One day you'll give a deep breath and the hole that was there no longer exists… and the healing starts after this sad milestone – once that the world completed his route over everything you used to share yearly (birthdays, anniversaries, Summers, first Watermelon slice of the year, his healing hand when you were feeling poor) the next route won't be that hurtful and the following will carry the warmth of the memory…Trust and See.Take Care,Teresa I'm sorry for such a huge loss. My heart goes out to you and I wish you peace on this sad day. xx My thoughts are with you, Tina. The first anniversary is so painful, but as the years pass it will become more of an ache than a wrenching pain. It has been 15 years since my mother passed (I was 26), and I still miss her terribly every day. Something a former coworker said in those first months has stuck with me always; At first the loss is a jagged, gaping hole in your heart. Over time the edges will become smoother, but the hole will always be there. Love and peace to you ((hugs)) I hope your memories are stronger than your pain. Thoughts with you today.x. Sending you much love. Anniversaries especially the first one is so hard. Bless you heart. My heart goes out to you! It's been two and a half months since my mom died, and almost 11 years since I lost my dad, but reading your blog is a comfort. Hopefully it helps to know that others share your experience — and appreciate your words. I'm so sorry. I know that pain never completely fades The first year is the very worst. My Dad has been gone 10 years now and the hurt and pain is gone, though the missing is always there. It will be a year and a half for my Dad this Tuesday the 24th. I remember crying myself to sleep at night when I was little, imagining the death of my parents, and waking up the next morning realizing how foolish I was to worry about something so many years in the future. You can never prepare yourself for the death of a parent…Mom, my husband, and I miss him all the time…we were a foursome that loved our outings (lunch, dinner, drives), and playing cards – we have so many lovely memories…it's just not the same without him…we miss him so much! God bless you as remember all your wonderful times together, and your heart breaks as you miss him. It's been 4 years since my dad died, and I agree, some hurts never heal. I've been away from blogging for a few days. I'm so sorry for the late comment. My dad passed when I was 20. I miss him every day.Sending you love. blessings to you both. Sorry for your loss. I lost my father when I was thirteen and agree some hurts never go away but they become bearable. What a beautiful and touching tribute to your father. I stumbled across your blog and fell in love with the pictures. I’m in the very difficult process of losing my father and came across this post. It has been a great help to me even though I don’t know you. It feels strange to continue with a blog or with m life in the midst of all of this, but seeing yours continue makes me feel like it’s ok. My sympathy and thanks are with you. http://clarksshoesuk.insanejournal.com/3753.html You must log in to post a comment.
