It has been two days when my daddy suddenly died from a massive heart attack. There has never been any heart problems in our family. He went in for leg and lower back pain and now he is DEAD??? My heart is hurting so much I don't know what to do, it was just me and my dad as my mom passed in 2005, I have no brothers and sisters and he was my BEST FRIEND my whole life.
I can hardly breathe and this pain just seems unbearable, why god, why???

Thanks for your kind, supportive words. I was amazed at the number of people who are going through the exact same thoughts and feelings as me. This seems to be a great site for being able to open up about your grief, without being judged by anyone, which already helps me to know I am perfectly normal in feeling the way I do about losing my Dad. We had such a special relationship with me being the oldest of 4 and the only girl. I knew that Dad loved us each equally but there was always that little special bond with me being "Daddys little girl" that never ended. I mostly miss looking forward to his hugs that could make me feel like all my problems were solved, and our talks that no one knew about but the two of us. I have started going back to church, and that does bring me some comfort. I am also so very sorry for your loss of your Dad. Is your Mom still living? I am at least blessed with a mother who is also my best friend, and we talk every day, sometimes 2 or three times a day (thank goodness for unlimited long distance) She is my rock even in the worst time of her life (she loved my Dad for 53 years through things most womeon would never have put up with) But she knw how much he loved her and the last few years they had together were truly wonderful ones. I am at least thankful for that. Write me whenever you feel the need to talk or have a shoulder to cry on. Thanks again for your support.
Thank you for your kind thoughts. I am maintaining, I still cry a lot but am trying to get through this. There is constant paperwork coming regarding my dad's affairs, so that keeps bringing me to the reality that he is gone. I am so dreading Father's Day but will try to make sure I am so busy that I don't have a lot of time to think about it.
Just thinking of you and wanted to send you this thought, as you share stories and your memories of how your dad lived life and how very much he meant to you, may you find comfort. Remember: “God is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18) May you find comfort in your fahters memories that are yours to cherish.
May you find comfort in your dads memories, and strength in the companionship of the life you shared together. Facing the death of someone so close to your heart is emotionally devastating, to say the least. Even Christ Jesus "became troubled and gave way to tears" at the death of his close friend, Lazarus, although he knew that he would resurrect him just moments later.(John 11:35,38-44) Although your deep pain will not easily disappear, prayer to God will bring comfort to you as you grieve. The Bible assures us God "is healing the broken hearted ones, and is binding up their painful spot." Psalm 147:3 .......kathy
