I feel too long to have lost my lovely Daddy.

I'm twenty and my dad died a few days ago. I'm still dazed by it and I'm not looking forward to when it properly hits me. I feel too young for this. I'm still at university. I still feel like a child.

Losing Daddy
by: Elise

My maiden name was Richardson, so reading Christy's message struck a chord with me. It's so true that losing a Daddy really is so very hard. Dad's are your rock and your foundation, and when you lose them, you feel like you are crumbling. I lost my Daddy on 28th March 2010, and I had to organise everything and look after everything. I also have a young family. Who were also missing their Ganks and have suffered such a massive loss. I have been the anchor to losing Dad and have tried to keep everything going, but have never had any thought for my feelings and have not even been able to grieve properly. It's now a year since I lost my Dad, and the grief will only come and find you! Please just let it take you where it needs to, with help and support... you will find your way. I tried to hide, and it has just found me... and here I am a year later, now just trying to face up to it all............ take care and be strong love. You are not alone XXXX

Too young,
by: KH

I understand that feeling. I left for basic training a little over a month after I graduated high school. I went to tech school right after basic without going home and I was about to visit my family back home for Christmas when I got a phone call saying my dad died. I was only 19 and I'm only 20 right now. I was still in school, I was just starting my life, and I didn't even get to give him a hug as an Airman. I didn't even get to say Merry Christmas to him and I missed all of the holiday I normally spent with him because I was in the military... It's going to hurt for a very long time. Daddy's hold a very special place in our heart that can never be replaced. But it gets easier. Some days are harder, some are easier, memories are bittersweet. But you will always be his daughter, he will always be your daddy, and that love will never disappear. The worst part is not being able to talk to him on the phone and hug him when I'm home visiting... But I know he's still in my heart and sometimes that helps and gets me through the bad days. This site has helped me and my mother a lot. I hope it helps you too. God bless.
