TCGOODWIN:The former things have passed away. 

Comment by TCGOODWIN on June 14, 2014 at 4:22pm

I lost both sets of my grandparents at an early age.  It is strange how even as a young child you can remember the little things that they use to do to make you feel good. I remember my maternal grandpa use to ride us in the back of his truck. My paternal grandpa use to take me to the store and buy candy. ( My parents did not let me have)Oh , I miss them dearly. Sigh....  ( Revelation 21:3,4)

Amanda,thanks for responding. My dad passed 2-8-14. I lost my mom august 2011.i feel unanchored. I jokingly refer to myself as the matriarch of the dad was a gentle sensitive soul,an artist all his life of 87 years.he died in his sleep with no warning.the shock has made it much harder. I have a DVD of him being interviewed about his art but can't bring myself to watch it yet. I'm sorry you are grieving too. Dads and daughters have a special bond unlike any other.

Sandra, I am feeling the same way after my father 11/29/2013. Not to be able to even call or meet up is beyond intimidating. Because of this I have had a really tough week. I finally figured out what happened but it doesn't bring him back to me. Its really hard.

I'm so dreading this Sunday,the first Father's Day without mine. It's been 4 months since he passed away and most days are ok but we were so close and I always tried to make this day special for him. I'm not sure if I'll go to the cemetery or just surround myself with his paintings,writings,and photos. I just feel like a big hole has opened up again.

Autumn- I am sorry about the loss of your mother. You seem like a great person and are so lucky to have your husband, family and all the support. All I have is my fiancé and two kids. I dont really have a family to turn to so it's been tough for me.i would love to exchange emails and get advice from you.

Autumn- thank you so much for reaching out to me. This has been a very hard time for me and i try everyday to be strong for my kids but I can't help but break down sometimes.

Wow Jessica I am truly so sorry for your loss. Dealing with one parent is hard enough I couldn't imagine losing both on top of the other losses you mentioned. You are very young however it made me smile to know that you have started your own family with your kids and fiancé. I am married and loss my mom a few weeks ago but I'm not sure what I would do without my husband in this process. My faith is really what's gotten me through. I pray and my friends and other family members are a huge support. Please let me know if you'd like to exchange emails and connect offline. I'm praying for you and take this day by day. I also have gotten grief counseling which has wen very helpful.

Hi my name is Jess and I'm new to this. I just recently lost my dad in March this year. And I lost my mother when I was 14, my nana when I was 21. Both parents taken from me from cancer. I will be 30 years old this December and I feel lost and like a huge part of me is missing. No one around me seems to understand unless they have gone through it. I've never really coped with death rather just numbed it out. I feel so alone all the time. I have two kids and a great fiancé, and they are great but I still feel empty inside and like in missing out on so much more.
- Jess c.
