I had just got done talking to him 2 weeks prior and couldn't believe it. There isn't one night I go to sleep without thinking of him. We went to the hospital to see him. Though I lost my darling father two years ago 10th February 2014 but the feeling l got after reading your story got me devastated. It's scary because I was the one who found him. The pain is so intense. He also loved telling me how Michael Jordan scored 63 points against the Celtics in 1986, yet Boston ended up winning the game.
I couldn't hold him tight enough. I remember you crying in your studio one day, and my asking Gaye what was wrong. He was my rock, my everything. I go to bed every night wishing I could hear his voice, feel him strong arms around me--hugging me, seeing his smile. I regret not calling my dad back one last time. I struggle to figure out how I am going to live my life without my father.
I broke your heart when I got married very young. He passed away on my second son's birthday. At times I feel all alone, my dad was my everything, one person I knew I could depend on. The last time I saw him was in February. I will see you again. For the first time in my life I really want to believe that death is not the end, that one day I will meet my dad again. She woke me up at about 7 in the morning and told me in a rush he had coded.
Now I'm only 14 years old I've been through so much, when my father died people came over to see me, but after 1 month nobody bothered calling anymore my own family. He remained in the intensive care for 19 days, and every day was a torture to see him suffering and dying a slow death. I still remember when they called me to come home, I knew someone has passed on. I am 20, I cry as I type knowing he will never see me get married or be at my college graduation. Spreading almost too quickly for me to say goodbye. Dancing with you was, indeed, the best moment of my life.
This letter is to truly celebrate what is possible between fathers and daughters — no matter what age she is. My love and thoughts go out to every one who has shared their similar stories of losing their precious father. Every day is a constant battle with grief. I still pass his house and almost walk up to it, but then I remember. He had a pulmonary embolism the infections couldn't control then, he finally gave up.
I miss you dad, love you forever and would love to be your son again in the next life. I wish I had more memories with but the ones I have now I won't ever forget because and now he's gone. I always try to hide my feelings. He loved us so much. The hardest part about everything is I was talking to him the weekend before. Everyone that came was profoundly touched by the transcendent experience of your passing. When I read the first few lines of this poem it sounded as though I could have written them - I'll never forget the day Someone rang to tell me That you'd gone away The hurt is the same Like an open wound thank you for sharing.
It was in the backyard with dirt, but we eventually moved it to our new driveway. Many people are seconding Copland's sentiment: her post went viral overnight, and it currently has over 400,000 shares on Facebook and almost 50,000 comments. Shocked with what I've heard, I flew home that very day wondering what must have really happened to dad. He only has two daughters. I ask myself every day why did it have to be my dad and why so quick you left us, daddy you promised you were always going to be with us, I love and miss you so much dad. And then at end of the month, we'd walk to the ShopRite to buy groceries.
How I wish he knew how I really feel about him but when I try to speak to him it only feels like he's pushing me away. I am the youngest and daddy's little girl and he is my bestfriend. I'm 13 about to be 14 February 17th and he's not gonna be there physically, but mentally I miss him soooooo much, I'm the oldest of 3 I was his baby girl. But sadly he lost the fight but now he is at peace, I miss him so much : ,the tears are flowing as I write this. All that hate just went away you cannot stay mad at someone your whole life you have to face the fact.
