    My lovely cantankerous generous dad died on Monday at 4:45am. After being there for 5 days he waited until I had gone home to leave me. I feel sad, lost, bereaved. I feel happy Dad's suffering is over, guilty I didn't do more and exhausted. I loved my dad - he was my worst critic and best ally - a true friend. And I miss him

    So sorry for your loss. I lost my mom in April. But I am happy she is in a better place not suffering. I grieve daily. Sometimes worse, but getting better. Hugs to yourself!

    My condolances to you both, I lost my Dad on the 19th June its very early days and I empathise with the feeling of loss and emptiness. But life does and will go on, they tell me things will gradually improve with time and that is probably true.
    We must just take each day as it comes, little steps at a time. Take Care of yourselves and remember those lovely feelings of love and happy memories that no one will ever take away.

    I'm sorry to hear about your dad. I love your description of him as your 'worst critic and best ally'. What every dad should be :). I'm sure you'll miss him terribly as it sounds like you had a great relationship with him - my thoughts are with you.
