometime in the next instant or two i'll be where he is now. The separation is the hardest part,... but not permanent.

I was thinking about my dad the other day as I was checking out the pool stick I got him a couple of years before he died. It's all I have to remember him. I have a picture of me holding my infant half sister with a picture of me and him on the wall in the background, but that's it. It's sort of fitting actually, that I'd have so little to remember him by.

But anyway, I realized that the last time we saw each other I had driven down from Baltimore to shoot in a pool tournament with him at this little bar he shot for. He had been off the booze for a while, and these people just sort of took him in. He was like, the 'dry drunk' of the establishment I guess. We were shooting, and I was doing okay, and this dude starts talking shit about me being some kind of 'ringer' or something. I'm okay, but I'm no 'ringer' by any means. But dude keeps going on about it, not to me directly of course, but sort of just loud enough to others so that I'd definitely hear. So I finally decide I've heard enough, and use the same tactic back against the guy. I say to my dad, somewhat louder than necessary, "If anybody thinks I'm sand bagging or otherwise 'laying down' for this match, THAT person needs to speak to me directly and quit being a little bitch about it."

Nothing.

Crickets.

Dude never said anything about it again.

My dad seemed sort of proud that I had said something, but also proud that I didn't Kirk out and beat the dog piss out of the guy, which would have been a distinct possibility in earlier days. I just liked the way he smiled for the rest of the tournament.

So, to wrap up, my last day with my dad was spent sober, doing something we both loved doing, and he got to see that I had grown up with a backbone but had outgrown the need to 'prove it'.

In our relationship, that's as close to a win as I could ever expect.
