I am not sure how to do this.  I keep saying things like, Oh I will just call dad.  And then it hits me.  He passed away at home with my mom, me and my brother around him.  I am struggling with what he went through the few days before.  Taking care of him.  I don't know what to do with myself.  He is my dad.

I'm so sorry. I don't know what your beliefs are but when my dad died, I still talked to him in my head to say some more things I wanted to say. It sounds kind of crazy but I think he heard me. <3 Maybe if you need to, you can talk to your dad as well. Maybe he will hear you. Just a thought. <3

I lost my dad a little over a year ago and it is terribly hard. I go up and down in grief. Some days are harder then others. I believe that he can hear me and is in heaven now. but that is a really hard belief to maintain, sometimes. it helps, but it still hurts.
