16 years and it stil hurts......

I lost my father 16 years ago - just after my 15th birthday - and I will turn 31 tomorrow. I know that I never dealt with his death, so it still hurts and makes me weak in the knees from time to time. This year seems to be especially tough. Tonight I took out the ring that he gave to me for my 14th birthday - a beautiful sapphire and diamond 3-stone ring which is now too big for my hand and spend most of its time in my safe. I hate that he isn't here to see what I have done with my life -- good and bad -- and I think his approval would mean so much to me at this point in life. Anyway. Just feeling sad tonight.
