Mike I'm just seeing this. I hope that you gathered some sense of peace and closure being surrounded by family and friends as you celebrated your dad's life. You are so right in saying that knowing it's coming does not make it any easier. You never stop missing your parents (both of mine have gone ahead), but in time it does get easier. I find that as I get older I celebrate things about me which are more and more like my mom. I can smile as I remember some of her sayings or delite as my adult kids talk about their memories with her. I wish things like this for you too. Hugs.

How special! Look at all the names of people who will remember your father and carry on his legacy.
