Omgoodness Jennifer yes!!! The father's day marketing seem to be non still hurts....I was looking to get a card for my husband but couldn't deal with being in the card section. Last year I totally fell apart, as well as leading up to it. This will be the 2nd year so I'm hoping it won't be as bad. I understand that life goes on for other folks as well, but it doesn't stop the pain of missing my own father. )-:

Jennifer,yes I know what you mean with all the hype.for me it was Mother's Day the first time without her. Painful to be in the card section picking for my daughter but not my mom. Not as bad this year. I know the world continues as before but sometimes it sure doesn't feel that way!

Does anyone else hate all the marketing hype about Father's Day? The day itself is difficult without weeks of ads mentioning the importance of a special day with Dad. And with each mention, I have a few more moments reflecting on my loss. (I lost my Dad unexpectedly about 2 years ago.) From my perspective it feels so insensitive. I try not to take it personally. I was wondering if anyone else was feeling the same this week leading up to Father's Day?

Denise, My deepest sympathy. I remember vividly being in the same space you are in now. I didn't know where to turn. Know that the feelings you have are perfectly normal. It will never be 'easy' but trust that it all will become a little more manageable with time.

My mom passed away almost 2yrs ago.When I'm missing her I sit down with old photos or her jewelry or samples of her handwriting to make her seem close.It always brings a smile to my face.My dad seems to like to remember through photos too.He's almost 87.Married 60 yrs.I get so sad watching him fade to Alzheimer's.We are very close.

That's what a medium told me, "feel your feelings". I couldn't go there. I felt I would loose my mind and never come back. Mine was my daughter, only child. I lost my Mpm less than 2 months b/4 my daughter Candace.

So, so sorry denise. There really aren't any words I can say to make u feel better. FEEL the LOVE from your family and friends. I believe you will be with her again. We were spirits before we became human. We all go back to spirits. You will see her again! So sorry for your loss.

Denise-I'm so sorry for your loss.  I'm not sure you can "handle" losing your Mom.  Allow yourself to feel all the feelings.  Do something good and nice for yourself every day.  Begin to parent yourself in a kind and healthy way.  It helps me to know that I will see my Mom again someday and be able to hug her.  Your Mom will come visit you in your dreams someday and I'd like to know about it when she does.

I am still grieving the loss of my mother, who passed away on April 15, 2012, my father, who passed away on June 28, 2010 and my cat; who passed away on Aug. 1, 2011. I have been attending Church for the past year and it is helping and I know that they are all watching over my brother and me. It is still very painful, though.
