Well said? Not likely.
Even though the latter part of the statement was particularly true for that person. I know I shouldn't write that, but I couldn't stop myself.
I digress. Back to my theme for this post.
Perhaps "not so good" applies to your memories of your father. If so, that is unfortunate. If that is your story, make good memories for others. For your kids. For your grandkids. For the child next door whose father is AWOL. For the child in Sunday School, Youth Group, etc. For your athletes, students, band members, etc.
Since "good" applies to my memories, Thanks Dad!
