i miss you

by dan

its been 4 years since you passed, you were my stepfather, but you raised me from birth, my biological dad wasn't around very much and you took it in your stride to provide for me and my other siblings, you worked hard to make sure we had a roof over our heads and food on the table, i was 15 when you left this world, and you been only 32, i found that extremely hard to believe, when i was told i thought it was a sick joke, or that i was dreaming, reality hit and a part of me died that day, its hard to even stifle the tears when someone mentions your name or something you used to do, songs make me well up inside and catch a lump in my throat, i kept a tough exterior to help support the rest of the family, i had to be the rock for my mother and i took it upon myself to become the father figure to your daughter (my sister) who was only 6 and didnt understand, she's coming to realise now and asks me questions, she asked me the other day how you passed and i couldnt answer, i left the room and burst into tears, what made it worse was the last time i saw you before you died was 3 weeks, i still remember the last words you said to me, and i wish i could just have 5 more minutes just to say the things i probably didnt say enough, tommorow is 4 years since you passed, and the hurt hasn't stopped, i miss you and will try to stay strong for the family, we all miss you greatly, you were my inspiration to be a good person, to try and make a difference, i still cant believe your gone.

I miss you
by: Doreen UK

Dan I am sorry for your loss of a very special step-father. You had a good mentor and father to show you how to become a man. He died so young and had a character and maturity level that has forged itself in you. You must be 19yrs of age now and show such a maturity beyond your years. You have become a very responsible young man and showing a lot of care for the family you have left now. Your mother will be trying to recover from her grief in these last 4yrs. I am so happy your mother has you for her son and for the support you are giving the family. Remember that life goes on. We do have our limitations and boundaries and I hope you won't put your own life on hold. That you will in time give time to what you want to do with your life and should you ever meet a girl and get married. I am sure you will always care for your mother and sister.
May you be blessed in life and find the happiness from grief that you all deserve. Best wishes.
