     Sorry for your loss Kay. shakehead   Words cannot express the loss of somebody you are close too, especially a family member, and even more so, a parent.

Kay, I am sorry for your loss. I lost my father 7 years ago. I could say the time tested responses, but I know they didn't help me much.

I am praying for you.

Kay, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I totally understand how you feel, as I lost my father back in 1996 and my mother 18 months later. All I can is it tough, but as time goes on it does get a little easier to handle. You will always miss him no matter what. Right now you are like a raw open wound. My heart goes out to you. Please take care of yourself, gentle hugs and prayers coming your way. to you and your family.

May all of his goodness stay with you and remain a vibrant part of your happiness later as the grief assuages.

We are all fortunate to have had wonderful fathers. Their memories last beyond our lives and into the lives of those whom our fathers showed their strength and love to.

Prayers going up for your strength to return soon and for life to be brighter with each passing day.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and I wish there was but know there probably isn't anything I can say to ease your pain, but know we are here for you and thinking of you and giving you strength. It's such a strange rollercoaster of emotions when you lose someone, but that's normal to feel how you are, we are here for you. xx

Kay I am truely sorrry for your loss! I know the feeling well, as I have lost both my parents, they say time heals all wounds, well that is not exactly true, does seem to ease the pain somewhat! Right now is a very tough time for you, the emptyness that you feel, I know seems overwhelming, so Please be gentle with yourself Kay!
 I am enclosing a link to a post that I made here on the Chronic Pain forum back  in 23 April 2009 scroll down to 2pm post and you will see two poems that I posted, they always brought me comfort, when I think about the loss of my parents. Maybe they will  also help you  in some way. Here is the link:
I give you my Condolences.......Peace be with YOU
