Just lost my Dad the day before Father's Day.  June 16, 2018.  I miss him every day and I love him still.  He used to take me fishing as a kid no matter how hot it was and how miserable he was watching me fish, he would go.  I miss talking to him on the phone and just hearing his voice.  I can't go a day without feeling some sort of despair, but I have to go on.  I gained so much weight and sank into a deeper depression.  He wouldn't want to see me like this.  I don't want to see me like this.  I will see him again.  He is waiting for me in Heaven, and I'm sure he will greet me when I get there.

my dad would hug me like i was the most special person in the world. when he died i lost a dad, a friend,and a mentor. my whole world looked different. it all seemed darker and more confusing. i know he would want me to find peace and joy life. he died 2 years ago and sometimes i still wait for his call. my dad was larger than life. but i guess he wasnt larger than death.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! I remember how my dad and I used to have corned beef and cabbage every year without fail. During Lent he would bring home hot cross buns. On Easter he would buy big cookies shaped like rabbits, ducks and chicks, and a big Easter lily that smelled so sweet. I miss him so much. He was the nicest man I ever knew.

Missing my dad as much as ever. Such a sweet man deserved so much more happiness than he got to enjoy. Life is so unfair.

Dear Jennifer, I am so sorry for your loss.  I wish you peace and comfort.  Losing a beloved parent is one of the hardest things in life, especially after losing your children's dad. A friend of mine who also lost her father was reading the New York Times where they had a story about grief.  There is no "magic" cure for grief. Two authors of books on grief basically said there is no right way or wrong way to grieve and there is no timeline for grief either.   They recommended doing what works to make you feel better and stop those things that don't. It is important to allow yourself to tell your story over and over until you can accept your loss. Many relatives, friends and acquaintances aren't comfortable talking about sadness, which is why it is often necessary to seek help from online grief forums, grief counsellors and grief support groups.  Most people who aren't currently in grief or who are in denial will tell you to get over it.  Not everyone is as sensitive or bonded to their father the way we were.  The more people tell you to get over it, the harder you will hang onto it.  You really need to get your feelings and memories about this devastating experience out, over and over, until you come to terms with your grief. 

You will never be completely over it, but you will learn how to live with your grief. You will be happy again, over time, but not in the same way.  Death is a natural part of life, so whoever designed our brains has included everything we need to cope with death (even our own).  We just need to believe that we will get through our grief and that we will be stronger and wiser as a result of our suffering.

Unfortunately, grief is the price of love.  The more we loved someone and interacted with them the harder it is to let them go, but this is something practically every human being has to deal with at some point.  The only alternative is not to love anyone at all, but as Leonardo da Vinci once said, "A life without love is no life at all."

hello, thank you all for being here. my Father passed away in November this past year. I haven't stopped crying or hoping he will call and tell me this has all been a mistake. His death was very sudden and very unexpected. Several years ago my children lost their Dad to cancer. That was very hard on our family, but we coped somehow. This has been so sudden I'm not sure how to process or deal? I'm just sad and in shock. I don't know what else to say except I feel like a part of me died that day also. I don't know how to get through this.............thanks for reading/listening/whatever..........i'm trying to make an effort. Because I know I can't just let this depression ruin my life. My dad would not want that for me. I don't want that for myself.

I know how you feel. Seeing my dad in dreams is a great comfort to me, too.

While I was sleeping

It has been 4 years since my mom died.  I still think about it every day, and can't seem to look past it.  I know I need to go grocery shopping.  I know I need to entertain my 4 year old but before I do anything today I want to share what has helped me tremendously in making my mom's death easier to live with.The first thing that helps is remembering her and being stubborn about NOT letting her go.  I don't have to let my mom go.  She already went.  The thing I do have to do is admit how I feel…See More
