    I just got the most shocking phone call of my life....my step father passed away 2 hours ago to a massive heart attack /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    He was the best thing that ever happenned to my mother and was her best friend. They are retired Rv'ers and are currently at their summer landing spot in Arizona. I want to fly down and help her but I have no financial way to get an airline ticket or anyone to take care of my children while I would be gone. I do hope my brother is able to get a ticket down to help. This is such a great shock to us all.

    He will be so greatly missed...he was loved so much and was a great dad to me /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Sorry to hear that, our condolances.
    Death is funny, you are down that they are gone and yet feel privilaged that you knew them.
    If you grew up to make him proud then he didn't die in vain.
    He did his time and passed on his wisdom and now you have to do the same.
    Peace to you and your family.

    I'm sorry for your loss. When my mom died, someone told me this.." a person isn't truly gone, until the last person that knew them, passes on."

    Ouch. I think that'll be the saddest day of my life when my father passes on. I'm really sorry. Whereabouts is Az? Anything we can do to help out?

    Thank you everyone so glad I could express my sadness here.

    My mother has sort of a game plan and between my brother and me we will get her taken care of. The funeral is November 1st in San Bernadino (sp?) Calif and in the mean time she will be preparing the Arizona home for sale (Winkleman about 30ish miles from Tuscon), the rv trailer and dually, and selling off everything down there so she can move back up here to be closer to family. My brother is going down in December to drive with her up, just very glad she is coming back home.

    I feel so bad for her being alone but knowing her redheaded stubborness she will struggle through this, we have been through worse. I know it has brought us even closer together as a family. Sucks sometimes it takes a horrible tragedy like this to bring loved ones back together.

    He was such a great father to me and a major muscle car nut, owned some awesome cars in his time and totally encouraged my love of all things big and bad /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif I will truely miss him.

    Sorry for the loss /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
    I have heard if you call the airlines and tell them you
    had a death in the family and you dont have any money to get to the funeral. they will give you a grevence (SP)
    pass for free all you have to do is show the a death cert
    before you board to come back home.
    As for the kids I dont know how old they are but I think if possible take them with you may help them understand what has happend and if not it just may make your family a little closer.

    Sorry to hear about your dad.

    Don't know what else to say except I'm glad you have so many great memories of him. Make sure you share them with your kids to keep his memories alive.
