|I had to smile when I read your review on my poem, Mother. I surely do have a southern accent. My mother has Alzheimer's disease and slowly dies. Your poem, Dad, breaks my heart. Tears fill my eyes. I,too, lost my father to cancer 3 years ago. My condolence to you Andy Turner. I am so sorry. Your poem is deeply felt and moving...|

|Many of us can relate to this Andy..
alas my parents left this world while I was not nearby..They lived in Australia while I am living in Croatia..they had sis and bro at their side so that makes it easier on me..however memories do their thing and many-a-time I find myself thinking of the days when life was simple and secure bathed in their love..

OUR PRESENT KNOWLEDGE OF TIME HEALS...UNTIL THE DAY WHEN 'HIS' ETERNAL LOVE...BREAKS...THE SEAL. THANKS FOR SHARING, ANDY AND MUCH LOVE AND FAITH TO YOU AND YOURS. BLESSINGS...

|I can relate to this Andy. I lost my dad in 2005. The first year is the hardest, especially around the holidays or his birthday. But it does get better as you heal. Patrick|

|Reviewed by Janna Hill
|What a tender, loving tribute and by the dates it appears the wound is still fresh. Makes the holidays a tad harsh. Though his years in this realm were ample, it doesn't comfort the loss much.
Wishing you comfort & happiness Andy.
