I am so sad for you. My stepfather, whom I adored, died from ALS when I was in the ninth grade, after being ill for two years. I have never gotten over losing him. I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you to face life without your father in it. I am so sorry. Wish there was something to somehow make it easier.
I am so sorry to hear about your father, Teresa. I know it is so hard for you, your mother and your whole family, and my heart goes out to you. It is a blessing that he was able to live independently for so long and that he died quickly. We'll be thinking of you.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. No matter how prepared we think we are, the passing of a family member or friend is a hard blow -- especially losing a parent.
My deepest sympathies. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
We understand your loss and would like to have our parents forever. Fortunately he spent a large number of those 88 years with you.
Sandy and Duane
We really share your sorrow -- my father died a few months ago, just shy of his 93rd birthday. But it still hit hard. Sending wishes for your healing.
