I am so sorry. My dad died of lung cancer. My father in law died OD Alzheimer's.
It is all just wrong. Death is such an enemy.
Here is a link to an article about grieving. It also has links within it that discuss the subject of death,…"
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…"
"I can't believe I have found myself here. My dad died Feb. 5th of lung cancer. Before 9 months ago, he was the healthiest 73 year old I have ever known. It is very hard to believe and accept that he is gone, as for the last 9 months it has been…"
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!

"Tomorrow will be five months since my husband died. I believe in "Better Living Through Chemistry". Thanks to Zoloft I'm not crying all day. I'm functioning better. I sit in his leather chair and smell his…"
I'm a mess too. I lost my husband three years four months ago to cancer and reading your post gives me cause for some "worry" not in the sense that I care but just that I know how difficult this journey is and it is so…"
"Gregg, your partner didn't know how much you would hurt and it probably is a good thing because it would have made his own journey to the door harder. I know, my husband died of cancer and none of our lovers want us to hurt. I…"
"Theresa, four little people need you……I can only hope you will see the light of your husband in their eyes. Please try to take a bubble bath or dig in the garden or something you believe will give you 20 minutes to uncork.…"
