    Four years ago, today,

    angels wrapped you lovingly in their wings and gently carried you away. I miss you still, and I know that I will, every single day. I smile at times through my tears, because you taught me death is not something I should fear. You're no longer suffering, and in pain, and I know...

    I was 6 when my dad died.

    He had epilepsy and had a fit in his sleep. My mother had gone to work early and my sister and I were trying to wake him up but we couldn't. My mother called home and we told her we couldn't wake him up. She came home, she was screaming his name and we got ushered off to a...

    He died last night. I had little warning.

    Just over 24 hours. I'm missing him, along with the idea of "dad". I never had that. And now I'll never have it. I'm currently out in public when I don't want to be. I want to be home or with my mom.

    My dad passed away in April on the 7th.

    We had to take him off of life support the hardest decision I have ever had to make in my entire life. I felt like he was the only person in my family who understood me. With me being autistic I felt that he was like myself. Now that he is no longer he I feel lost, not knowing...

    Hi everyone. I am a 21 year old daughter

    who lost her father 2 weeks ago. He was only 59 year old. For 6 years, he suffered from renal failure and congestive heart failure. I keep thinking about him because he was such a great father and such a great person. He always put the family before himself, which makes me...

    My father passed away 2 months ago,

    I still miss him of course but I've gotten through it well. I'd be lying if I said it hasn't changed me, it's actually inspired me to learn more About what he loved doing. I've begun practicing Electric guitar since he used to be a roadie and he absolutely loved music such as...

    I don't like to cry in front of others.

    I don't like feeling vulnerable and unstable. I just want things to go back to how they were. My father just recently passed away and for the most part everyone thinks I am fine. They think that I am being strong, not only for me but for my mom and siblings. They never see me...

    The 14th of November,

    it will be 4 years. I wish you could have been at my college graduation, to hear my Valedictorian speech. I think you were. I think you still watch out for me, and even though I have so many happy memories of you, I still miss you, like it was yesterday. We knew that you were so...

    Father died in 2008 unexpectedly.

    Now it seems my entire family is at a stand still. Nothing is the same anymore. Luckily as sick as I have been I hope I will be seeing him again. We did everything together and even built my garage together. Everywhere I look I have good memories of him. Miss you dad, VERY MUCH...

    My dad died almost seven months ago.

    I miss him so much it hurts. I miss his hugs, his smell, and how he would always kiss me on the forehead. Noone else calls me sweetheart, and i miss hearing him say it.

    I lost my dad 7 weeks ago to liver failure.

    I always knew it would catch up to him. I tried to tell myself he would be here forever, he was only 60. I'm finding it very hard to get through. He meant everything to me. I think about all the memories etc to get me through my days. I think of him most at night, it's very hard...

    Even at 44 years of age,

    my father looms in my memory as a "bigger than life figure" to me. He always sought adventure in life and I admire him for being who he was. It wasn't always like that however. My parents divorced when I was young and dad moved to the Florida Keys and lived in his camper for...
