    A Little Girl's Love, For A Father She Barely Knew

    My father was killed when I was five. I guess I need to start this story at the beginning. I was a child of an one night stand. Yes, she knew him from childhood but no it wasn’t any type of an relationship between them. In fact until recently, I didn’t even know my dad was...

    On December 5, 2011 at 7:20 in the morning I was awakened by my brother as I slept in the window seal in my dads hospital room. As I opened my eyes I realized I wasn't dreaming, and the nightmare that had started about two years, before was actually my reality. My first love, my...

    Don't Be Afraid

    They sometimes say that we never really grow up fully until our parents leave us. But actually your father hasn't left you, and neither has mine. They are inside us and they made us what we are. I remember when my father died I used to have a lot of dreams. In my dreams...

    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...

    My dad he was a wise man.

    He knew about many things, more than I'll ever know. He was kind and gentle. And through his eyes I could see a man who loved with all his heart. Driver by day a father and husband by night. He took pride in all he did. He knew the roads like the back of his hand. He knew how...

    My father died October of this year.

    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 just called him to say hello we could only

    talk for like 1min but it was for a good reason (driving) but what I hate is when he says he will call back but doesn't! I know.... I know what you are going to say "well he could have been busy with more important thing" it is just this happens a lot and I'm sick of it!

    I miss my parents being together.

    I remember when I was a little girl, my dad would take all my siblings and I to the park and we used to play in the snow together. I had such a nice childhood growing up with my dad. He tried his hardest to keep us happy, innocent children. But all of that is non-existent now.
