Courtney,
I just read the letter to your dad and I'm in complete tears. How beautiful that was and you were so open and honest. Thank you so much for sharing that. It truly touched my heart and spirit.

My mom passed away on 4/15/14 of colon cancer and we are all struggling to move past this. I'm grateful someone recommended me to this site.

I recently posted a letter I wrote to my mom on Facebook this past weekend for Mother's Day. Although difficult to get my thoughts out (I think I cried a million times while writing it) i felt such contentment when i completed it.

Just know I am praying for you and your family. They say time heals this process however I don't think anytime will ever get me through this storm.

Courtney, 

I can't imagine the loss you must feel about moments never to be shared with your Dad. 

I am 44, I cherish the time I had with my Daddy.

He passed away in September last year.

In December, 2 1/2 months later, I had my wedding.

I prayed to God that He would help me feel no emptiness or loss about my Dad that day. I wanted to feel my Dad there, joyous and happy like he would have been.

Despite other offers to escort me, I chose to walk down the isle, as it appeared to observers, "by myself".

But to me--no, I was not alone. I felt my Dad's presence in such a real way--and his blessing on me and Michael as he "gave away"--that it will remain one of the most vivid, profound and cherished memories of my entire life. I thank God for such a gift.

I hope in some small way this may give you hope and comfort about what your future may bring--unexpected blessings at those significant life moments, when you need them the most.
