My father died this morning around 3:30 a.m.
I Love you dad!!! Thank you.
I’m sorry to hear about your dad . . .
Life’s hard, but we have got to be harder. x
Yes, we do have to be harder! Thank you, I needed to read this today!
I am very sorry for your loss…take what comfort you can knowing he is at peace now.
Thank you so much for your kind words and support
My deepest, heartfelt sympathies.
Thank you very much!
I am so sorry for your loss. My father has cancer with months to live. Today will most likely be his last Thankgiving with us. You connected with your father and he knew you loved him. That is something you’ll always be thankful for. That is what I’m trying to be sure I’m doing with my dad from here on out. You will be in my thoughts.
Thank you so much! You have no idea how much your words mean to me!!!
I am so sorry for you and wish you all the best.
Sorry to hear that. My condolences…
Thank you so much!
I’m so sorry. You will hurt inside like you cannot imagine for so long; but eventually you will laugh so hard it will take you by surprise. I’m only telling you what I wish someone had told me when my big sister died last year. Time does heal but for now you’ll only feel pain. hugs xxx
Thank you so much! I am so sorry to hear about your sister. I hope you are doing well and thank you so much for your support!
So sorry to hear that. May he rest in peace and you find peace in your memories of him.
thank you so much
I am so sorry for you.
You will be in my prayers tonight.
Those who’ve fallen fast asleep
rest with peace we cannot know
today on pale earth below;
Yet, even Jesus true-weeped
as they removed tomb’s stark stone
and all would soon stare, amazed,
as friend emerged at cry’s tone,
“Rise, Lazarus, and be raised!”
Hugs and love to you. Try to take comfort in the knowledge that he is at peace now. No more pain nor suffering. xx oo
I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts go with you.
so sorry to hear… 😦
So sorry to hear about your Dad. It’s not easy losing a big part of your life. My Dad died 15 years ago and I still miss him. I see something he would like, or I hear something and I can’t tell him. I am glad I had him for the time I did. The acute pain goes away but you are still left with a space where he should be. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this terrible time. 🙂
So sorry to hear this. I lost my Dad 10 years ago and still feel it. Thinking of you.
Thank you so much! Your support is greatly felt.
I know it doesn’t help much, but so sorry to hear about your dad.
It actually helps a lot. Thank you so much!
Take care. Peace.
Big tip: try to put a positive spin on your blog posts. Write about the things you love in life, beauty, strength, the ways in which you’re healing after this tragic chain of events.
This will help you.
Wow, thank you so much for your words of wisdom!
I know it’s late; I’m sorry for your loss. I hope you’re able to find peace and comfort during the holidays.
I also realise this is a couple of weeks later but can I also add my commiserations. I know what it is like to loose both parents and it stirs up such a mixture of emotions.
Thanks for dropping by my blog.
I am sorry to hear you lost both parents, I extend a virtual hug my friend. Thank you for your support and kind words 🙂
I lost my father this year too, I miss him a lot but he is in a better place I hope and does not have to suffer pain now. Maire
Maire, I am so sorry for your loss, it’s a very hard experience to have to go through. I found with my fathers death that really good people seem to come out through the woodwork 🙂
I hope you are healing from your fathers passing!
I hope he is in a better place
Thank you so much, me too. I just hope that when I die, he being in my life will lead me to a better place.
I m very sorry for your loss. I truly believe that one can never ever get used to a parent not being around , caring and nurturing us. But please be comforted in knowing that he is not in pain but in peace. I lost my grandmother a couple of years back and have only been recently able to accept it. Time heals , the pain gradually dulls. Remember all of him, treasure him.
Yes, remember and treasure!
I am deeply sorry for your loss. I send you good and healing energy with love. Thank you for your kind words!!!
I am sorry to hear that, even though it is a few weeks later. I hope you have found or will find the strength to work through it.
Thank you Danielle. I am doing okay. Wednesdays seem to be the roughest. Your kind words and energy is very healing, thank you for your support!
This is the beginning of a long and sucky road. You will make it. But it will still be sucky. My condolences. I’ll probably see you somewhere along the way.
Motheroad, thank you for your support and understanding!!!!
So sorry to hear of your father’s passing!
Thank you Cassandra. Your support means a lot to me!
This is late, but I wanted to add my condolences. May you always treasure your memories of him. My mother died earlier this year (my dad died years ago), so I will also be mourning the loss of a parent this Christmas. My prayers go out to you and your family. God bless you.
Thank you! It is never too late for condolences. I am so sorry for your losses… The holidays are such a hard time to go through life without a loved one, my prayers to you too. Thank you for following me and for your support!
This is really sad. My heart goes out to you and your family
Thank you friend!
Oh my! I am so sorry and hold you in my thoughts through these holidays. There is never an easy time to lose someone. Still, I think it’s hard that life is so bright and shiny this time of year in comparison to the grief in our hearts.
Wow, your comment was so beautifully put. Thank you for your support and for reading my blog …I am finding through this blog that there are so many others who have lost a loved one recently.
Blogging has opened a new world for me. There are so many common experiences that we can share no matter where we are.
Healing can be a journey. I also lost my dad. I will be praying for you. God Bless!
Thank you. Virtual hug going out to you right now. I am sorry for your loss too!
Well, thank you. That means a lot to me and I’m sending a big virtual hug right back at ya!
You are not alone.
Thoughts are with you during this painful time – light a candle and remember the good times with your dad. He will always be with you in your heart!
Yes he will! Thank you for reading and letting me share my father with you!
Hey thanks for following my blog. I thought I’d stop and say hi.
My deepest sympathies for your loss. The first year of significant days following the passing of a loved one aren’t easy, but they happen regardless. Just remember you don’t have to “get over” grief, you just need to grow accustomed to their absence. I lost my own dad the day after Christmas. Twenty-five years later, a Christmas doesn’t go by without me missing him. My best to you on this 2nd holiday without your dad. I promise you, time does make it easier.
Thank you so much. I am sorry for your loss and I wish you a wonderful and peaceful holiday season. Thank you for letting me know I am not alone 🙂
I am so sorry. My father was the glue that held us together until his untimely death in 1972, at age 55. He died between Thanksgiving with us and Christmas. I still miss him and think about him everyday. I am so thankful I had him, even if not long enough.
My mother and I went through a year and a half of doctors, hospitals, moves from residence to every smaller quarters as her care needs grew. She finally lost her battle to pancreatic cancer on Oct 25th, 2011. Six weeks shy of her 90th birthday.
I couldn’t talk about it which threw me into the deepest, darkest, dungeon of despair. It lasted for months. It is only after I could talk about it that I was able to dig out of the gloom and into the light.
And yes, like you, blogging helped me so much.
Hugs to you this holiday season.
Wow, thank you for sharing the story about your father with me! I too am blessed I had the time I did 🙂
I am sorry for the loss of both your parents. Thank you for extending a loving hand to me and for taking the time to read my blog!
I hope you well too this holiday season. I wish you love and peace Shez!
PS, Thank you so much for the “follow.”
You are very welcome, thank you!!!!!!!!!
Oh, gosh! I’m so sorry. I had a horrible year once, lost my sister/best friend, my grandmother, my Dad and my Mother all within months of each other. My heart goes out to you!
¸.•*¨*•♪♫♫♪Merry Christmas to you ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥

I feel your pain. I lost my father April 29, 2004 and my mother on October 26, 2012. It gets easier and yet it doesn’t. There is a big hole left. My condolences.

Sorry about the lost of your Dad. I pray you are receiving comfort during your lost.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thank you fgassette, I am.
My dad passed october, 2012 also. A very weird feeling. Sorry for your loss.
Wow, it totally is. I am so sorry for your loss, my heart goes out to you. How are you dealing? I am here as I know you are for me, thank you.
Well, as for dealing, this past october we had a super diversion name Hurricane Sandy. So we were in survival mode. I hope every aniversary is not framed by hugh drama. Thanks for asking.
I am so sorry for your loss, may he rest in peace.
Thank you Meiro. I hope you have a blessed year!
I know this is late but I hope your father’s soul is peaceful in the afterlife.
It is very sweet of you to declare your love and respect for your father.
Thank you very much! I hope so too.
Thank you for appreciating what I was conveying in my blog!
My thoughts are with you as well. Somehow I managed to come upon this the day that my own mother died. (She died early this morning.) That’s just how God’s providence works, I guess. My father died last May. Both were wonderful, complex, thoughtful people who lived good, long lives, and were very ready to go when their time came to die. I was actually quite happy when my father died, and I feel the same way about my mother’s death. Maybe I’m weird! 😉 At any rate, whatever your feelings are about your father’s passing, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
You are not weird, what a beautiful way of looking at your fathers death. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers Lee! I am sorry for the passing of your beloved parents, they seem like wonderful people!
Thank you for reading my blog Jacob!
My heart goes out to you. The pain of loss never completely goes away but you do live again and laugh again and love again and even feel happy again though all of that may seem impossible now.
Not impossible right now, it seems slow getting here. Thank you for your support, you rock!
