I know how you feel. It's funny this was posted today. I've been struggling a lot more than usual lately thinking about my dad. He passed almost
three years ago when he was 48 and when I was 18 a couple months before I graduated from high school. I miss him so much. I actually just now took a
break from listening to one of his sermons from four years ago that I had found last night. I wish I could be the man he was and I continue to strive
for it. Just seeing how many people he impacted and loved on wrenches my heart. There's not one thing I desire more to have him back. I'm blessed
that I still have him in my dreams.
I don't have advice really because I don't know how to cope myself. I can only be happy I was given such a strong foundation, and tons of wonderful
memories. It feels like my experience is nothing anyone can relate to and is the worst but it's crazy in reality there are thousands of people who
have gone thru the same thing. I don't know if I'll ever get over it. It's unfathomable to think it's going to happen again to my other family
members but really it is part of life.
I'm so sorry that your Father passed away so young. It appears he has made quite a difference in many people's lives and that is something to be
proud of. I am sure that he is proud of you for striving to be like him. People have different ways of expressing their grief. Some people don't want
to talk about it, some do. You are not alone.
Yes, death is a part of life and we will all have our turn to journey on to something else, something better.
