8 May 2005 Goodbye dad

8 May 2005 "Goodbye dad"

I lost my father today.
I should have known better
to tell him how much I love him
when I could.
The only thing that I ever managed to give him
a grandchild with his name.
Goodbye dad, we will all miss you.

Antonis ~ I am very sorry for your loss, but I think giving him a grandson is one of the best things you could ever have done. I can see that he looks immensly happy and proud of him here.
Katie Jones15-May-2005 19:12
Sorry to hear your sad news. What a lovely photo to remember him by.
Fran Purdy LRPS15-May-2005 18:56
Antonis, I'm sorry for your loss and sadness (sadly I also know the feeling only too well ). He must have been so proud to have his Grandson named after him - this is a really happy touching photo.

My condolences to you.
He is such a sweet gentleman.
Guest 14-May-2005 07:06
sorry to hear about your loss. this is a lovely portrait of him enjoying the company of his grandchild.
Coleen Perilloux Landry14-May-2005 02:00
You gave him love and you gave him a grandson with his name. Do not regret; look only at the happy things. Love is not always spoken in words. My heartfelt sympathy to you. Remember him well, speak of him often and he will always be alive.

I am so sorry that I missed this. I know how much you will miss your dad. He looks a very special man.
Guest 13-May-2005 23:08
Me and Ioanna feeling very sorry for your great loss, now just surfing in your galleries and I knew it, what else we can say, I feel sorry also that I was not at your side this sad day.

I'm so sorry Antonis. He will live forever in your memory.
oak13-May-2005 03:59
It seems from this photo your father has not been lost, but found.
Guest 12-May-2005 18:36
I'm sorry for you Antonis
Rochelle Cardinale12-May-2005 03:28
I am so sorry to hear about your loss, Antonis. I lost my Mom when I was 17. I think you always wish you could have said something more. But, they do know how much you care about them. You can tell by the smile on your Dad's face how much he knew his family cared about him, how happy he was.
Andrea Aschedamini11-May-2005 22:48
I can feel the love between your son, you and your father...
I'm REALLY sorry my friend.
Karthik Raja11-May-2005 18:33
Antonis, I am so sorry. My deepest regards.
Such a happy photo. These memories are what will keep us all going.
Shwetha's and my prayers are with you and your family.

My condolense
Guest 11-May-2005 05:48
what a beautiful smile, i love the dialogue between the two, his knowing eyes; you gave him the greatest gift of all
Lee Kindness10-May-2005 21:36
A real smiler of a photo!
Dominic Kite10-May-2005 12:29
Oh no. My deepest sympathies Antonis, my thoughts are with you.
Ann LT10-May-2005 04:06
My deepest sympathy, Antonis.
don nieman10-May-2005 01:13
I believe many of us could feel that way Antonis, like we should have given more, but I would say a beautiful grandson is a pretty wonderful thing. The joy and pride radiates from your father's expression. Wonderful image. I am sorry for your loss.
Gail Davison09-May-2005 21:44
Antonis. I'm so sorry. That sounds so inadequate because I can't imagine what you are going through. I'm sure your father knew only too well that you loved him and what a wonderful happy photo to remember him by.
laine8209-May-2005 21:15
So very sorry to hear of your loss, Antonis. I'm sure he knew how you felt about him.
Your son will carry his name forever.
Guest 09-May-2005 12:56
I can only say what others have, I still have both my parents.. but have lost my two brothers. Think of the good times, and look toward the future. We would all like to go back and say many things we didn't, but I'm sure he hears you even now. My warmest reguard, and deepest sympathies for your loss.
antidote309-May-2005 10:01
my condolences to your family and you.
Stu09-May-2005 09:32
It is something that you never truly get over. My deepest sympathies.
Chris Sofopoulos09-May-2005 07:48
A great loss Antonis and so touching and true words.. We are all do feel sorry and we will be next to you every moment you need us! Goodbye George..
whiskey0109-May-2005 06:11
I was going to comment that your photo was wonderful, how while there is an obvious generation gap, that the child and elderly man both are in tune, and are having a wonderful time. But after reading your caption, this photo is all the more special and important. I am very sorry for your lost. Like Vinh said, actions are more powerful than words.
Guest 09-May-2005 05:42
Antonis, I am so very sorry for your loss! I am glad you have this photograph to treasure. Look at the love in your dad's eyes for his grandson. Beautiful.
Vinh Luu09-May-2005 05:35
Antonis.. I'm sorry to hear of your loss. My condolences to you and your family. I don't think your father ever needed you to tell him how much you loved him. Actions speak louder than words, and if he had a grandson in his name, he must've known you loved him well. With someone else to bear his name and live on, he will never be forgotten.
Susanne09-May-2005 05:18
I am sorry as well for your great loss. I do wish to say to you that we always feel that we did not tell our parents often enough how much we loved them. However, I think it is not the words that mean the most and I know that your dad knows that you loved him by your gestures and every day support. Look at him, how happy he looks in this picture, what a wonderful memory.
Dan Chusid09-May-2005 04:59
A chapter in your life ends but tomorrow the book writing continues...
JeremyGood09-May-2005 04:54
Antonis, deepest sympathies and condolences from my family to yours. Your father knew and knows now how much you love him, I am sure he was very proud of you.
Guest 09-May-2005 04:46
Anotnis I`m so sorry to hear that. I really sorry my friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family for being strong and with the hope of the endless life, and with your father wishing him to be in the Lord presence.
Watching this photo I can guess that your Dad was a lovely man, who must loved you all so much and I`m sure he always felt the love from you and your family.

I`m sending to you a big hug.
jacek walicki09-May-2005 03:57
Antonis - I am sorry. I know the feeling. Peace.
Monte Stevens09-May-2005 03:52
By the look in his eyes and from the "smile" he knows he is loved while offering his love. Our memories are like photos imprinted in our minds, I imagine you have many. Our prayers are with you and your family as you greive this loss.
Gary Winters09-May-2005 03:24
Oh, Antonis! Wish I could give you a hug. Your dad knew you loved him; and he knows it now. This is a special tribute to him. My heart is full for you, my friend.
Di09-May-2005 03:01
Oh, Antonis. I'm so sorry. What a beautiful image to post in his memory. My thoughts and prayers are with you, my friend.
sam miller09-May-2005 01:38
Very sorry to hear. Great capture, looks like he enjoyed life!
Guest 09-May-2005 01:35
I'm sorry Antonis, that's a very sad news. This picture is a beautiful tribute to him and to life.

Antonis I'm so sorry for your gave him the most precious gift..
Karen Leaf09-May-2005 00:36
