My step father(David Washburn) passed away February 20th of this year.Im still in shock and finding it hard to deal with.This man took a six year old boy full of anger and hate and showed me the great outdoors teaching me to trap,hunt,and fish.What I would give to hear his voice again.Love you and miss you dad.Thank you.I will always cherish the memories.R.I.P.See you again in Heaven.

I wish you healing and you were very fortunate to have him in your life.

My son has a stepdaughter and I hope someday she feels the same about him. He does so much with her, and she loves to be with him doing things. It just makes my heart feel so good because she needs a father figure.

Thanks for your story.

My way of dealing with loosing a loved one is too remember and be thankful for the time I had with them. Its not easy, but it works for me. Best Wishes on your healing
