I lost my 'beautiful' father 3 years ago this coming up Tuesday!

by Sharon
(Henderson, NV)

My name is Sharon. I'm the youngest of 7 kids. My Dad died June 15, 2007 - that was the saddest day of my life!! My Dad was in the hospital due to some unexplained and unexpected stomach pains. After only a few days in the hospital, he was expected to be released the next day. I remember getting the call from my Mom first telling me Daddy was in the hosp and wasn't doing too good. I remember calling the hosp and them telling me that he was definitely doing better and was going to actually be released the next day - I was very happy and relieved.

I remember getting the call from one of my sisters later that night. I remember when the phone rang, not knowing what was in store for me - I was too emotionally drained from the days' news that Daddy was even IN the hosp that I just couldn't bear to even talk to her - the message went into voicemail. I didn't listen to voicemail for an hour or so - I was too worked up from the news that Daddy was in the hosp and my heart had been on overdrive since.

When I finally did listen to the vm and it was my sister's voice telling me Daddy had died - I was SO CONFUSED and ..... I can't even think of a word that would describe what else!!! I can STILL feel the way I felt that day today as I tell my story - the feeling is STILL SOOO fresh in my being. ..! I MISS MY DAD SOOO MUCH!! I'm the youngest and has ALWAYS been referred to as the 'baby'. I lost my hero that day and my life hasn't been the same since! I still miss him so raw as it is just happened today! Yet I have days where I can remember him and have such joy in the memory - feel sooo much love being blessed to have had a Dad that loved me soooo much.

No matter what was happening he was there for me - I barely got in any trouble with him - no matter what he couldn't stay mad at me. When I used to visit home, he would ALWAYS cry when it was my turn to leave - he wouldn't do that for the others. HE WAS AND IS, TO ME, A VERY, VERY, VERY SPECIAL DAD! Thank you for listening (reading)

My beautiful dad michael
by: Anonymous

I lost my day a year and three months ago to cancer. There is not a day goes by when I don't think of him and it hurts so much. I still can t believe he is not here. He loved life so much and was such a good and kind man.

He was so special as he brought my sister and me up single handed and was mum and dad at the same time. He used to say children don't ask to be brought into this world and should be looked after. I am not a violent man but if I saw anyone harming a child I would roll up my sleeves and get stuck in. Bless him he was so gentle and caring I could never imagine him getting stuck in as he used to say.

He did a lot of charity work and never looked for recognition .

He was so positive and never complained, he was so brave and cheerful and faced the cancer with such strength and dignity. We are so proud of him.

We miss him so much

also a beautiful dad

I lost my special dad only 2 days ago. He means the world to me. I am completely honored to be his daughter. His name is Michael and anyone who had the honor to meet him knew he was not only a good man but a complete gentleman. I'm going to miss him very much. He was the man that would stop to help some stranger change a flat tyre as he was a retired motor mechanic some time ago. I don;t usually speak of personal matters but i just would like to share my dad's life to someone. I love him so very deeply. Rest in peace my beautiful father. xx

I feel your pain
by: Ebony2008

I want to start by saying I am soooo glad I found this website. I have been looking for something like this for the longest. My dad left this earth 4 yrs ago on August 29, 2007. I remember it like it was yesterday. I still have my moments when I break down and cry. You will never stop missing him. I was 16 when he died and I'm 21 now. I wish he was here to watch and help me and my sister grow up and go through school, but he's not. If it were not for my relationship with Jesus Christ, I would've gone insane and been in a mental hospital. The pain will always be there but knowing that he is in a wwaayyyy better place brings me peace and helps me get through the day. Just know that there are people like me praying for you and your family. Wish you the best.

i feel the same way u do, i'm the baby of the family, i lost my dad 3 years in august 24,2007 and i know what ur going through. my life isn't the same either and i wish i can bring him back to earth and live happy with him again.

you have to believe he's in a better place, not suffering anymore, and know he loves you and never wanted to leave you. As I'm coping the same emotions everyday without him and it's hard to live without your dad. Take comfort that he will be waiting for you in heaven along with all your loved ones.

Loss of a Dad
by: Down Under

Sharon, condolences on the loss of your dad. I lost my dad Aug 09 and it is such a horrible feeling, unexplainable unless you have lost a parent. I feel your pain. Keep those happy memories alive in your heart & soul. Warm wishes sent your way. xo
