this song always brings tears to my eyes, I lost my dad june 9th, 1986, and wasn, t even there when he died, and all I can say is I miss you dad, rest peacefully, I am sure you are happy with mom and your parents now, I will see you again someday

To all "The Old Men" who were always there for us when we were growing up and needed the guidance of one who loved us enough to say "NO" when it was needed and to encourage us to strive further when our youth and inexperience made us want to give up. THANK YOU for being there for us, You are sadly missed and irreplaceable.

my dad has been gone now for over 42 years, i still miss him, i still cry for him, he gave me my morals, my religion, my whole way of life, he was some man, he gave me my Scottish pride, jim little

I listen to this song in memory of my beloved father, John Fitzsimmons, who entered into eternal rest four years ago. He never gave up on me, even in the years when I strayed from all he taught me. I miss our conversations, and his calming presence in these troubled days. I love you, Dad, and God willing I will see you again for all eternity one day.

Oddly my father died suddenly two months before I was born yet I can be deeply moved by songs like this paying tribute to a loving father. Wonderful song and as ever with John McDermott beautifully sung.

One of my favorite songs of all time. Reminds me so much of my Dad. If you watch McDermott he must be thinking of his "old Man' too. As he says..."I never will forget him, for he made me what I am". He tears up in this one. He also carrys a cain which I bet is his Dad's. He kisses a ring which I bet is his Dad's too. You can see the emotion from him I feel when I watch him. I miss you Dad...& mother.
