You really needed to mention your dad in past tense twice?
My dad was a raving alcoholic who left my mother after I was born but not before he sold all our valuables and escaped somewhere north, only to die some years later. Yet, I don't feel the need to mention him to try and get other people to sympathize with me.
Appreciate it very much? Doubt it. I bet there are much better and more productive things any parent can do than spending time with their now-adult offspring.
Obviously yes... since I was typing that I currently do something that I am unable to do with my Dad since he passed away in 2008. I still take my Mom to movies on a regular basis.
As for my Parents appreciating it? ABSOLUTELY they do! If I get a bit busy with other things, I actually end up having my Mom asking me why I haven't been able to come over to see her!
