"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…"
"Yes, it would be so nice to have them back just the way they used to be. Today I had a good cry, because my roommate was mean to me and when I defended myself, then he blamed me for raising his blood sugar. My dad had diabetes, too, but…"
"I feel the same way about my dad's favorite movies. I can't watch them without missing him. There's a huge part of my life that I lost because I can't enjoy a lot of things anymore because he's not here with me. When I…"
"dream moon JO B, your messages touched my heart. I feel the same way about my dad. We also were soul mates. Once you've known such happiness with another person it's hard to live without it. We watched Kukla,…"
"I know what you mean, dream moon JO B. People want us to be happy so they don't have to feel sad with us. It's all about their feelings, not ours. If they haven't lost anyone, then they don't know how it feels,…"
"Thank you, dream moon JO B. Yes, it's just not the same without our loved ones. Even if I were to meet someone I think is wonderful, there's no guarantee he or she would stay in my life, but the love of a good parent only dies…"
"I just had another birthday without my dad. I had a fairly nice birthday with lots of people sending me their good wishes, mostly on Facebook, but I still miss my dad. It was so wonderful to have someone in my life who understood me, who…"
"I'm still missing my dad, too, dream moon JO B. It's been four years since he died, and I still wish we could talk, and enjoy movies and music together as we did for many years. But the years went by too quickly. Even the…"
"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…"
"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…"
"How is everyone doing? It's been three years since my dad died. I still miss him every day. I still dream about him and wish I could turn back time. There isn't much left that I haven't said about him on this and other forums, but I…"
"This is the third anniversary of my dad's death. I think about him every day. I miss him so much, because he was the nicest man I ever met. Life will never be as happy without him, unless someone just as wonderful comes into my life, but I…"
I am so sorry for your loss. The journey of caregiving is extremely difficult. The loss of our especially loved dear ones is unspeakable.
There are so many different ideas about what happens to us when we die. Religion teaches many different…"
"I just feel like I am in a fog. I have a little dog that is at least ten years old. She adored my Mom & she has really grieved for her. I know how you feel about your dog. I worry about her. She is all I have. …"
"Me too Brett, I sit here an look at my 12 year old Labrador and I know he is on borrowed time, and my heart breaks, losing him will be something that I am not looking forward to.
As you said Brett, we have the live our lives until we are called…"
"Yes, I was looking at something that popped up on my Yahoo news feed. It was an article naming 106 celebrities who have passed away in 2019. So many names and faces that I remembered. Now they are gone, and they aren't coming back. Their time…"
"Brett so true she was my security blanket
I feel like I have no one to lean on that understood me like her
You know what keeps coming in my mind. How true it is and scary that everything has a beginning and an end."
"I hear it all the time you don’t know how lucky you were that your mother wasn’t sick and you didn’t have to take care of her I say to them lucky I was lucky that my mother died and I was not right by her side to tell her I love…"
"M, the problem is that our security blankets were ripped away.
Like you, sometimes I am glad to be sad. I feel like I am closer to my mom when I am crying. At least, her memory is fresher with me when I am in that zone.
I feel like the hard reality…"
"Theresa, millions, billions of people have lost their moms. Sometimes someone will tell me that they have lost their mom, too, but they were able to deal with it, and they wonder why I haven't dealt with it as well. This may sound like an…"
"Me too ...I was sitting marking a paper yesterday and suddenly realized that I can’t see or talk to my mother about this or anything else and the tears came. But I’m glad to think of her, in a way I can be glad to be sad sometimes.…"
"I sometimes will just be sitting down and I start to cry because I keep thinking I miss my mom so much my whole world is just not the same I think that I’ve become a different person it will be four years and I still cry
I can’t put into…"
"Definitely a colder world now. I like the image of the security blanket — like, as we go forward, we will always keep it but eventually may be able to wash it, fold it nicely, and put it in some place of honour close at hand but without…"
"It is such a traumatic event, especially when you have had a wonderful Mom. It is so hard knowing she is gone. Knowing this is permanent. There is no one that can fill the void she left. My brother was close to Mom, but he…"

"While I never forget that my mom is gone, for some reason it just hits me over the head sometimes. Just out of the blue I'll be like, "Mom is gone." It's horrible. It's ever present. And the thing is that it is always with…"
"My Mom also. I could always talk to her about anything & knew she was someone I could totally trust. I am constantly thinking of something I want to share with her & then I remember she is gone. I loved spending time with…"
