Good Evening Everyone -

I am having a real tough night. Thursday, July 10th will be the one year anniversary of my dad's death. I just don't know what to do. I am non-stop crying and all I can do is think of him. I yelled at everyone at work today for no reason. I miss my daddy so much and can't believe that he is gone. I still haven't been up to the cemetary to see his grave site and everytime I talk with my step-mom she tells me that I need to get up there and see it. But I know that he is not there....it is just his body....he is up in heaven looking down on me!!! Please pray for me and pray for comfort for me and my family this week!!

God Bless You All

Oh, honey...Im so sorry. I wish I could do something for you. If I could, I would take away all the hurt inside your heart, right now. Just know that even though you miss your dad, he is still there with you, wrapping his spirit around you right now. He wouldnt want you to cry over him. NOw, perk up, smile and just be thankful for the time you had with him. Think of the happy times, and try to understand that you will heal from this. Each year will get easier and easier. He wants you to be happy. Try to be happy for your dad. Hugs to you today. WE are all here for you. Lean on us.

Hi Jen. I'm sorry that you're going through this. I know how much it hurts. My father died 11 years ago and the pain is still there...it lessens though, Jen. It never goes away...it's just not as bad and as often.

Praying for your at this painful time,
