I enjoyed this tribute to your dad. The worst part of growing old is the feeling that perhaps you have outlived your usefulness and the sadness that comes from acnowledging this. Be sure you tell him how much he's loved and appreciated and make him feel needed. This will mean so much to him. God bless you.

Thanks for sharing these feelings whether from observation or, I suspect, firsthand. To see a loved one in light of reality, both with wonderful qualities and some not so great, is real love, and like God's love for us.

What a great story about faith and love. It touched my heart.

I was impressed with your father's attitude toward death, but even more inspired by his attitude toward life.

May we all be as excited as he, to see the same thing over and over again. To not be constantly searching for the next best thing, but to be in awe over God's creations such as the quail, each and every time we see it.
