Loss

My father died this morning. So I didn't see him "one last time" or whatever, but I feel fine about that, actually. We had our goodbye in January, and I only had wanted to go see him if I thought it might give him some comfort. So that didn't happen, but that's ok. Apparently he went peacefully. I'm glad he's not sick anymore.

I'm so sorry. Even though you are, and he was, at peace with it, it's probably still hard. Take care of yourself.

You have my sympathies.

Please take sometime for yourself to process this. Don't be too hard on yourself if you have many different emotions.

I'm sorry to hear about his death.

No matter how complicated the relationship, the death of a parent is always difficult.

take care

I'm thinking about all the blogging you've done about your father and your relationship with him, and I hope that having articulated your feelings about the situation and the process will help you heal and feel a sense of clarity about your feelings. Thinking of you.

So sorry for your loss--the one that happened years ago and now the loss of his presence here on earth. A while back, when you were blogging about the role you were willing/and wanted to play in your younger half-siblings lives once he was gone, I remember thinking that they would surely represent an easier connection to him than than he, himself, has for most of your life. Don't know if that makes sense, but I hope you guys are able to help each other through the different kinds of grief you must surely feel. Glad for you that he went peacefully.
