Oh Katie, so sorry for your loss, keep posting and talking out your feelings, everyone here is so understanding and caring , I lost my mum in August and it's helped me so much to get my feelings out and know that people understand and can offer support and kind words. Sending warm thoughts and strength to you and your family. xxxx

Yes I've my mum and brothers and I've a lady from Alzheimer's career group that we go to. I'm doing a memory walk this Saturday in my local park in memory of him as a lady phoned to see if I wanted to cancel it but my dad would have wanted it to go ahead as last year I did the walk and he stolen my medal lol

I'm pleased that you have some support from family and others. Your memory walk sounds great and I hope it gives you something to focus on which might help you a little. Your dad would be very proud of you, I'm sure. It's a wonderful thing to do, especially so soon, and you are to be congratulated for doing something so positive. Well done.

So sorry for your loss Katie, it's so heartbreaking to lose your dad. Mine died 5 months ago today and I miss him more than ever. Your friends and family will give you the strength you need but it's a tough time. People on TP are an amazing source of help and comfort though :) sending positivity and light at this saddest of times.
