    That Ache Will Never Go Away But You Will Learn to Live With It

    Sorry to say but you probably will never "get over" the loss of your father. I lost my first-love and the father of my children ten years ago to cancer. The "missing him" never EVER subsides. Sometimes, I long and ache for him SO desperately!!! I wish I could...

    I do really miss my father. He was a good man with a big heart. I have many traits like him. He taught me a lot without trying and I am glad he was my father. It will soon be five years since his death. You seem to remember so many little things when the people you love go. I...

    We were not close when I was growing up.

    He was in and out. He was a very hard worker and he was always gone working. I think that because we weren't close, I remember and cherish every special moment we had. He wasn't a hugger or an emotional kinda guy. He was a rock. I was just sitting here thinking of some of...
