First off, I am very sorry for the loss of your dad. For me, I'm finding it extremely difficult to function without my dad. I lost him 02/22/2010 @6:20am, he was 66. There are now words that I can't seem to say anymore, because the words are now always associated with losing him (dea...,cemeta....,die...,caske..). I just started reading a book "How To Survive The Loss of a Parent:A Guide For Adults". I must say that between this website and the book, I KNOW I'm not losing my mind. I feel like my heart is broken also, and that it will never be whole again. I can't help but wonder that maybe our pain is so severe, because we did have our dad's longer than some. We've never known a world without daddy, and for me, (late 30's), I almost feel orphaned. I cry everyday, every few hours. I hope you find some understanding of this grief process, and again, I'm so very sorry we both lost our dads.
