And about 6 o'clock and anybody who's lost. As head out death thorough has lost a parent her. They're dead there's there's a period of time there where you don't take the full brunt of the news and so about 6 o'clock in the morning when I would've called Jason has said hey you need to work permit today. It was digger myself you know I'm I'm I'm doing pretty well. So I decided to do my own show and I had shared with my nine to noon audience there are that my dad and had a brain and tourism ten days before and and it kind of kept him posted on what the situation was I gone back Colorado for a few days and I come back here because. It could have been in a coma furcal would annul. So lomb. On the morning of voted march the sixteenth I got a phone call from mom and when your phone rings at 3 o'clock in the morning in your. You're dead in a coma you've got to know what that phone calls all of them. And so I came in that morning and no I really didn't talk to anybody and I got on the air incentives you all know have been kind of preoccupied with my dad one that you can't only go you worse. And luckily all did because I don't know what what I would have done for the whole two and half for three hours if you hadn't.

That the good dance that's that's what we're doing on the anniversary of my fathers just 24 years ago and first in this morning or this afternoon is a Stephen WB TA's chief. Hey John enjoy your show every day always a great way to Cuba certainly and doing it yeah thank you very much. But I don't talk a bit about my dad's fluent. When I was grownup you know it it didn't matter. You have only wrench go further you know football basketball baseball whatever. You know he was always just in the crowd you know and and no wind here. Yeah at 121617. Years old Angel thank you think about it you know you LL you know go and Sarah K our group and you don't well. You know when I wanted to last started having kids shouldn't we know about that how could one day and he says. You know you're gonna start or about saying you must sit yeah. Yeah they kind of sparked the common side slopes. Oh you only player who want to come and pay very simply says. Because that's what I'm supposed to do. And you know we talked about it. And you know I proceeded to thank him and he said you don't have to thank me just pray it forward. I was I was never the greatest jock. But I remember going out for football one year and they finally put me on the field and and and dad was up in the stands. And I ran across the outfield and made a tackle which was not necessarily my halo. And out of all the noise in the stands and out all the stuff that was going on the fields funny how you can isolate a voice that you're familiar with but I heard my dad say way to go to Dave wait ago. Now and its failure of Salinas told your story I hire merely thought about that one of those moments in time that he wouldn't have any idea that are remembered but that you remember and they didn't and and you do that too funny how sports and kids and fathers kind of revolve around each other most of the genre. And then I'll take steps forward because I've got three kids and they've all played baseball basketball football and in fact my daughters and college now playing college basketball. Yeah you know if she it is within. You know four hours away we're going to be there yeah professes to bottom line and you know. And I'm I'm sure they've all they've been able appreciate fact without their true. Yeah now they well they probably RD did they just haven't brought it up sometimes you appreciate stuff like that you don't know how to mention it. But let's turn now let's turn around for AS Steve thank you forget we started today appreciate it very much. Like you don't solve the state 7045711. Did Giacomo is up on WB TM and very sorry today I'm great thank you very much are you. Oh wonderful wonderful. Say what they don't like seeing your quick apology he might look Carolina they can't put my people aren't enough to make a lot of people crawling around here tonight. We're about out there. Some of us are already crying I had. Very lost the Oklahoma game in my bracket so first using it to shoot yeah and and good Rhode Island lost to Oklahoma today I had Rhode Island. Gonna be water under acute and sure yeah probably not Oklahoma and Oklahoma lost to Rhode Island so telly that's dad. Well I can tell ya wanna that is uncomfortable with particular black community where I didn't know what they're. And says because. You look at their high school graduation or college when a bottle and Marine Corps wanna go down a storm. But. My dad dealt a complete key democratic seemed to meet him finally. And an extraordinary story because all that you like beer market won't do for a living that you can. Look you want an easy at all sort of built in reality TV show called the week with my ball around you might get eventually leading. And asking about the loss and you know Libya that way at least important to get to reconnect at. And so like because when we had a luckily eight years yet before he died in 2016 and I've got unlucky with not the monster. Everybody made about a day. And Osama bin Laden didn't see my and it. Yeah semi pro boxer if you go on Croat Yugoslav protein called the local weekly I've gotten more and cool debts or at least. Some. What does he say about your. Time estranged from each other. Well we don't you wanna know there are still exist. When Molly more than how we got divorced back in Chile far. Did that lead now in the future be looking out you know which are to 81. So we thought we'd drop multiply that pretty much in Sutton didn't. Tell me they completely lost touch she didn't even know or you're even if he had wanted to get hold of you need to know where you work. Not a bit immediate apology and he'll look there was not much has changed for you and your support not knowing it just. Didn't you got to lead America longer. None of my business but what and how much of your. Impression of him before you met him was based on what your mother had told you about him. You know it all negative. Mirror a lot of things about family story. That will never reached my ears at least loans and wonder and all over the law. Some. But in the movie ticket record we're most lenient for everything that went wrong in my life. Even when people look at my life right now we know when he answered with Cuba could have done their commitment professional ballplayer that masks. Who openly at this stage that. I've got to forgive him because. That market mechanic from you played her that was with a little a little bit. I wanted to blame might get what you didn't do for me. But when you're not holed up found that it is stronger. Didn't you can be important life lesson that she needed. To become a man and now. You know you're talking to a guy who has a son mountain Colorado that hasn't played hardly any role in his life at all me well. And and I can't. It's totally justify or explain all of that he and I have a relationship and we love each other and we talk and and I'm is close to him as I can be but. But I'd say about that today or in my real son my biological son should never called this show on Father's Day. Because because I don't know that I necessarily do do justice to him so he kind of turned out to BA held a dead doe of his own. All by himself I'm pretty proud of him for better so bad Giacomo thank you Carl matter appreciation. Here. Mother's Day. Done this for 24 years people call in and talk about their deaths were off to I've talked to lead to need on WBJ did need our MI pronouncing that right.

Kicker COLT Stanley week stated Churchill he'd make sure that we knew and we knew how to pray and you had to stay in church in a different school. Think it taught me everything bad and he was built olds who then how old school rule. That we teach and I learned a lot. From him I went to rip the universe people now with the school. In every year he would hear in his we're being that you were out of work and and even load here. And take me to. School drop me out in game when it was time to go to become Beck will be in in Dayton home. And he taught me things I had a right. He took me to my first does that McDonnell in Greenfield nature and the manager and I urged it is a bit staying in. I'm probably some very big that they do not probably the round but not really my outlook actually given ensure that the term he wasn't around as much. That my grandfather really step in into big big cheer me and he died in 1993 after I graduated cum from Winthrop in ninety to have moved back home. And I wrote him I found a moment letter thanking him would be an eight day added that the incomplete to me. And what you were a lot we did get the hang out you know doing a lot and he did. I'm in steal from their diet they need but I did. Read the letter parliament and camp will be into keeping it to me. And about six months later he was honestly how old are in Hanna met the target today in saying he pulled over to the fact that the news.

Thank you have a UT off she goes your comes Kimberly on WBT 704571110. Talking about dads today Kimberly. John I need to integrate U com. I haven't appreciated the opportunity. My dad unfortunate Hathaway around the sophomore in college and back eight. After a lot of other people and get out my product but at the same time I really hate the new addition. It's solid hard I think leaving her father Leahy used. Think most armor or not. Luckily I am I would preclude my father like my parents were divorced and that we always talk now has a week in 2000. My favorite thing in the ULE donated. Clean and deep conversation like anybody if they get them off my personnel hype them up people that I work with now let's take a lot of sense. Somebody relatively distant deep into the vacuum behind the name might negated but just keep in the back him armed and healing. Incursion me and made me feel like I can do it probably want to put the working and they would not and I can take. He never tarmac it would be easy they always like if you want it. You go get it he can have you believes and I believed it and one of the biggest burden that I ever Taliban in my data are proud of me. But you know he died. Tough might be the beginning of software your college you know he was supposed to see me graduate he's paid don't at some point what I did may have walked me down in Seattle and he did. And I won't ever happen but. And I don't back home to Berrian liking they have to get back home and do all preparations and 'cause Al gripping the small town east of Raleigh and I had stopped at the general store to carry and you know every small town delicate spot what has little or they're writing about that.

And he told me how my bad this if I didn't and I'd say you like Tim ball becomes something I'm so proud heard she's got to go to school it. To become somebody is watching it. And to back at you that right there is something that nobody will ever be able to take away from me that not only just like my dad was proud to be told me he told other people. They got back any of the unknown that is true and I think yes that. That's also the beauty of a small town Kim as somebody who came from out of a small town there are disadvantages. To everybody knowing everybody in town and everybody known everybody's business of but there is there are real advantages. Two everybody know what everybody's business and no one everybody in town that's a small town story I love that part Allah. Yes and you know as our enforcement adamant about the lake and then that.

We got here in the very back who blew the call and underneath and figured nobody there were armed. Hello my mother here and so I never heard in front. Our sneaking in. Yeah after about a year Baird and should they cannot do both and Alia. Well mobbed. Was very religious. He wrote the Bible scriptures right across every one of those pictures. I guess maybe he didn't want to confront me with something. Over the birds and the bees at that time. And it was somewhat hard for him to lose. And I would think that the good lord gave him an answer to a prayer how to solve the problem never got the confronted. That's separate that that it you know that's a brilliant testing. Philosophy on all of that that's a really interesting philosophy on all of that. We're worked for an it was I mean technically it was wrong. In his eyes what you're doing is wrong but he also understood there was human nature part of that too. You have now are our overburdened and no I think it is brilliant I wonder if anybody you'll steal the idea now that we broadcasted over the 50000 watts it's up. Sure hope so yeah although I've been the most are people get that off the uttered at now as opposed to a magazine stuck behind us some glows in the closet so angered her arena here. What a story. Jerry I appreciate all men thank you very much right here that's that's pretty genius. Plus dead. Did you did you go through the pattern hold I must have been thirteen. Fourteen. I couldn't have been older. When dad finally decided one night that we were gonna have the talk. And I got it was just most uncomfortable. Five minutes of our entire lives. And I think he handled it pretty well but it just became. Not that I have all the answers. But I yeah I think about two minutes into any kind of figured out that. Maybe I could come along a little farther than put it but he real it's. But it's the thought that counts Dave's up on WBT hey Dave. Jar I don't I'm great thank you very much for calling. State banks like my call I've got a ya know what I think the political story about my dead. And I had to reflect back on it you know see. He inadvertently content saying strict. You know but he probably didn't think he was going to time. When I was about ten or eleven my parents got divorced. And honestly it was pretty hard to me at that time. Are. Booked you put them I like old time. And down after that then it won't until I realized. Lot of wild later bad. You know he taught me. Pretty much how all. Our marriage should work. The bomb and I kinda choked that bottle yeah and got married when I was 28. And doubt too are not Jews that they need to have the husband that my tape bought it. At the end of the day now marry 29 years and it's it's a pretty cool thing. Did you did you write because I you know I that I know that I got to draw a lesson from my dad out of it but I kind of told my citing a very technically tossed 42 but I remember telling myself conscientiously I'm only gonna do this wants. Absolutely absolutely and that's what I Don and Connor are because. I am pop I got force that would be and so. You know the reality of it is my dad Joseph Matt around he wrecked compared they've done it well you know even fired hit and so. With that in mind when I got married I was 28 I actually hurt and food at Ford are. And happy to open long when I was 28 years old. And it's it's been a beautiful thing could be the other point I was gonna make which really aren't sure and Bob. Blood job. He cannot 1986. Under who pure show. And my father still lives in Fayetteville Arkansas he was all cracked 27 year. Actually in doubt we were we will close we were on the phone we give. You know I'll be. I don't know why can't believe maybe ever three or or on. Call. Dan. It was all good in any you know each time we call called we comic caught up. But John. I took the situation in 1998. Not 1988. Two to call him on par. And I'll never forget it. So in the war. Talking and just catching up talking not felt so good about it. And talk about 45 minute you know wouldn't. She enjoyed it enjoyed the conversation I enjoyed the conversation you almost like. Policy across the table from the EU just great don't own and have a great feeling you know that would have been and see. What against Jewish. Something like that. Well. You'll be old. She died com July 2 that year. And on the other heart attack massive heart attack early. Against duke the widow maker I call it died about 42 on the couch in the living room. And I'll never forget you ever forget. Just the joy I have in my heart. The 45 minutes or hour and Artest shot the wrong or an apartment Charlotte. Actually had not yet you know just chill and talk to Hillary just like old times. And I think back had I not take medication that call. You know we would've been the last stop I talked to many anti anti that kind of opera. And you said earlier Nero and your tones about this that yeah he obviously enjoyed just the conversation Jim you've got that sense. Oh absolutely well I will tell you that you armed. If you look. And he looked very. Very cool. Dad and by that you you take cool quiet however you want to describe it but I looked tired and I was a product of seventies and early eighties. Guys so. Been around and he would certainly been around him we even got the opportunity at one point. Back when this that are common and the goal of each other. Anyone. Do you look at that particular award cold and at what our court. That's a word we use a lot of back then. Com. Well there was a it was a very cold front turnaround just kind of almost like that's gonna need that afternoon the actual and yes so anyhow. We your light your last phone call is a lot like what we urge people to do and that's write that letter or area or if you can say that that's fine but even good relationship sometimes you can't say what you wanna say and so the letter is. But did but the whole that the whole emphasis of that is so that when you think back. You don't have any kind of a guilt feeling or guilt trip you said what needed to be said in your last conversation with your dad leave you with lots of peace in your life. Without a doubt and I argue unless you look chapel program here but obviously I live here upper twenties or they're so I know you unless you. All the time and he. To my point. I urge you say that multiple times about your relationship we cured that. And I think I just listened YouTube could you there are a lot alike in and probably a lot of ways and dumb. We just as we both know you tool. Well yeah and how else got back could very well but he does yeah I heard you say about you know tragedy yell at. A lucky time to do that but you know touch base back weeks you know as you grow up be any any you don't have any regrets based on back. Now and then if I ever dead I think a 124 years to do and they show he would be stunned and that he was the motivation for me you know do our Father's Day deal. Offer as much time as we've done because I don't think he ever would have expected to. I don't really do this as an honor to him necessarily but I think in some ways it probably. BA amateur psychologist here to say it. Think you know in some small way is it's probably you know my inner me a little bit screaming out to my dad and and say unnerve a lot on her you wanna. I want you to know how much you really did mean to me even though I was a jackass most of the time. You get him on brother but it's a long line now. OK one last very real quick a lot of when he took everybody time. One thing that he did just Betty did she teach beyond the legitimately on the front side was. Well an art school I was very course duty and basically hated school and all I wanted to do it and apply what sort give it to my mother she's the only one really want. But that didn't set up on October it's gotta gotta be that way and not. You know being urged the school. Once you get out school. You better learn a trade. And down because once you get out score that's when the real world starts and I did take into -- imagine. Turn eighteen learn how to cut eight. And now. I've been in the gutter and eat any any management reach our management now for forty years. But I did take that art that you know certainly don't that are gonna be a bomb. The you know so let's go on the ballot show called mood and keep our truck. All right thanks Dave Persian gulf. My dad dad was a million things. The good swimmer I understand back in today. As long before for my time. He was a great artist I have. Sketch oil painting that he did 19 my mom used to give mandated because it to 5 o'clock queued for a Scotch and water and a lot of times we always in the basement of our house.

I didn't well thanks for allowing me the opportunity be patient it's an incredible honor just to listen you say we're on hold. If you're listening on your phone that's not all the all the an honor it was only stories. Com. Both side it's gonna. I'd say it may take an imminent but hey it's a the last story would certainly had zero underlying Cormier at. You look and so many places street euros today in and you certainly had a eurocard that in. It's certainly not a long time I think to realize that. That I do is well. And it's now. Not my first memory in my dad's going out Larry first it worked two jobs to feed a family of eight dark. And I extremely friendly dedicated man and at first memory however it was a an argument that he had with my mom and and he. She end up crying in and they nearly got. Pretty heated argument and last words I remember where I'm out of here I'm leaving. And I remember going upstairs kind of my Brothers that absolutely can. And he came up then. And I picked me up and brought me down. Clothing on a chair in and said don't you learn not going anywhere. And American soul. Tom I sure that I those words. And yet over the years. They had an extremely tumultuous marriages there are many arguments many heated arguments many times when you cook walked out the door. And neither one did. And it was that if it then Stanley values brother he instilled enough that. You know you got one trampling you need to watch out he Brothers and sisters then and all the were very very close over the years because of that. Com. Am I wanna move away to college. He couldn't even talk to me because it is so sad and the fact that I was move now but it was. Time committee go explore the world nah. I couldn't figure out why you felt that was such a happy time meat but. It's all come more could more clear over the years. But. I would probably in my eight late twenties when we. We were at an event and we were asked to declare who they hero was my life and and my father without the event with me. And I remember thinking I really should. Say my bad my hero to these here. But the fact is I'm feeling like my older Brothers my era because he pulled a fight together such great fashion app that so much turmoil like that I love going to let. I ended up sharing how my brother was my hero and I remember feeling that. I love my dad down by not declaring he was my hero but. But it just can't live from me at that time. I remember learning experiences with that Kemper and and that subsequently I'm not going to be M I'm gonna be patient man and I worked very hard is that. But from. The years went by in and my mom got sick down in Florida about seven years ago and we moved him into outs left. And armed. Couple years later she went into a nursing home. And he gets. To get past the south past February and Greg send. Him. It'll be a little hard but. Man stepped on my here today because after. He would go into that nursing home five days a week and hold her hand and be let her. Bombed he would say probably I'm going to visit my bride and seven years. And I got to celebrate the seventieth anniversary together and Nam. And the last stage she would let us. He held her hand. That test so do you that commitment he had. In who brought. You talked about. How said he was when you Wear it when you were on your way out to start your life. Armed. Would when I took this gig here. I had gone back to Colorado and had moved back in my mom and dad because I had been fired in Jacksonville and I had stayed there for about three and a half weeks or something like that in got the call on Monday that I passed my drug test and I could come towards the Charlotte north Carolina's take this job WB chief. And as I walked down the hall. And I already loaded the car and and the cat the cat carrier she was out there are no sauce get ready to leave and as I walked down the hall my dad was ten and earned his lip was quivering. And and and I don't think it was necessarily sad because I was late in the house. I always. And he and I talked about this years later but I was going off on a new adventure. Arm and he had moved around a lot in his life and had taken this job and and taken that job and had to had worked his way up the ladder and assault on several occasions and so on and so forth and I think. I think his lip was quivering because in some ways he was kind of a little envious that I was off on a new adventure I had butterflies in my stomach he wasn't gonna have butterflies in his stomach anymore. And his adventures were over. And there were gonna be any next steps are there Morgan immunity new job interviews or possibilities or anything along those lines of the non. And there was all love believe me but but I always watched his I've always thought about that enough thought to myself he was even slightly envious because he wanted butterflies in the stomach he wanted to challenge in front of him he wanted to some he might either. Pass or fail because that's that's a term that's essentially what it's all about so when you said that about. Said did you relieving. Who knows what his role emotions were he may have been envious on the fact that you were all fun and adventure that did he wasn't gonna have many more ventures. Absolutely and run things could certainly on an emotional debate club Vietnam. He's he's he's got a great sense of humor he needs and it's all like we all do that but there's no cult thing has gone. That commitment that and his sense of humor and his will to keep living yeah. You know there is extremely hard watching him anguish over the past and others said. Quite a mother's seven years but it's seemed to line you know you talk about the serve and read it appeared that the search the provided. The Lankan acute psychotic going today it is that the more I'm not going anywhere are like because I'm going to be the last surviving World War II vet. Very very. He got a great art.
