Best wishes at this difficult time, Matt. I've typed a lengthy post several times over and then deleted it. I just can't find the words, I'm afraid.

Take care.

I thought this was some going on vacation thread, so I didn't open it until now.

So sorry to hear about this, prez. My condolences and best to your family.

Sincerest condolences from me, mate. If it's any consolation I know exactly what you must be going through.

So sad to hear this Matt. Keep on keeping on and make sure that over time, your kids hear about all the good things he had going. It's important to not let that stuff just evaporate in the ether.

My deepest condolences on your loss, Matt. Your dad sounds like a super guy, and you were very lucky to have him for a father. Keep the good memories with you in your sorrow, and let others know how great he was, so they would be inspired, too.

My God I'm sad now, paralysed,
You're going away,
I'd hoped you were gonna stay,
I'm so sad you're going away.
