My dad passed away yesterday after an 8 year battle with lung cancer and he wanted to be buried in his sweater vest. Unfortunately, his dog has destroyed it and I've checked online at Conrad's, Buckeye Corner and everywhere else i can think of but I can't find anyplace that still carries them. If anyone out there knows where in Columbus I can find one, please, let me know.

I've sent you my address. Hopefully, the funeral home can make it work. This is an incredibly selfless gesture and there's no way I can thank you enough.

Just saying thank you all seems far to inadequate but since I still can't up vote, it's all I have.

I appreciate the offers and the kind words. BigBadBuck nailed it when he said putting things right one last time was so important. My dad is the reason I love the Buckeyes. He took me to my first football game, my first basketball game, he educated me on Buckeye lore and when I thought we weren't going to fulfill one of his last wishes, I felt like I was going to be physically ill. I expected the 11W community to come through for me with some place to buy one but I never expected anything like BroJim and BuckNutzGasMan offered. I can't find the words to express my gratitude.

Please know that many of us are thinking of you during this difficult time, SGT. My dad's favorite colors were scarlet and gray, and we buried him in his gray suit with scarlet tie. I wish you peace.

Condolences SGTMDX. My Dad passed away a month ago. I know what a difficult time this is. My prayers are with you. I know how important it is to make the final wishes of your loved ones happen. It warms my heart all the offers you had from people to send you their vests. BroJim, you are a good person. Upvotes aren't much reward for a selfless offer like yours, but it's what I can do. So you got a few from me.

Sgt, I read a previous comment of yours on the Josh Perry thread and I just want to say you have my most sincere and deepest condolences for the loss of your father. You should also know you no doubt have an army of 11W's prayers at your disposal for the other fight you are in. Buckeye Strong.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

My condolences to your family.  I also lost my Dad last month and not a day goes by that I don't think about him.  It's incredibly hard.  He spent his last month in a hospital undergoing numerous surgeries.  I was able to go get the tattoo I've been wanting for years, which is my avatar pic, it spells "Dad" in sign language as my Dad was deaf.  He got to see it before he passed which meant a lot.  Stay strong, fellow Buckeye.  Your family is in my thoughts.
