    My dad recently got paralyzed

    and since then I have been thinking to meet him but due to my own ill health, traveling is prohibited to me.. He is unable to speak and its extremely painful... I imagine how things were in school, how the life was as I grew up, his role in my life, his hard work to fulfil the...

    I lost my dad when I was young ,

    I'm the youngest so missed out on even remembering how he looks, I enjoy a lot of things that boys enjoy to do. I'm not a tom boy or anything I just enjoy doing things that girls supposedly can't. I love the girly things too. I think of my previous relationships and how I have...

    I see him in his bed in the hospital,

    and I see him in his coffin, and then I see him as big as life standing there at home, and I just can’t work out why he’s still not there

    My father died October of this year.

    I was always terrified of him dying. Now the unthinkable has happened. I truly know what it means to be heartbroken because I am. My father and I were different but really enjoyed each others company. I feel so lost and adrift. Would love to hear from others with similar...

    When I was 4 years old,

    my dad died in a plane crash. It has been 15 years since he died. I don't even remember his face. I don't remember anything about him. I don't know if I miss him, or I just miss a father figure in my life. I feel said when I realize that I will never get to experience what it's...

    Friend, Philosopher, Guide,

    Boss & Dad: That is the ascending order in which I preferred him in my life, Dad being the most preferred obviously and he fulfilled every part with aplomb in my 43 years. He would put up with my rants, accept me for who I am, did not hold any grudge over the innumerable...

    Dear Papa, Today is the exact day your heart

    decided to stop beating. They say I was too young back then to remember everything about you. But you know what? I still remember all those bicycle rides in the morning, those food you used to cook, and all those late nights I waited for you to come home. We'll always miss you...

    It's been nearly 9 months since my wonderful Dad passed away. The shock and numbness are wearing off but the pain is still very raw. I knew it would be hard but I didn't anticipate how strong the feelings of loss and emptiness would be. What I wouldn't give to see him again! I...

    when I was 18 needless to say I'm pretty selfish and insensitive towards Father's Day and could careless about it.

    16 years ago today, I received the phone call.

    I had talked to my father a good 45 minutes. Wishing him a happy father's day. 10 minutes after, the phone rang. My father had another stroke. I talked to his sister, says he was leaving in an ambulance... talked to Mr B, asked him what happened. He told me that the ambulance...

    I do. Every day. He died suddenly in 1996-

    aged 67 having just retired and appearing to be in rude health. Which got me thinking on fairness... He was born in 1928. As were Che Guevara, Martin Luther King, and Bruce Forsyth. Only one of those is still alive- if there's a God then He must REALLY like Strictly Come...

    Some days more then others, it's been a few months now and I think about him every day, usually just as a subconscious thought. Every now and then something makes me think a little harder about him and it brings a tear to my eye, the world is a better place for him having been in...

    Not a day goes by that I don’t miss you.

    Funny how things can change so quickly. I can’t even remember your voice now. I would give everything I had to spend just five more minutes with you. You taught me about unconditional love. How I was able to love someone more than myself. I tell myself it’s getting easier...

    The divorce makes all holidays harder.

    .. and especially when I can't spend Father's Day with my father because he lives eight hours away. He's been in a depressed kind of mood lately and I'm afraid Father's Day is just making it harder on him. I wish I could do something to help.

    My dad took his last breath on March 12th,

    2014. He was only 53. He fought his cancer hard. Until the very end. He didn't want to let go of my mom, my brother, or me. Before he passed, he told me to stay strong. I usually don't have a problem with being strong but this was destroying me & he could definitely tell. I...

    It's been over twenty-four years

    since dad passed away, of abdominal cancer, and I still miss him keenly, so keenly. He was an amazing man - born in 1922, left school at fourteen, ran to join the army at the outbreak of WW2, and became a boxer there, beating many of the conscripted professionals with consumate...

    When I was young, I was a daddy's girl.

    It was a hot summer day. My dad and mom loaded us kids up in the car to go swimming. When we arrived, all of the kids there were jumping into the water. My sister and I thought we were supposed to do the same. We jumped in and started drowning. My dad dived in fully clothed...

    I was nine when my parents split.

    After that his visits were sporadic, late, or not at all. I had already learned though, that I would be disappointed if I waited for his attention. I knew I had to go after it.Once, early one evening when I was 6, I saw him putting on his shoes and I asked where he was going. He...
