      The same grief I kind of feel every day knowing that I will never have children, nobody to call me dad, or grandpa, or great grandpa. Of course it is my own fault, but, I look at it as something that I can't change.

      I'm not sure exactly what your situation is. But, if you have fond memories of him to share with your children, share that with them. Maybe a story he liked to tell, or something about him that you liked. Or, maybe you have something that belonged to him. Like my grandmother gave me an old political button from the 1800's that belonged to my grandpa. Something like that.

      I would love to have photos of my family to share, but, my dad was too cheap to buy a camera, so we have no memories of our childhood.  So, if you have anything, save it, and treasure it.

      Memories are better than nothing at all.
