Gone Away

my father died almost a year ago now. it was june 26,2006, three days before my 16th b-day. i was at sonoma state for the day. when my mom and i got home my dad wouldnt wake up. my mom tried to revive him while i called 911. i was so scared! the ambulance came and took him to the hospital. they couldnt save him. He died from a blood clot in the leg. He had broken his legs about a week before that.

i just want him back.

the night before that we had been fighting even though everything was fine in the morning. i dont know if i said "i love you" before leaving or gave him a hug like i usually do.

its a blur.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure that your father knew that you loved him and he would not want you to be upset at the fact you were fighting the day before. That is just what teenagers and their parents do! I send my deepest sympathies to you and your family. Make your father proud of you from above and know that within you is always a part of him.

Ah, honey Sorry you feel bad. I lost myDad almost a year ago too, but I'm a lot older than you. My Dad lived about 150miles away, and he had been in the hospital for 2 days before the told me. By the time I got to him he had died and i didnt get chance to say goodbye. You wont always feel this bad, I'm sure he's looking out for you, talk to him, he'll listen. Take care x
