The Love From My Father Will Always Be Missed

(Fayetteville, NC, US)

My father passed away on August 16, 2012. Through Hospice Care my father was able to spend his last weeks of life in the comfort of his own home along with my mother, brother, sister-in-law, grandchildren and myself. I am my father's daughter and everyday I look in the mirror I am reminded of how much of him was passed on to me. I look just like my dad and share the same intelligence, creativity, stubbornness, compassion and humbleness towards life. It hurts so deep to know that I can't hear my father give me guidance or for him to give me a warm embrace. Everyday is a journey of hoping that one day I can finally accept the fact that my father is gone and I will live the rest of my life without him. There was so much I didn't tell him while he was still conscious and alert. I hope that he heard me when I praised and thanked him for all that he sacrificed inorder to give my brother and I the childhood he never had and how generous he was with his time and money to make sure that my six-year old and I had all the security we needed in the world so we could feel safe and confident because he was fully aware at how scary and difficult it is to be a single-parent in today's society. My father was always there to guide me and correct me when I wasn't motivated enough to work to my fullest potential. I miss my dad so much that a part of me has gone with him but a part of him still lives on through me. I love you dad and you are always with me no matter where I am or what I am doing. Thank you for loving me and keeping me safe up until my age of 36.

My father passed on unexpectedly on 19 February 2013. I feel I will also miss him for the rest of my life, or at least think of him, remember him each day, once the incredibly tender time following his death moves on to a different kind of existence without him. To be inspired by a father and remember his kindness, love and support is a precious thing. I hope it continues to bring comfort and strength to you as you raise your child or children. Diane

I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad. Time will help you get thru this. Take one day at a time and get into a grief share support group if you think it will help. Best Wishes Susan
