What do I do?

It's almost two weeks since my father died. I'm all over the wall with emotions. One minute I'm good. The next I'm a basket case? What do I do? Keep hoping me will come to me but he hasn't. He had a smile on his face when he died.

On Saturday 3/6/10, it will be 2 yrs. that my Dad passed. We were always together. Mom, Dad & me. Mom always calls me "Daddy's girl." I am lost without him ! I have no one to talk to...my friends are on the internet. Where do family & friends go when you need them ?

I lost my father 1/15/2010 he was my best friend. We could talk about anything. Spoke to him every day. He won his battle with cancer a couple months ago. We spent Christmas and New Year together. Told my father I would be back on the 18th January, we would have 30 days together (I'm in the military) we were excited about all the time we would get to spend together. We spoke on the phone on the night before he died. He sound fine, happy, making jokes, telling me he love me, all of this changed when my brother called me after midnight to tell me dad had to be rushed to the hospital. They were able to get bring him back, he would call me once he saw him. My heart felt like it was in my mouth. Did not know what to think, just prayed dad would be fine. Next call I got informed me dad was gone, they could not save him.... My entire world came to an end for me. My father was the most important man in my life. Although my husband is an amazing man. It is my father who always brought a smile to my face. He selfishless gave to his kids, if that meant he did not have a new pair shoes for himself....He taught me what to look for in a man. Had no idea dad would not be with me (us)... He survived cancer only to die on the kitchen floor from a heart attack.... My life has very little meaning for me now!! What do I do?
