I know what you mean. All those “if only’s”. Keep rambling & sharing. We all know & understand and I think it helps to express those feelings and share them with others. Take care Charlene. You are in my thoughts. I hope you are doing OK.
Love & Hugs,

December 31st is fast approaching. My oh my, 2 years with my dad…..unbelievable. It seem as yesterday, I was making doctors appointments, going to get foods I thought he would like, visiting him….LIFE, just passed by so swiftly. “Memories” are just so wonderful to hold on to…(Just ‘rambling’ on with things thats on my mind now…..) May not make too much sense in writing as my mind is just wondering- If only my dad was still around….I would have hugged more, kissed more and just spoiled him more……..I really miss saying “Daddy” or “Hello Cutie”…and he would say..”Sure….)…. “Daddy”…. If I could have gotten one more hug……..October 7, 2009 at 5:10 am #18535marionsModerator
Dear Charlene….I think of you often especially, since we came on this board at about the same time.
Much love coming your way,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts & feelings. I want you to know how sorry I am that you are feeling so sad and that I share your sadness & pain. It must be a “sad day” as my husband passed away a year ago Sept. 2 and I too am exceptionally blue today. You are so right, sometimes it is even hard to breath. I know it has been longer for you. I don’t think it will every go away completely. I guess we just need to accept it and learn to live with it. I’m just not quite sure how we do that tho’. I know how much you miss him as I miss Jim. Know that you are not alone and that together we can all manage to go on. We just need to take it one day at a time, one small step after the other.
Take care Charlene and keep coming back here. The kindness, strength, love & support of all the good people on this site will give us the strength we need to go on.
Love & Hugs,

Haven’t wrote in a while…
I am still so so sad due to the loss of my wonderful, loving dad. I get so sad I feel like I can’t breath sometimes.
Missing him so much…..

The way in which you speak of your father tells me, that not only was he your father but your best friend as well.
Relationships like these are like stars in the sky, so special and last forever.
Hang on to this, he is with you for always.

I love the way you talk about your father. I am sure he felt and knew your love while alive and safe in the knowledge that you would always remember what a wonderful father he was.

Everyday should be “Father’s Day”. I love(d) my father so much everyday. I am missing him more than ever…but I have no regrets.

Charlene, it is with great sadness that I read your post. I am so sorry for the loss of your dear father. I am an only child myself and although I’ll be 41 soon, I always thought my Dad would live forever. He does so in my heart, but I so wish that he were still with us experiencing life. It was one year on January 13th that he passed into spirit.
I wish you peace of heart and spirit during this difficult time and hope that you will draw comfort in your kind support of your father during his journey.

Charlene, I think this was posted a while back:
We Thought of You Today
We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow, too.
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show.
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know.
Remembering you is easy,
We do it everyday.
It’s the heartache of losing you
That will never go away.
I don’t know who wrote this…loving thoughts are with you.

It has been 3 weeks and it seem like 3 years. My father would have been 61 years of age yesterday. I just re-lived Dec 30th in my mind yesterday morning. Some say it gets easier with time. Each day, I just think of what would have happened at a certain time, if he was still living. Last Jan 20th, he called me and said he did not think he would see that day. Yesterday, he did not see. All I could say throughout the day as I thought of him, “My poor dad”.
I know he is ‘resting’ with no worry, no problem. I just wished he was still here. He was so special to me. I am missing him more each day.

I know how your heart is broken right now, and I wish I could make it better for you. Your memorial is beautiful – we should all be lucky enough to have fathers like yours.
With you in sympathy,

It’s been 2 weeks and 2 days. I am missing my dad so much. Iwished he could have just kept fighting. At first, his attitude was so positive. I tried to help him remain positive. He was just tired. Tired of many things. Now his worries are all over. He is safe and at peace. No more dr’s, no more mind games, no more fighting…….
