I canít tell you Daddy, how many tears Iíve cried, since the day I was told, my precious Dad had died. It seems so impossible although I know itís true, as everything I see around, reminds me, of you. I can still hear your laughter and see your smiling face, I would have lost my sanity, if not, for Gods saving grace. I have to close this letter now, but this is not goodbye, for you will forever, be with me, in my heart and mind.



Seen this quote and it it seemed right for my feelings of my dad who died in oct from leukemia after only being sick for 2 mos

A few months after my father died (25 years ago) he came to me in a dream. I won't describe the whole thing but for two details: he was much younger than at the time of his death, looking very healthy and strong, and the dream was very vivid and realistic. And in the dream he looked right into my face and said "Don't cry any more. I am fine. I am happy." I have since had similar, very direct dreams and a few waking experiences that make me firm in my belief that there is peace for our loved ones who have gone ahead, and it will be there for us, too. Perhaps one day your dad will give you the same message, perhaps not. (My mother did not do the same, but perhaps I didn't need it.) Whether or not you have such an experience, I hope you can take comfort in this. I know this is so painful, and I wish you peace.

OMG I can't believe you just said that!! Aweek or two ago I just told my boyfriend that I dreamed of my dad. He was way younger in it and it felt like it was before he even had kids. He didn't say anything like that to me in it. But it did reassure me somewhat.

This is a recurrent theme by those who have "died" and then been brought back to life - that those who have died before exist in heaven as they were in their prime, when they were most healthy and happy. My husband has spoken to me in dreams several times, and always he appears as he was his 20s or 30s. I would think that your dream of your dad may reassure you that he is in that place of peace. Sometimes there is great meaning even without words. Sometimes words are not needed.

My dad died 20 years ago, and I still miss him. Why wouldn't I? At least it doesn't hurt the way it used to. Now it's just fond memories of the things we did and his dad presence.

He was one of the most kind, gentle, caring, loving people I've ever known. I'm glad I was his, and he was mine.

My birthday was yesterday and it killed me without him. My bf didn't make it easier. He fought w/ me we didn't go anywhere. No one called me or took me anywhere. My kids are only ones who told me happy bday, I even paid for a babysitter for nothing. My dad used to send me cards, and give me gifts. Plus we would eat take out or go somewhere. I am really struggling w/o him

Very sorry for your loss. I miss my parents so much.

You might want to look into a bereavement support group. It can be very helpful. You're with people who understand what it's like to lose someone.
