One year ago today, my dad passed away

I can’t believe it’s been a year. A whole year since my dad lost his fight with cancer. The pain has definitely subsided over that time, especially knowing that he isn’t suffering anymore. No more shitty chemo. No more convulsions. No more meds. No more being an invalid. And that’s good because my dad hated being dependent on anyone.

Tonight, I’ll join my family in a service to remember my dad. And that’s good because we all need some closure.

We miss you dad.

    It is great that you had a service to remember him. It is good to honor him like that and great for the rest of your family to remember as well. The fact that you blogged about this shows some of that closure. God bless you during this tough time.

    I argued with you about the essential list of books you referenced a while back and I generally post comments very infrequently. But I did want to wish you the best in coping and offer support in dealing with something that i’m sure is still very tough. Best of luck and God Bless!

      @d: Thank you for the kind words. Sorry I didn’t reply sooner but I missed the comment, most likely because my mind was somewhere else that day. :)

    Hey Rey,

    I think that you brought a smile upon your dads face in heaven with that post.

    God bless!

    I am very sorry. Your father is so proud of you and so happy that you are having a service to remember him. My dad passed away just 2 months ago, August 28th. It was on my parents 28th wedding anniversary. My dad had a heart attack and I still can’t understand or come to peace with it. I miss him so much and I can’t get it out of my head. I really don’t know how to handle it. I have been seeing an advisor to talk to someone, it is just so hard. Do you have any advice as to how you handled it. Again I am so sorry. Your dad is looking down smiling at you right now. Best wishes
