Hi. I've been a a lurker around here since my father died three months ago. Some of the things that you have said to each other have really helped me in my healing process. I tried to write a few times, but always stopped myself from sending the message to post. I'm sorry for the losses that so many of you have had that are truely tragic. As a mom, I can't imagine the unspeakable pain of losing child. It seems selfish of me to intrude with a loss of a wonderful father who lived a long life and died after a tough battle with disease. His death was natural and expected, but there are days when I'm so sad. Today is one of them.
It is normal to be at peace one moment and in tears at another? I'm a middle aged women with a family of my own, and I feel silly that sometimes when I'm alone, his death has left me feeling a bit like a child. He was one of the few people in the world who truly loved me and I miss him.
Thanks for letting me share.
