Sad daughter

(San Leandro)

My Dad just died 1/20 and was interred 1/26. Now that the hurried preparations for the service are completed I'm left with time to feel & it hurts. I have a 9 year old and am trying to stay positive for her, but sometimes I'm just so damned sad. I've been looking at pictures, taking walks, and writing, I know Dad is at peace now, no more pain, loss of dignity, & dependency on others. We were blessed that we had him for more than a year after a catastrophic stroke that left him changed, but still smiling & determined. He never gave up. I will honor my father's memory by living my "best life" through service, kindness & consideration. I will honor my relationships AND HELP SUPPORT MY BROTHER & MOTHER IN ANY WAY i CAN.

As I read your post, your situation is so similar to mine. Even the date of our fathers' deaths are the same. I do not know the year of your post but it has only been a bit over a month for me. Like you I am trying to be strong for my mother and brothers. Like you I am trying to be strong for my children, although they are a bit older than yours. And like you I want to honor my father's memory by being strong and living a good life. One of service to to others, to honor the giving and charitable character of my father. Don't know quite where to begin with that and was wondering how you were doing. The words in your post are ones that I say to myself everyday trying to find a way to assimilate the loss. Sometimes it is hard trying to be strong for others when my heart is completely broken. But I know that it what he would have wanted. I hope that are on your way to healing and wish you continued strength and peace. Weren't we lucky to have such wonderful fathers.
