Papa moved on...

by Joy

Lost my papa on August 9th, 2013 after a 5 month struggle with cardiac/respiratory issues. As a health care professional myself, I feel that what ever happened was probably the best for him because he was truly "SUFFERING". However, there is not a day where I don't think of him. Special birthdays and anniversaries are not special anymore. Yes,I am so lost without him! I keep thinking about those old times...
Life is keeping me busy between kids, work, home; BUT, I feel his loss when I am alone..
Papa was only 69 and had so many beautiful things to look forward to. The fact that I will never see him again or talk to him again, tears me apart inside.
Don't know how people live through this grief..
So lost without you PAPA! AND you have moved on...

Joy I am so sorry for your loss of your Papa. I lost my beloved husband of 44yrs. to cancer 18 months ago and I feel so lost without him. It is not having him around and losing those special occasions and celebrations that is lost now forever. I dread all the anniversaries coming up and the loss is still fresh. I can only cope with my grief one day at a time. I can't look ahead and only live in the moment, and when the next day comes I live only for that day. It will take us months or even years to suddenly find ourselves in a normal place of recovery from grief. All we can do is keep writing in and supporting each other through our grief.
