OT... 1st Fathers Day without Dad

Okay.. My dad passed away last Aug. and this is my first First Fathers day without him, Any suggestions for helping me get though the weekend. I have pretty much ignored all the talk this year of Fathers day, but just read something, and it made me cry. My dad was my rock growing up and I miss him something terrible.

I'm so sorry for you. Maybe you can do something in memory of him - something that he liked to do. Do you have some family/friends to help support you in this time? Take care - you are so blessed to have had a dad like that. So many people don't!!!!

Do you live near where he was buried? Go visit his grave site and have a chat. Just because he can't answer you doesn't mean he won't hear you. Bring him some flowers!

Maybe you volunteer this weekend. You'll be busy and doing a good deed, your father would be proud of you.

I'm very sorry for your loss, it would be very hard on me too. Take care.

I know what you mean. My dad died 12 years ago and although the grief is still there the pain is less. I sort of still feel like he is on an extended vacation. But he is all around me. In my sister, my child and he is strong in my memory and even though I thought I would forget I still can hear his laugh, smell his scent, hear his voice and even recognize his movements in myself and my sister. It makes me smile just thinking about him. So to you, even though its a fresh loss for you and it feels so painful and raw, I say go celebrate his life and enjoy knowing that he will always be with you.

Go get the book, The Next Place by Warren Hanson. It was originally written for kids, but is really useful for all ages. A beautiful poem spread over gorgeous drawn pictures- explaining how it is after this life. When I first got it I got 2 copies and I always reccomend it now.
