I'm sitting here thinking about my dad. He's been gone some years now. I hope he smiles when he looks down on me here. Heo, I'm sure your dad does the same when he looks down on you.

Yes I'm also very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing.  It was a blessing for you to have him all these years and to work on his Packard together.  He must have had a full life. 

I was 22 when my Dad passed suddenly but I still think about him every day.  I especially think of him when I get in my '63 Galaxie.  He was a Ford employee and got new company cars every year so he drove 2 different ones when they were new.

It seems best to think of the good and best times as much as possible to turn away from a loss  I am sure the ones we have lost would want that      a good memory and keep moving ahead    john - oldiron

A bit late but I would like to extend my wishes for a Merry Christmas and may the new year restore hope that so many have lost during the plan-demic.

Heo: I am sorry for the loss of your father. It seems you both enjoyed many of the same passions. 
When my times comes I can only pray it is peaceful with loving family.
God speed to you and your family. May you always reflect in the positive. In my opinion the separation is only temporary...

Heo

I had him as a dad for57+years, you see people saying ohh i would like
to do this or that like a father and son project. Most of my life was a father
and son project. One of my earliest memmorys is when i "Helped" my dad
to dissasembel a Model-T engine he found in an anthill. I never forget that
smell of antpiss mixed with old motoroil ;D ;D
Yes you have to focus on the possitiv and he had a full life. Or as my son said
after walking through the village past my dads place. Grandpa built and acompliced
more in his 81 years than anyone have managed in 162 years in this village

Heo sorry for your loss. I can relate with all the good times building race cars and racing on the weekends. I think no matter how old you are when a parent especially a dad dies it’s like loosing a crutch. You can always count on your dad.

Heo, my deepest sympathies on the loss of your father. The loss of a close family member is something we never get over, we simply learn to live with the loss. Obviously, you have many treasured memories of your time with him. Godspeed.
