You have all my sympathy. I understand the death of a Father. Let out the tears and know we are here praying for you. ((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))))
Life brings tears, smiles and memories. The tears dry, the smile fades, but the memories live on forever.
Many prayers for you.
With deepest sympathy to you and to your family
Oh Maree I can so relate. I knew both of my parents' time was short but it still didn't make their deaths any easier. It's been nearly 3 years since they both passed away (89 days apart) and it still hurts every day.
I say use whatever help you need to see you through the most difficult times. If it's medication, so be it. Believe it or not, eventually the pain from your loss will not be as sharp. It will always be there though, you will never forget.
Best wishes to you.

Maree our lovely Mod- i am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I genuinely hope you find comfort and peace- this must be a terrible time for you. although i have lost family members i have not lost my dad, and will not pretend to understand the pain that must involve. cry, cry, cry. dont let people tell you you have to be "strong for the family" etc. the grieving process is long and complicated and very unique to each person- when i say you are in my prayers- you really are.
Again- im sorry for your loss and more sorry that i cant take that pain away-
I have been thinking of you all day and I remember when my father died, I was 37 or so and he was my one person in the world I knew wold never abandon me............but cancer took him.
I am praying for you. Let those tears out and if your in public, just put on sun glasses............my therapist taught me that one.
Hugs to you my friendKitt
Maree, i recently lost my precious uncle and was given the honour of doing his eulogy. i included this poem at the end cos the words really comforted me at a time when the pain was raw. I hope that maybe you can get some comfort from these words also:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.Where there is hatred, let me sow love;where there is injury,pardon;where there is doubt, faith;where there is despair, hope;where there is darkness, light;and where there is sadness, joy.O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seekto be consoled as to console;to be understood as to understand;to be loved as to love.For it is in giving that we receive;it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
