At times, we represent clients who are fathers and we see how much the injuries can change their lives. I was moved by the client that couldn’t fish or go camping out doors with his children, after he had surgery. It was a horrible time for him as he watched his brother stand in for him.

Other times, we represent families who have lost their father. It is heartbreaking to talk to family members about their loss. The conversations often remind me of my own departed Dad.

On this day I think it’s fitting to post one of the poems that I sometimes use as a part of those cases:

Dad, our sadness knows no end;
We can’t believe you’re gone;
We’re grieving for you every day;
It’s hard to carry on.

You were always there to support and care,
When we needed a true friend,
How we’ll ever do without our dad,
We cannot comprehend.

You were our teacher and our guide,
Our dad, so good and strong;
Your example will sustain us now,
And last our whole lives long.

We’re trying to communicate;
We hope that you can hear;
Expressing what we feel for you,
Helps us feel you’re near.

Our memories of the times we had
Help the pain to go away.
But Dad, our lives won’t be the same;
We’ll miss you every day.

A part of us went with you;
You left a gap too big to fill;
You’re our father and our hero;
We love you and we always will.

Happy Fathers Day to all Fathers. May it be a special day with your family.

    I lost my dad when I was 15 and I was really lost after he passed away. I didn't know what to do next, as we had so much in common and had a lot of fun times that I still remember today. I am not yet a father myself, but I have many friends and relatives who are; and I admire all of them for that....Happy Father's Day to you Michael and to all the other dad's around the world.
