Nitrozac, I'm so sorry to hear about your father's death. It brings back memories of when my father died in 1997. He had a heart attack and went into the hospital for surgery to replace a heart valve. It went ok at first, but then there were complications, and he had a stroke. He then had to be moved to a nursing home where one night, in a dislusionary state, he got out of bed and tripped and broke his hip. It was downhill from there, and he finally died of pneumonia. I'll never forget the phone call from my mom on that day. I wished that I had visited him more often, but at the time I thought, "He'll make it." So now everyday as my mother gets older, I worry about the day she will be gone. My parents have done so much for me in my life that I will never be able to repay them. It's so hard to realize that someone you love will never be around again, except in your memories. [Frown]

I'm so sorry.
I don't know what it's like, soI won't try to say that I do, but I offer you my deepest sympathies.

I know you probably won't be reading the forums for a while, but when you get back you'll read how we all hope you feel better.

The closest person to me I have lost, by death anyway, has been my grandfather. Actually both grandfathers and Josh's grandpa died recently too. I was never very close to any of them so I really don't have any way of knowing how deep the pain you are feeling is, or how much you will miss him. But I do know that you will miss him, and you will probably spend a lot more time talking to your mom.

If you need anything from us, we are here for you. And while we don't pretend to understand exactly what you feel, we hope you feel better.

There's very little that can be said at a time like this that doesn't sound like a cliche. Just know you have my sympathy and my best wishes. While the shock and sorrow of your loss may be overwhelming now, don't let it blind you to all the blessings you shared with your father and take what comfort you may.

No one ever has words to say anything to make any loss any better. However, since we've all been there in one incarnation or another, I think that perhaps knowing there is some solidarity in understanding how horrible the loss of your father is for you. The suddenness of this event, and the closeness of the relationship you shared only brings more wordless emotion to represent how we regret you have to experience this.

I and everyone here are so very sorry for the sudden loss of your Dad and the experiences you must be having right now. I wish there was something I could say or do to help you during this stressful, painful time.

Thanks folks. You know, even though condolences may seem like cliches, they aren't for the grieving, and they are so much appreciated. [Happytears]
