Wow,  I did not at all think that anyone would care to read, let alone respond to,  my post.  I don't have anyone (other than the Lord) I can talk to to help me get through this experience. I truly cannot tell you how much your responses mean to me.  I know that God will never leave my side, but knowing that there are people who I've never met that cared enough to respond to my brokenness gives me additional hope.   The range and intensity of emotions I continue to feel since my father's…

Hi Sara I saw your response to me on latest conversations a little while ago today on the 2nd day of December. I want to thank you for it because it lifts me up when someone responds to me on Legacy. No matter how much family or friends we have it doesn't change how we feel about our loss of a parent. It can help us feel that we are not alone.  We still have a bond of love with our parents. Once in awhile in a conversation I'll mention about my only child Joe and his loss from 8 years and 8 months ago. I did that yesterday and the cashier at a big department store shared that she lost her daughter at 3 years old about 7 years ago. We need to connect with people and that is why I suggest a bereavement group. I do miss my immediate family on the holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have a couple of friends that I call my sister-friends they were both there for me when 6 years ago when I lost my mother and also for my son. We don't see each other often maybe a telephone call from time to time. They have issues they speak about with me that affects their life. It's good that someone wants to tell me about what's going on in their life too. My father was the first loss then my only sibling and it was difficult for me too. But the loss of my mother and son have been the toughest. My mother had lots of illnesses but she was 96 1/2 when she passed. I never could wrap my head around it that she would ever leave. I never thought what happened to my son would happen. He came from me and he had an entire life ahead of him. Joe was 42 years and 8 months old when he was on his motorcycle late at night after Easter dinner. A drunk driver took his life and during the hearing it was dismissed; he walks free. My husband thinks the guy was an informant of some kind to the police officials. I can tell you some of the things I did another time to help myself. Life changes and whatever it is you were doing before keep doing. I'm wondering what age group you are in and what kind of work do you have. Tell me a bit about yourself. Have a Blessed Day! With Love, Barbara

Hello Sara,

The one best gift our Heavenly Father had given us is our ability to store memories.  I hold onto them as gems.  I replay the many beautiful memories of my loss parents.  I miss them so, I often remember words of wisdom and long to hear their voices again. Sara, I turn to the God of all comfort to give me the strength to carry on and to hold onto his promise given at Revelation 21:3,4.  Know that soon our love ones will be recalled and reunited with all those in our Heavenly Father's memories. John 5:28,29.

Hi Sara,

Welcome to Legacy and Loss of a Parent.

Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your dear father. A parent is a most if not the most important significant person in our lives. It's very normal for you to be having a difficult time dealing with the loss of your dear father. It's healthy to cry and think of your dad all the time moreso now than even before. I don't know your age or if you drive. If you do drive it may help you to look for a bereavement group to be able to express your feelings and be with other people that understand. People like being with people that share the same issue. Look above where you typed your message and then click on Articles, Blogs, Resources or any of the ones that can give you some comfort. Also the community that you are a part of for the loss of parents. By reading other peoples posts and responding you may be able to get someone to speak with. I recall it being more active than it has been recently. I was an active member of loss of a child for year. I lost my only son Joe in 2010 and my mother 2 years later. My father in the 1991 and brother Richie in 1995. Life changes however we need to adapt. After you read my post you may want to respond and talk about your father. Or anything that is on your mind. With Love, Barbara
