I am so sorry. My dad died of lung cancer. My father in law died OD Alzheimer's.

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
I am so sad for your heart being so broken. I know exactly what you are feeling. Take one hour at a time. Cry....let your feelings flow. We grieve as we love - deeply. How blessed you are to have a father who loves you and whom you love so much! Note I use present tense. He is still your dad. You are still his daughter. He is just in another place. Another part of his journey. Life does not just stop when we leave these bodies. Imagine where he is and perhaps that will help you process your missing his physical self. My mother has come and visted me and it was amazing!

"I understand the problems associated with complex relationships and how the feelings of grief manifest in ways when relationships with the deceased are unresolved.
The regrets can be very powerful and confusing and difficult to work with.
