I lost my dad on June 17. He was my biggest supporter, and we were extremely close. I feel lost without him.

I am so sorry Mary Kay. Our hearts were broken when we lost our dad. My sister-in-law had told us to prepare that tears and grief would come in waves...out of nowhere. One of my cousins had lost her dad before us and she spoke some wise words to us: (please forgive the bad word.) "Dear, dear Cousins,
It's gonna hurt like a sonofabitch for awhile. Then one day will come when you notice you haven't thought about it for an hour or so. And then the times between will get longer. And then something, you never know what, will grab at your heart and it will hurt just like it did at first. Those of us who have already lost their dads wish we could take some of the pain away. But as I told my boys when their daddy died - the saddest thing would be that if nobody cared, nobody cried. God is good and faithful and will get you through."

Another dear friend said there will come a day when we will be able to share memories of him without crying...I was clinging for that day.

Praying for you.

Welcome, Mary Kay, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I can relate to everything you wrote about the loss of your beloved dad, except I was alone with him in the hospital when he passed away. It's the worst thing in the world to lose the person you love best, no matter what relation they are to you. I don't have any relatives close by to comfort me. I do have a grumpy roommate though who is better than nothing, but now he's in the hospital with Covid-19! These are very stressful times for most people, so I can only imagine how hard it is to lose your dear father. It's horribly hard even in the best of times. My dad also had congestive heart failure and he died just two days after Christmas in 2014.

My heart goes out to you and I hope you will find some comfort in expressing your feelings. Everyone here understands what you are going through. God bless you and give you strength to carry on and support your mother in this time of sorrow.
Even after five years I still miss my dad terribly but the intensity of grief does diminish over time. You never get over it, you just learn to live with it. I wish you the very best as you begin your journey through grief. Take care, and remember you were as much a blessing to your father as he was to you.

I am a newbie.  I lost my father on May 22nd at 2.22am. He was 92 years old.  Loosing him is the hardest thing I have ever gone through.  I really miss him.  We were able to have a funeral for him but there were so many things we couldn't do because of the virus Covid 19. My mom, sister and myself were with him when he passed away which was great.  But I just can't get it out of my mind.  He had Alzhiemers and Congestive heart failure.  It was so hard that last week of his life to see him suffer like he did. I have not been able to sleep ever since.  Everyone really loved my dad.  He was such a good person, very passive, respectful and non judgemental.  He made sure us kids had everything we needed when growing up and then was there always for his 21 grand children.  I have some wonderful memories of a full and grateful life my dad gave to me and my siblings.  But I now have this void.  I keep being told he is in a better place, and that is true but I want him here with me and then I feel selfish about that.  I used to think that if I could go before him I wouldn't be in so much pain of loosing him.  The fact that I am never going to see him again is so terribly difficult for me.  I miss him so much.  I love him so much. And have had some unusual things happen since his passing.  No matter how you look at it, there is nothing worse then loosing a parent when it comes to death.  You have known them the longest and they are or should be always there for you.  Both my parents were absolutely wonderful in that area.  I guess maybe it helps to write my thoughts down, good therapy maybe.  But still I will always have this piece of my heart missing, a void in my life.  I want to hold his hand and kiss his cheek and tell him I love him.  But I can never do that again.  I guess that is it for now.  Sorry for this being so long.  Stay safe and healthy everyone.  Thank you for your patience.  Hugs to all that have lost a parent, I understand your loss.  Stay strong and talk to someone you love about what you are going through.  That is the only thing that helps me.  Thanks again.  MaryKay

dream moon JO B, are you saying that your dad told one of his dirty jokes through the medium at the spiritualist church?   That's amazing!  I have  five different friends who have gone to a spiritualist church to try to hear from their loved ones who have passed on.  They are convinced that the dead live on in the afterlife.  However, I am afraid to go to the spirit church because I heard that bad spirits can imitate our loved ones, too, and I don't want a bad spirit following me home.  One Chinese friend told me that his brother went to an antique store and when he came home, his other brother who is psychic, asked him, "Where have you been, because you brought some spirits home with you."  He had been looking at some old Chinese funeral shrines at the antique shop.   I have heard so many stories from people I know who claim to have seen or heard spirits, that I think they must exist.
