I'm not looking for a guide to help a child, but rather to try to better understand my own family relationships; my dad passed away when I was a year old.

Tracy, I agree with you about anniversary years. March 6th will be the 40th anniversary of his death. :
I had *hints* of the woman I was to become early on though...that is the amazing thing. So, I did eventually make it through it.
One thing too...when my father passed on (we were VERY close) I grieved deeply and sorrowfully for several months. But, then I was able to pass through the stages of grief very quickly in comparison to my remaining siblings. I transitioned into a spiritual relationship with my Dad quicker than the others in my family...and I think part of it was that I had such a deep spiritual relationship with my sister who passed already.
My father passed on at 25. My SIL (my brother's wife) and MIL lost their fathers during their teenage years. As a result they seem to have really have a lot of security issues. SIL surrounds herself with a lot of material posessions and seems to overly care that she is in the right "circle of friends" and communicates with the "right people"...a keeping up with the jones' sort of thing. MIL is also very into keeping things a "certain way"...very in control of her environment and freaks out if anything she doesn't expect happens.
Just some things I've noticed.
Perpetually breastfeeding or pregnant ENFP mom to a lot of kids...wife to a midwestern nice guy...living in tropical paradise...pink cats and homebirths rock!
I'm an unintentional weasel feeder and I suck at proofreading.
my close cousin lost her dad when she was two. doesnt remember him at all. yes there is a hollow in her heart that she never knew him and longs to have known him personally. but for her it is not a suffering. not a negative thing. because everyone in the family paid special attention to them including them and so she was never made to feel a loss of a male role model in her life.
