You have my condolences. Losing a parent is never easy, even if they are ready to go. So much of our identity is wrapped up in our parents. When my elderly dad, then my mom passed, my 50-something sister said "We're orphans now" which I found strangely poignant, if a little odd. We never outgrow our need for parents. Hugs to you.

Sorry for your loss. My DH & I sort of feel like orphans, too. Both sets of parents have been gone many years ago, & our siblings died within the past few yrs. I have a SIL & some cousins, but we both still miss our parents. May God give you peace & comfort. With my thoughts & prayers.

Oh sweetie, I am so very sorry for your loss. :icon_sniff:

I lost my Dad eight months ago, and I'm still having a hard time. Every first holiday without him, heck every first everything without him here tears me up. Even eating meals, I had to feed him at the end, and when I'm mindlessly spooning something into my mouth, his face pops into my mind. I'm hoping that when the anniversary of his death happens on 12/20...maybe for the new year, I can turn it around and start having only good memories and not so much sadness.

I wish you peace and comfort, and the hope that the good memories come sooner. Be good to yourself. http://www.pic4ever.com/images/16.gif

May the happy memories comfort you in this time of loss.

oh gosh, I am so sorry you have lost your dad. My dad passed away 30 years ago and I still miss him and his hugs and the talks we had.

Praying for comfort for you.

My heart hurts as I read your post... I ALWAYS am sad when I read about the loss of a loved one. I wish there were magic words to help you and to convey the sadness we feel as we read your post. I pray for you and for your family that God will bring you comfort. If your daddy was old and sick and suffered for 6 months, he is now out of pain and no longer suffering. Find comfort in knowing that your forum friends are thinking of you. Bless you.

My sincere condolences for your loss. It's not easy to lose one of your parents even if we know in our head it is for the best, our hearts think differently.

August 22nd, 2016, 01:09 AM
made it through the day. Thanks everyone it was nice to know prayers were being sent. I know it was for the best. he was so sick and I picture him being so much better off. The lord will get me through this. (and my forum friends)). and my family. I did have almost 3 years with him before he got so sick and I couldn't take care of him anymore. Actually it was the fall, he fell on the way out to the pool and that was the end of life as he knew it. I am OK, I'm just sad. wish I could see him one more time. Goodnight my friends thanks again

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad.((hugs)) It's not easy to lose a parent the only thing I can say is he is in a much better place now with no pain or suffering.That's the thought that helped get me through my Mother's death.

August 22nd, 2016, 06:21 AM

So sorry for your loss. It hurts deeply when we lose a parent.

August 22nd, 2016, 11:31 AM
I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's death. Losing parents is something we all have to face up to sooner or later and it is just the hardest thing to get over. Just remember we are all thinking of you. Time is the only healer here, it sounds so trite but it is true.

August 22nd, 2016, 03:53 PM
OMG! I am so very sorry your Daddy passed. I lost mine 42 yrs ago but let me say I still miss him every day. Some advice I give to everyone who loses a loved one...Cry when you have to but laugh/smile when you are able. I'll pray for you & your family as you grieve. Come here when you want a shoulder to lean on.

It is hard to lose a parent, and especially a Dad. I lost mine 22 years ago. I was not as close to him as I was to my Mom, but I felt like I had lost my rock. My Mom died 4 years befor he did, and I realized then how I had been influenced by him. Things will be better as time goes on, and we have to remember to think how much better he is now than when he was sick and miserable here. Prayers are with you.
