I'm sorry for your loss, Candlelight. We're here for you if you need us.
Deepest sympathies Candlelight.
It's been over five years since my own dad passed away and let me tell you,that saying that time is a healer is wrong.All time does is throw the distractions of life in your way.
Before all of this I was your typical stoic tough-guy,or so I thought.When my dad died I cried like a child and now whenever I hear a sad(or indeed an uplifting)news story,I'm off,waterworks at the drop of a hat.
And perhaps that's no bad thing.
I am very sorry for your loss
My deepest condolences to you and to your family.
Sorry to read that, C. Take care.
My condolences, Candlelight. My father also died of lung-related problems, about six months ago.
And mine as well.
I'm very sorry for your loss. It seems especially cruel to lose a close family member close to the holidays. You really don't get over it; you just have to get through it.
Oh man I am so sorry....
I don't presume to know what you're going through, Candlelight, but I'm sorry for your loss.
So very, very sorry for your loss. It's coming up on...gosh, six(!) years since Dad died. I miss him terribly.
Best wishes to you.
I am so sorry to hear about your dad, Candlelight. I lost my mom 10 years ago and I can tell you the pain gets less but it never goes away.
The best advice I can give you is if you need to cry, please cry. Let it all out. It's no good keeping it inside. Feel what you need to feel.
And watch for a sign from your dad. He will let you know that he has made it to Heaven and he is alright.
Prayers for and condolences to you and your family, Candlelight.
Seconded. When we buried my grandfather who was a train nut, just as the casket was being lowered into the ground, a train came by on adjacent track and blew it's whistle.
You have my condolences, Candlelight. My Dad passed away just over a year ago after a bout of pneumonia. If you want to talk, just send me a PM.
My deepest and sincerest condolences, Candlelight.
Thank you everyone. It's been easier today.
Condolences and prayers to you and your family.
My sincere condolences, Candlelight. Glad you are doing better today.
So sorry for your loss, Candlelight. My own Dad died February 18 of last year. Dad, who was a retired NASCAR race driver, died on the first day of race season last year. I think my most difficult time will be watching that first race and thinking of Dad. Race day was always our special time to visit. He always had some insight about racing that suddenly made the race come alive to me.
You will find your own special trigger, too. It will come when you least expect it... a small thing. A car will pass like the one your dad owned, etc. Instead of being sad, use those triggers to recall pleasant memories and special times spent together.
My prayers and best wishes to all who have lost loved ones.
Agreed. For me, it seems to be the start of baseball season. Dad was a huge baseball fan and we spent a lot of time watching the games together. Last year (Dad passed in Dec 2011), I wound up watching very few games because of this. i am hoping that I will be able to watch at least half the games this year (both Diamondbacks fans).
Sorry for your loss.
It's been a year and 3 days since my dad died on January 23rd 2012.
It gets better. But not right away. He is the reason that I love things like Star Trek, Star Wars and Doctor Who. I've had my avatar for a year now, and I told myself that I would take it down after a year...it's still up....But somehow it does get better.
