My Dad the best man I ever knew. Sadly and suddenly he passed away. He quietly closed his eyes and went to sleep. My mother found him upon walking inside the house for afternoon lunch. I was there in less than five minutes, but I was too late, he had such a peaceful looking face. The day he passed I walked out from home without even saying goodbye. I miss you so much. You were very dear to me. I want you to know I will never forget you. I was very lucky to have a father like you. I will always remember the things you have done for us. What is there to say other than I missssss you. My life changed forever on September 16, 2011. It's all changed because of you. All this has happened and you are the one that I want to talk about it with. You are one of my best friends. APPA, I never thought the day would come that I would have to say all of this to you. I want to say all the feelings that have been going through me, but I think I would spend more time crying then telling you how I feel. APPA, you have been the strength and support in my life for the past 26 years and I don't know how I'm going to live my life without you here. I question God that how he can take my APPA away from me. You've been a wonderful husband and father. I don't ever want to say goodbye, so I'll say I'll see you later APPA. APPA promise me that you will meet me in my dreams. I miss you terribly. I love you APPA. I love you APPA, I just miss you APPA. I just want to talk with you APPA. I just want to hug you APPA. I just love you APPA. I love you APPA. APPA, I love you very much and I'm proud to be your son!

Love you Dad. Come back I'm alone here
by: Doreen U.K.

Manoj I am sorry for your loss of your father. It is a very lonely place to be. Losing someone as significant as a parent will leave us feeling the loss for a long time to come. Surround yourself with family so that you can support each other at this difficult time. A father is very important in a sons life as he wants to emulate the strong father in his life. Boys want to grow up just like Dad and have the same strengths. Remember your father had to start at the beginning also and develop character and those characteristics he would want to pass on to his son one day. Your father lived well and died well that you could have such a high opinion of him. You have honoured your father well. This is all that a father wants is to be respected and loved. I wish you peace in the midst of your grief and that the days ahead will be better for you.

He is with you.
by: Kelly

Your beloved Appa is with you. I lost my dad last year and I am grieving on a large scale because I also have lost my father and mother in law in the last year. I feel so alone like you, I miss my darling dad so much it's suffocating some days. I am 45 now, but I lost my mum at your age 25. It is numbing, and I do not remember events for about 4 years around the time I lost mum. And its happening again. But your darling appa is with you, as is my beautiful dad. It's just too painful for words how it feels though. I understand. Virtual hugs.

I have lost both my parents, they were older but still I miss them so, then almost the end of the world came for me my youngest son died of alcoholism, the last year was so hard in & out of the hospitals & rehabs, 3 surgeries to stop him bleeding out, he passed away in the last surgery, there is no happiness anymore. my boy is gone, he di do much for me & with me, the hole left in our hearts & lives will never be filled. We must go on for the others we love & love us but, the pain is almost unbearable sometimes, I will pray for you, we will be with them again in Heaven & never to part again, that is what keeps me going knowing this, Bless you young man!
