Thank you all for your support. This website helped me so much. My dad being a proud Marine, living 83yrs independently struggled when he was confined to a wheelchair the past 10 months and private Care Home the past 4 months. When he had to start wearing adult underwear and rely on others to do everything for him, he was ready to join my mom. I’m happy he passed peacefully, but I miss him terribly. God bless you all.

A movie quote to honor your fathers
passing:

“Eventually things get tragic enough and then they circle around to comedy.” ~ I Wish I Was Here, Gabe

There is no right or wrong way to grieve. “...a practical jokester til the end...” - when you find yourself ready to fall to pieces- especially during these early days and at your fathers Celebration of Life - try to think of your fathers best practical jokes and laugh. I bet he’d like that.

My father has been gone almost six years now and still - not a day goes by that I do not think of him. I was blessed to have a wonderful father. It sounds like you were too!

Im so sorry for your loss.

Condolences, the loss of a parent is a major one, even when knowing it was his time to go.  Amazing you can look at your blessings as you start the grieving, though we do grieving ahead of time also.  Be gentle withyourself.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My mom died 4 years ago but I continue to come on this site to help others, if I can . Besides, it takes quite a while to get to a "comfortable" state after they've passed. The people here understand that . I pray you will find comfort.

Thank you all for your condolences. I haven’t been able to grieve due to working on his obituary and celebration of life. A memory, song will trigger tears, as I miss him so much. He was a practical jokester til the end. I know I will be a mess at his memorial in a few weeks. I quit my job of 27yrs Nov 2017 to take care of my dad. Now God is already putting my next journey in place and blessed me with an awesome job which I will start a week after the memorial. When God’s hand is in it, you just have to hold on for the ride. My dad is flying with angels. God Bless you all!

God bless you. You loved your dad. You will miss him. I still miss my dad who died many years ago. He is with your mom and I know that brings you comfort.

Grief comes in waves. The very first father’s day after my dad died I cried and cried. Our dad’s are the first man we fall in love with. We look to him for approval. We are so happy when we make him proud. Father/daughter relationships are very special.

A good friend of mine lost her dad in a house fire when she was five years old. Her favorite thing to do is ask me to tell her stories about my dad. She says she wants to hear my stories since she has hardly any memories of her dad.

Keep sharing memories of your father. I’d love to hear a story about him. I bet you could tell tons of great ones. Please share one with us.

Very sorry for the loss of your dear father. I am touched that he was a proud marine as it seems many who served our country in that generation are. My dad is a proud Navy man even though he has not served actively in 50 years. Bless his heart, and bless you too. I hope the love you shared will be a comfort.
