I can't believe I writing this. My father died today, completely unexpected. Just last night we took a nice 4mi walk together, and today he's gone, as is a piece of me.
Stay on your course, my friends. I now realize more than ever--life itself may hang in the balance.
EDIT: my follow-up post
its numm, its not gone. time and reliving moments both real and in your mind, means it goes on. just in another form...you.
my sympathies, windlord
My best wishes are with you. I lost my mother a couple of weeks ago, but, unlike your situation she had been ill for years. The sad but also nice thing is, the last thing you did was spend really quality time with him. That counts for a lot. Knowing the last time I saw my Mum I had been telling her how much I loved her has given me a lot of peace. Take care. You have a huge community sending love.
hugs and warm wishes sent. he lives in you. look at your hands your face hes there guiding and supporting you x
I am sorry for your loss, thanks for the words of wisdom
Thinking about you. You've brought a lot to this community and we hope you know how much it matters that you're helping others. Stay strong. We're here for you.
I send you love, blessings and peace *Hug*
We always need our parents, no matter how old we are. Have you really lost what was most important about him?
Sending much love <3
I'm so sorry to hear that.... My heart goes out to you and the family.
Big hugs to you! You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you for sharing.
I'm late to this conversation, but I know grieving is a continual process. Please allow yourself to feel all the emotions you are feeling...please be gentle and accepting and take in the love being sent to you and your family. Your father is still a big part of you and is a very important part of why you are so loved here. May there be comfort and connections renewed for you in this time...
