For the first time ever in my life, I haven't been able to call my dad, receive a call from my dad, overall not hear his voice, receive advice, receive one of his sloppy cheek kisses, and last but not least hear daddy say "hey turkey" his trademark word to call those he loved. It's been 8-LONG, DEPRESSING, STILL SHOCKING, OVERWHELMING AND HEART-BREAKING MONTHS. No words can express the pain I feel from missing my dear daddy. It still hurts, but I am becoming stronger, because I know that's what he'd want. He would not want to see me hurting in this manner. Missing you daddy forever...half of my heart lives in heaven. Continue to rest peacefully and watch over "all your girls". Love and missing you so much!!!! The half of a heart that I do have hurts and at times feels like it is going to stop beating...

Thanks so much Courtney! And yes we have connected before. Thanks for your kind words it helps. Thanks for also making me feel like I'm not the only person to miss their loved/father and that I should be over missing him by now. People are so cruel! Be thankful you have your sister. I have no one, well I do but we are estranged, which makes it somewhat harder when I don't think about the horrible things that were done while my dear daddy's body sat waiting for the coroners & while he waited to be cremated :-( it hurts like hell! On a positive/happy note....ahhhhhh how special.... "I was hey turkey!!!" & "you were "hey sweets!!!" Our father's trademarks shall be heard, treasured, missed & never forgotten forever!!! You take care Courtney. Hang in there. God bless you and your sister

I'm so sorry for your loss Shawn.  I think we have connected before, but this post touched me because it is so close to home.  Over the last few weeks, I have been totally heart broken I cant talk to my dad either (who had his own special trademark greeting of"hey sweets").  I hate to know there is someone in this boat with my sister and I, but it is comforting to know that there is someone out there who can appreciate a little thing like a trademark greeting, and relate to how heartbreaking it is to not hear it.  :(  I'm here to talk, if you ever need to....
