Lena continued,

"I am able to smile because my dad made me laugh so much. I do feel very lucky. he loved my brother and me so much. we got to tell all these stories and go on all these road trips."

Redford added,

"Even when he was on hospice, we snuck in a road trip to see his sisters in Utah. It was an objectively Bad Idea, but he loved those. Addicted to them!!! Classic rock and candy, too. anyway, I love my mom and my brother and my dad forever."

Following her post, many fans took to the comment section to pay their condolences. 

One fan, Myla Dalbesio, wrote,

"I’m so sorry to hear this; dads are the best. From my experience, the pain of losing him will never go away, but it will get easier and easier to deal with as time goes on. And he will live on in all the things he taught you, and memories you made together."

Dalbesio continued, 

"I always say that when someone dies, it’s not that they’re gone from you forever; they’re actually WITH you forever in your heart and head and the air around you and the dirt in the mountains and the water in the ocean. They’re able to be with you even more than when they were physically alive. Anyways, sending you a big hug. He seems like an amazing dad. 💕"

Another fan, Sarah Brokaw, wrote, 

"Biggest hug Lena. I remember Jamie telling me a story about how much he loved you. So much so that he would chew up the airplane pretzels and put them in your mouth because you were not old enough to chew the pretzels. I remember him telling me the story, and I almost barfed."

Sarah added,

"He simply got a kick out of my facial expression and tilted his head back and laughed so hard. You know, the 'Jamie laugh.' Now that I am a parent, I too would chew up pretzels for my son. That’s what we parents do for our babies. No matter how old our babies become. I will miss your Dad Lena. And that laugh... that laugh has left an indelible mark on my heart."
