Today is 17 months since I lost my loving father and I am having a very hard time living without him. I have been to some grief meetings since he passed but they can be depressing sometimes listening to others in the group. This is a great site because I know that I am not alone even though sometimes I feel so all alone in the world. It would be so wonderful to have a friend to communicate with on a regular basis. I guess I just need a good listener that has been through a similar experience, and I don't mean a therapist. So much to say but I am more of a talker than writer. Does anyone else feel the same way?
