Lost Daddy 3 weeks ago. age 56

by Jenny Holcomb
(heflin al)

My daddy had been sick for 5 years with chrossis of the liver. He had hepatitis B & C. I helped take care if him the last 3 years. But he entered stage 4 ...9 months ago and no matter how many doctors or Birmingham specialist I took him to..the answer never changed. He made a turn for the worse in June 2014 and we slipped away on July 19, 2014. I was there at his house with him but we were all asleep. He was and will always be my hero and the smartest man I ever knew. It hurts that he won't see my baby sister graduate or walk her down the aisle. Or that I can't go to him for advise and to get his views on life in general. I miss his laugh, his stories, and his heart. I know he is in a better place because he was saved in October 2013, However, I still break down about 3 times a day and at the oddest moments. I keep thinking it's all a bad dream and I pray my mother starts handling it all in a better way. I am Jenny, please keep my family in prayer. His name is Cary and he is dearly missed by 5 daughter's and a wife. From Alabama

Jenny I am so sorry for your loss of your Daddy Cary 3 weeks ago. He was still a young man. Everyone handles grief differently. Your mother lost her husband and she cannot handle her grief in a better way because grief does not work this way. The healing process is slow and Crying is Healthy Grief. I am happy that your Daddy was saved and you will see him again according to God's Promise. Stay close to one another and be supportive respecting how each other expresses their grief. There is no right or wrong way to dealing with grief. It is all about respecting where each person is at in their grief and letting them express this in a loving environment. Please feel free to write back. We are here for you to support you and your Mom should she need this. It is a terrible time for everyone. I lost my husband of 44yrs. to a deadly cancer 2yrs. ago and I could not function for 6 months. I nurtured myself back into life. I believe in God and He was the one who carried me through these last 2yrs. and will do so till I die. I nursed my husband for 3yrs.39days and he had a horrendous cancer journey. This will still affect my grief and your journey with your father will take some time to Heal from. Stay close to God and each other and keep HOPE alive in your hearts. God be with you all and comfort you with His Peace.
