4 weeks gone

Wow tomorrow will be 4 weeks since my Dad passed away. Still so hard for me to believe... He was the greatest man I have ever known... A great father to us kids and husband to my Mom. He is the one who instilled in me my respect for all things living....feathered, furry and scaly! Miss you Dad... I will always love you!

Thank you Tippa and Daisy... Yeah time just keeps on ticking on... Even when we think it shouldn't... How are you doing Daisy with your loss? Just so weird.. I caught my first walleye fish last week and wanted to call Dad to tell him... But then it hits you that you can't.

I have been fortunate enough not to have lost anyone so dear to me yet. The closest I have was the loss of an online game I played for 7 years that might very well have saved my life when I went through a bad phase in high school. I wear a bracelet with my character's name (It's actually "Techta") and every now and then I'll glance down and think "I can't wait to play--- oh" and start crying.

It's nothing like losing a family member I'm sure, but it's the only thing that's allowed me a glimpse into that sorrow. I'm terribly sorry for your loss. Sometimes memories can seem like a curse, but really, isn't it amazing how people can live on inside our hearts and minds?

Best of wishes to you and your family.

My deepest sympathies for you and your family. I know how what it's like to say "hey dad would love to watch this..." or "I should tell dad about..." It's been four years, last month, since my dad passed. Carry on, one day at a time. ((HUGS))

It's been a little tough. Jack was depressed after the funeral and I've spent a little bit of time away from him recently. He just needs space

I'm sorry Daisy... I hope things get better soon. I can't imagine not having my hubby around for me right now... He hugs me better!
