    Everytime I come to Snuson, I tear up. It's hard for me to post because I know my dad won't be able to reply. My inbox still has the last PM he sent to me a few days before his heart attack. The last email I sent to him, about 3 hours before his heart attack, was the list of Snus I wanted. He was planning on mailing it to me the next day. I told him to hold off on sending it (because I was planning to come home for Thanksgiving.) But he insisted that he box it up and mail it. I didn't want to let him in on me coming home so I agreed.

    When I finally made it home, the day he died, I went to his house and where the EMT's found him, was the open box that he was in the process of packing. It's kind of hard to think that he had his heart attack while he was getting it ready for me.

    It's been a few months and I still can't get over that he's gone. I still get the urge to call him and ask a question. Since he still had a huge loan out on his house, I had to sign the property over to the bank he had the loan with. The bank was helpful and gave me a couple of months to clean up and take all of contents. I'm still in Massachusetts trying to finalize up things here before I can go back to Minnesota. He wasn't a big spender (aside from snus) so he didn't have much debt. It was all cleared up within a few days of me being here. So now I just have to wait for the government to finalize up all of his death benefits before I can head home.

    It was a hard holiday season for my family. Not that it was horrible, just that my dad was the key to all of our holiday gatherings. He was the life of the party. So we just sat around reminiscing on Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have yet to open any of the Christmas presents my family got me because it just didn't feel right to.

    He had a military funeral with the flag folding ceremony and was burried at his parents plot. My uncle Roger, one of my dad's brothers, was so moved by the ceremony that he asked to have the same for him as he also served in the Army. He said he wanted the trumpeter to play "Taps" just because he knows it will make everyone cry. lol, nice thought.

    Anyway, gotta get back to real life and get back to my web design. Which is funny, because my dad taught me everything I know about web design. So I like to think that he'll live on in my coding
    I completely understand how you feel and we all miss snusgetter.

    I have lost my dad when I was 15, and wasn't easy - it's even harder now without him. A man needs his father no matter what but hang in there life is just tough sometimes.

    Let's pop a snus in, in Snugetter's memory

      Snusoff,

      Thanks for the update on how you are doing. Your dad has certainly been missed. I have often wondered how you were getting a long and hoped that you would pop back in here when you were ready.

      Anyway...........thanks for the post and know you guys remain in our thoughts and prayers.

      Dog
      When it's my time to go, I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my uncle did....... Not screaming in terror like his passengers

        Snusoff, great post and timely. I was just thinking of Snusgetter yesterday and wondering how you are doing, so thank you for touching base with us. Like many here I miss his posts every day. I feel honored to have been one of the lucky to know him. Please keep posting, you are part of the family now

                I really miss Snusgetter. He really lightened up the forums. Almost every day I look back at his old posts in the "Whats in your mouth" thread. A fantastic guy. I still wonder what he looked like, and what kind of person he was in real life (although I have gotten a bit clearer picture from Snusoffs very nice descriptions).


                RIP Snusgetter, hope you are enjoying life on the other side! We miss you!

                  After a lengthy absence from this forum, I am shocked to hear this. I am humbled to say I"ve enjoyed corresponding with him.
