I Miss my Dad

by TED

I'm 50. My dad died 18 months ago at the age of 95. Most people I know laugh at me when I cry and say I miss my dad. After all I'm 50, and my dad did live to what people call a ripe old age of 95, so why is this big, strong 50 yr old, crying. Because Dad was just soooooooo awesome that I want more of him. I want to go fishing with him. I want to sit and discuss the news with him, sit and watch the football matches with him, Go get a haircut together like we used to, sit and watch the sunset over his beloved beach like we used to, listen to our favorite songs together... so many wonderful times that he gave me. I miss all that and wonder, will I ever meet anyone else who will be so wonderful? Even at my age, when you are given something so beautiful and then it ends...you cry. So, even at my age, I cry. Sometimes in sorrow, sometimes in jo -to say thank you God for giving me such an awesome father.

I miss my dad from India
by: silver

GOD didn't make us very different.Anyone who says that men can't cry is just plain uninformed(only word I could think of)My dear darling departed husband cried at sad movies.He cried when his mother and my mother died. He cried when his father died.There is n-o-t-h-i-n-g wrong with a man crying.To me it shows that a man is human,not machine.The age of death doesn't matter either.My baby sister was 44.My husband was 61. My parents were 80 & 81.My grandchildren were 2 1/2 and 4 months.Death comes to all. We are on this earth for a limited time and we are supposed to love each other.It is human to grieve and it is different for each person we send home and each of us who remain.Take your time and may GOD BLESS and keep you.I pray for you.

I Misss my Dad

Ted I am sorry for your loss of your Dad. It doesn't matter what age you are. You have feelings and emotions and these will be expressed naturally when you lose someone in death. We cry. This is GRIEF. We bleed when we cut ourselves. This is reality. I am 64yrs. and I cry. My father is 91yrs. When he dies I WILL CRY. This is how we are created. TO FEEL. I just wished that DEATH. LOSS. GRIEF. didn't hurt so much. It is because we LOVE that WE CRY. WE MOURN. WE FEEL SORROW. I am so glad that you had a wonderful relationship with your father, and that you HONOUR HIM even in death. Grief has to do its work no matter how longs this takes we will be in pain for a while till HEALING takes place in us. Go ahead and Cry all you need to. This is Grief and it is where our HEALING comes from.
