I also thought that it was never going to stop hurting. It's a hurt like you've never felt before, but you can't explain it to anyone either. In fact up until about 3 or 4 months ago every day still felt like the day I got the call!! I would think about him or the day he died about every second of every day and get very sad. I sometimes even thought I didn't want to be here to feel this horrible pain anymore. I didn't know how to make it go away. But I have two kids and a husband who need me here more than I need to be with my dad. As your daughter needs you more than ever now. Your very lucky that your daughter was 16 when he passed. My daughter was only 5. He loved her more than anything in the world. Everyone could see that!! My son was only 1.5 when he passed so he'll never even know my dad. My dad was very young and it was very unexpected. He was very healthy until the day he died. I hear what your saying about the car. My dads house is right behind my grandmothers, it's the house I grew up in. I don't even like looking at the house when I visit my grandmother. It's hard to not see him there. As I'm sure it's hard to see your dads car without him driving it. But you can look at it as it's a gift from your dad to his princess, and everytime she gets in to go for a ride her grandfather will be taking the ride with her. It is going to hurt but I promise it will get better!! You need to take it one day at a time. That's probably the best advice I can give you. You know it's getting better when you only think about him every half hour instead of every second. Hang in there. It's nice for me to finally talk to someone else about how I was feeling. I don't talk to anyone about it. My mother and siblings aren't very supportive. My husband is great but I feel like he has no idea of the extent of how bad this whole thing made me feel. I had many really bad days!! But my days are looking brighter.
Thank You!!! It is nice to finally hear that someone else understands what my feelings are, not that I am happy that you have to know how it feels but you know what I mean..... I is very very hard to deal with. I just don't think it is ever gonna stop hurting!! I just can't imagine my life without my dad here. My daughter will be 17 in 2 weeks and that was his princess, she will be driving his car, i don't know how i am going to react to that??? I am happy for her, But Having his car at my house now is gonna hurt for a while??? Don't know what to do?????
