I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It doesn't matter how old we are or how old they are. A parents passing leaves a hole in our lives that can never be filled. Try to fill your life with all those great memories of the good man he was and know that you both were blessed to have each other.

I am so sorry. It was good you could be near for much of his illness. Take care of yourself and send our love to your mother.

Hi Simple Girl,

We give you our heartfelt condolences also. Billy and I have both lost our Fathers. They are irreplaceable.

For me it's been 12 years since I lost my Father, and I still miss him terribly.

Funny, but I feel I understand what his life was like more now, than when he was alive. As I age, and (like LG4N said) we step up to the plate ourselves as adults, I see the stresses and challenges he must have faced in leading our family.

I wish I would have known it when I was younger, but that isn't the way Life works.

Let Love lead you on...

Akaisha and Billy

Losing a parent, no matter what age, takes away one of the two people who were there in our lives from the very beginning. And their passing leaves an ache in your heart that may dull over time, but never really goes away.

The best way to honor his passing is to remember and pass on all the important lessons you learned from watching the way he lived his life. By doing so, his life will live on.

My sympathies to you and your family.
