Loss of my Dad

by Katie

My Dad passed away on July 13, 2011 after a 7 month battle of aggressive lung cancer. I was 20 years old at the time and very close with my Dad. I was and still am a Daddy's girl. My Dad was 63 years old and had been married to my Mom for 21 years. Even though he's been gone for more than a year, I still find it hard to believe and accept the fact that he won't come back.I loved that man more than life itself. I miss him every day. He died two months before my big milestone of turning 21. Celebrating this birthday was anything but fun. My heart broke when I found out he wasn't coming to wish me a happy 21st. I've celebrated two birthdays without him and it's still very hard. I don't know when life will get better because he was such an important person to our family. His very fine person is greatly missed by everyone who knew him. It's going to take me the rest of my life coming to terms with the fact that my Dad died from me at an age where he was still needed. I still needed his advice and help to cope with hardships of life. All in all, it just breaks my heart that my Dad is no longer here.

Loss of my Dad.
by: Doreen U.K.

Katie I am sorry for your loss of your Dad from lung cancer a year ago. I lost my husband to lung cancer 6 months ago. My husband go his lung cancer from working with asbestos. There was no HOPE and NO CURE.
We never outgrow our fathers and still need them to support us in the difficult times. Our father's are our role models. This will be greatly missed now.
We will only cope with a loss like this one day at a time. My 3 Adult children have lost a father and finding it hard to go on life. May God comfort you in your Sorrow and Grief.
