I lost my dad to a hit and run I am also 25 and I agree that wie r to young to lose our fathers. I'm sending thoughts of strength and hoping you don't lose urself in grief as I did. It took me a while to come to the realization that all I can do from here is make my dad proud with a life well lived. Easier said than done, I know. babysteps, how long it takes doesn't matter. the effort and determination we put forth Is what makes us our fathers daughters, this is what makes them proud and what keeps them close to our hearts. the pain may stay with us forever but it's the love of our fathers that can keep it from destroying us.
