I think it would be very interesting to discover this aspect of your dad that you did not know existed and to be able to read posts of his on these boards.Actually, I knew about his interest in the stock market. In my family, we're on a constant quest for knowledge about *everything*, so his interest in the Fool was actually no surprise, either. What did surprise me, though, was that he had invested a gob of money with a "professional" at Morgan Stanley. The pro did a fine job of losing more than 60% of the investment through active trading over the last 3 years, as well as charging a great big annual fee to do it. We're going to be moving the remaining money to Ameritrade (where he had some other stuff), now that we finally got it transferred into my mom's name.I *am* a bit surprised that he didn't post more. He had been a member since 2000, but only posted 9 times.It's funny that I'm reluctant to sell any of the stocks that he purchased himself (without the pro's help). I'm not sure why - maybe in the back of my head I think that the stocks he picked had some sort of significance.My condolences for your loss.Thank you.SS
