    Lost My Dad At 22.

    My dad recently died of cancer. I am now the only guy in the house. I find it stressful because none of my friends really tried to comfort me (Which I understand because death is something no one wants to talk about at my age). I basically lost a close friend.

    I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy, losing a parent to suicide. It's not just unexpected. It's unbelievable, and at first unacceptable. I was about to turn 17. He had just turned 39, October 30, 2012. I was told the next day at school. It was terrible. I get nervous just...

    It's Been 6 Months....

    It has been six months since I have lost my father. It's still hard and I will find myself crying at the drop of a hat. I miss him every second of every day. I still can't believe he's gone. It seems like just yesterday he was here. Yelling at me for joking around too much...

    Both of Them

    By the age of 28 I had lost both of my parents..  I feel like it's so unfair...  I was 20 when my dad passed away, 2 weeks shy of my 21st birthday... I should have been planning festivities, NOT a funeral!  I did most of the arrangements, my Mom really couldn't...

    I Can't Believe Their Gone

    Gone, But Never Forgotten <3

    Hey guys. So, this is still really hard for me to talk about. I'm 14 now, I know my profile says otherwise, but I don't know why... Lets start from the beginning... I was always a happy-go-lucky little girl from ages 1-4. I had a mom and dad who loved me, grandparents, aunts...

    Saying Goodbye To My Daddy.

    It's only been a week since I was whisked away to St. Louis to say goodbye to my dad. I feel like no one that I know personally knows how I feel to have lost him. Yeah my best friend lost her dad a couple of years ago, but she wasn't as close to her dad as I was to mine. He was...
