My Dads Watch

Post by Mckosiracing »

Hello

I'm new here but thought I'd just make a little post. My Dad passed away suddenly and expectedly at a young age a few months ago and loved his watches.

Tonight my mum has given me a CW of his with his initials on the back. I have a few nice watches but have never felt so emotionally connected to one in my life. This one really means a lot.

I’m sorry for your father’s passing. Sudden ones hurt all the more, I think, as there is no time to prepare. I’m the age, now, that my father was when he died nearly half my lifetime ago.

Enjoy and treasure the memento. A personalized watch is a special possession to have.

Thank you for coming here to share your story. I’m sorry for your so great loss. Watches come and go but occasionally one will stand out in its sheer heart importance. You will always have the watch, the memories and the heart with you.

Welcome to the forum / asylum but my sincere condolences over the loss of your Father.

A lovely memento to have of him though in the watch. You'll no doubt wear it with love and pride.
