Free Condolence Letters Examples for a Father

Dear Anthony,

I'm so very sorry to hear of your dad's death. I want you to know that my thoughts are with you.

Stephen was such an amazing man who touched the lives of many. Everyone who knew him will miss him. He was like a father to me. I remember the many times I'd be over for dinner. The weekends spent at your house because of all the drama going on at mine when we were teenagers. Stephen would be playing his banjo, teaching us about mechanical engineering, or sharing tidbits of information about his homeland of Scotland.

Remember the day he bought you that little car when you started college? That thing had the worst rust and it had no floor! Every evening after work and all day on the weekends during that summer he'd work on your car to have it ready for when we'd start college. We'd be standing around with our Slurpees in hand, watching, while he'd be cutting, welding, sealing, and sanding. Next thing I knew, one day when I came off the bus, a shiny little white Dodge Omni was parked in your driveway. Brought back to life and waiting to be driven.

We never would have been able to finish college if it weren't for that little beast. I'll never forget that summer. Every time I see a Dodge Omni or hear a banjo playing I'm reminded of Stephen. Now I'll be reminded of how much I miss him.

Stephen will be missed. You could use your special talents in web and graphic design to make a website dedicated to him. I'm off on Tuesdays so I could come over and help you with the site, I have some old photos we could scan.

Sending you lots of love and light during these difficult times old friend.
