He was my best freind...a part of me has died too

(Calgary, Canada)

My dad passed away on May 18, 2014. It was an unexpected sudden death.He was not sick nor had any symptoms.He went to bed and had an acute MI in his sleep. Believe it or not he passed away on my wedding anniversary. People have told me that someone who is close and loved you always goes on a day that was special to you.I don't know what to make of it. This emptiness inside is so hard to accept. I keep thinking of his jokes and laughter. It keeps replaying in my head over and over again. I would do anything to just get a hug from him right now. My heart is broken and I don't know if this pain will ever go away. I miss him so much!He loved his family and worked hard for us. I know that he is in a better place and will forever be with us in our hearts.My heart goes out to my mom. She loved him so much and was her life partner. We're lucky enough to have so much support from family and friends. They have kept us going. I would never want anyone to feel the pain we feel. It is hard. Lucky for me the last words to my dad were I love you. I truly believe that was a blessing and gift from God. I think of you everyday dad and will never forget you. I love you with all my heart!

Thank you Isha

Isha please keep going on with your life. I know exactly how you feel.I have been lacking that motivation to go forward because this is so new and hard to accept right now. Today was Fathers Day and all I did was cry. You need to let it out. This first year for the both us is going to be very very difficult, however, remember where there is sadness there is laughter. Where there is rain there is sunshine.We need to remember your mom and my dad would never want us to be hurting because of them. They would want us to try and move forward as much as we can day by day.The pain we feel is like no other. You can't even describe it in words to people.There is no set time limit for healing. It takes time. I know this pain will never go away in our hearts but, we will continue to live life somewhat "normal" again. As crazy as this sounds I talk to him everyday just to keep sane. It helps me. Talk to your mom she will be listening and know she loved you and was proud of her daughter! Hugs to you.

my mom passed away on d 28th of may 2014 .. we had returned from a family trip after many years that very morning. She was asleep with us but on trying to wake her up we got no response. It was because of silent heart attack while she was sleeping. We did not get a chance to even show how much we loved her. She left us so suddenly and its hard to accept the reality. It was my birthday on 6th June and my parents anniversary on the 9th of June. But it was equal to nothing because she was not here... I m a doctor and yet feel helpless that I was unable to do anything for my greatest love and friend... my inspiration is gone as my mom too was a great doctor...
