my dad just died....

Recommended Posts

Heidi...I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. It is always hard to lose someone, but it is even harder when there is no closure. I know you are a strong woman, and you will get through this. Just remember that there is a light at the end of your tunnel....Reggie and the baby.

Heidi - I'm so sorry to hear this! I'm not sure what the right thing to say is. But this is what ocurrs to me... Drug and alcohol addictions are so painful - for the family and also for the people with the problems, as I am sure you already know. At least your dad isn't going to suffer anymore and you can remember him and honor the father that you knew and loved. My thought and prayers are with you and your family. Please take care of yourself and you little baby!

Heidi, I am so sorry.

 

This brings up all kinds of emotions for me...

 

My mother was also an alcoholic and drug addict, and she died when I was 17 from Cirrhosis of the liver. I completely understand your mixed emotions. I never cried when my Mom died - I actually felt relief. When I try and explain that to people to this day many of them don't understand. I am just now beginning to grieve for her loss. I have two older half sisters through my Mom (we all have different dads) and we all went through some very hard times with her when she was alive.

 

I believe when she died she finally felt peace, and I believe this is the same for your Dad. No one wants to go on living that way, in such despair and misery. When my Dad and sister went in to see her body just after she had passed away they said all the tension had melted from her face and she looked so peaceful and young.

 

My thoughts are with you and your family. I'm so sorry for the loss of your Dad.
