My precious Dad

by Rozie
(Pittsburg, Ks.)

We haven't buried my Dad yet. He died May 8th at Golden Living Center, a nursing home he had been in for 2 months. I think I still feel in denial yet. We are gonna go see him at the funeral home tomorrow and I dread it.

My Dad was 90 when he passed away. I know he had lived a long life but it still hurts though. My children are young so they haven't got to spend a lot of time with him. He was older when he had me.

We bury him on Thursday in OK. I will be glad when everything is over at least a part of me feels that way and then another part of me I don't know how I feel.

Your dad
by: Mari

I am very sorry about the loss of your dad. I know a dad is someone very precious.You must have loved him very much.

It is very hard to go through that but God will help and stand by you along the way.Time is a great healer and you will always remember your dad as someone special.

He is safe now with the Lord. It is important that you take care of yourself and share your feelings with others. This is a wonderful board for that purpose.

May God bless and comfort you.

Parents - Our Greatest Loss
by: Down Under

Rozie, my condolences on the loss of your father. No matter how old our parents are when they pass, it doesn't make the pain any easier, if any thing it probably makes it harder as we think they'll still be around for years to come. You would still be in a state of either denial or shock at this early stage. Take brace and be prepared for that horrible feeling of GRIEF when it hits. There are many stages and we all go through them at some point, just one piece of advice from me is do not hold it in, as it will only drag you down further. Cry, scream, get angry, what ever it is that you feel at that moment, let it out. Let people around you know what you are feeling and ask them to be patient with you and ask them to just be there for you to lean on. I wish you all the best in the days to come Rozie and keep visiting this site, it has helped me get through losing my father last year.
