    I've been writing a new song called Oh Dad. I just finished ut up by Lake Erie this morning. Its works great on Uke and even as a bluegrass song. Somehow it makes me feel better when I sing it and think of all the good times me and dad had together.
    I'll try to get a video up sometime. Its for all who have lost their folks.

    If it's as good or better than Steve Goodman's "My Old Man" you've got a winner. Do not listen to "My Old Man" while drinking.

    Doug, we're with ya on this one big time.

    Here's a link to Steve Goodman's "My Old Man."

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    I lost both my parents when I was 2. 51 years later I still miss them. I hope everyday becomes a little easier for you.

    I lost my mother less than a year ago and I have gone through several states of mild insanity but it is getting better
    .
    it is natural for us to lose out parents as they age but that does not ever make it easy and for me it felt like i was the only one to ever had to go through this
    .
    it is very sad take it one day at a time

    I'm a bluegrass player that carries and upright bass and Ukulele at the festivals so I played Oh Dad at the jam last night. It was a hit and not a dry eye in the camp.
    It was recorded so once I get a copy I'll post it.

    Again thanks all for you're kind word and prayers. Doug

    I immediately felt empathy for you upon reading this. I'm so sorry. I lost my 85 year old dad last year April and I still feel a lot of sadness at times. He and my mother were married 65 years and I know this year has been an adjustment for her as well. I'm happy to hear you remain musically inspired. Sometimes that is the best medicine. Take care of yourself and your family and please stay connected here at UU.
