There just new sprouts
You can cut off and discard or make new plants with it. I vote for making more plants!
I'm sorry to hear about your Dad mine has passed too. I used to work at nursery for house plants and designed perennial gardens,and I think your plant looks great. These are aerial roots I'd leave them alone. Yuccas are started from sections of the stalk. Pull off dead or dying leaves,cut off leaf tips that get brown using very sharp scissors,& at an angle/diagonally it will look better. House plants do better when they are some what root bound,not in too big of a pot. Give it some Miracle Grow plant food once in awhile(6mos), the granules you mix with water are best. Yuccas like dry soil and lots of bright light.Not direct sun unless it's been used to being in it. It looks very healthy & has new growth. Water thoroughly & only when completely dried out. I have a HUGE houseplant that has been in same 14" pot for years and it is covered in aerial roots winding all around the pot even. I've named it Charlie, I've had him for over 40 yrs., I got him in 1974. Last time I moved him a few years ago I had to put him in a small enclosed U-Haul trailer.
They're roots!! :)
