My dad killed himself 20 years ago tomorrow

It's 11/11 tomorrow. In the UK this is an important date as its the day the country remembers the people who have died in all the wars gone by.

20 years ago tomorrow my dad decided to take his own life on this day, the day that I will never be able to forget.

There have been years when I have gone past this date with hardly a sniff; maybe a little sadness but nothing like this year.

I am 32 now. Dad died when I was 12. There are hundreds of horrible things that happened in the… Continue

Be with you again/song by Kevin

I just listened to a beautiful song by Kevin who lost his father to cancer. I'm not sure where it is since I am still new here. It said it all for my son, Aaron and for my Dad, who both, died from cancer. I think it is posted on illness where it says cancer. Grateful for the song, today! Thank you, Kevin

Making contact with the bereaved

While in my twenties, a close friend’s mom died. My friend shared the time and place of the visitation and yet I chose not to attend. I had good excuses; I was living in a large city and was unfamiliar with the part of town where the visitation was held. Also, my faith does not hold visitations and I had no idea what to expect. I chose to write a condolence note and I stayed away. The day after the visitation, before my note arrived, my friend called. During our conversation, she told me…
