I've found it helps to write articles to my children. Not write letters, but write a page or two about something that interests me, every now and then. Articles about a book, a political topic, a philosophical subject, a hobby, a memory, whatever. Just write.
I haven't actually given any of these articles to my kids, but they will have access to them when they are adults, and when I am gone.
What I miss most about my father is being able to ask his opinion about things. I miss this about my grandfathers too.
By writing to my kids, I hope to narrow the gap for them.
As they say, I feel your pain. Good luck.
