Dad is gone

  1. It’s always such a hard juxtaposition — vast relief that they are no longer suffering and gut wrenching grief that they are gone and just numbness that you don’t really know what to do next.

  2. I don’t know you but my heart is with you. Sending you love and strength. It’s not an easy ending but it sounds like love was all around.

  3. I’m so sorry. 2 years removed from my mom passing, the one thing I have to hold with happiness (not really the right word but closest I could find) about it is that she was held by people who loved her so much as she moved on to her next journey. It was a death so befitting for such an amazing person who lived a life so filled with love. I hope you find the same happiness knowing that you gave your dad the same.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. My dad passed three months ago from ALS, and I can relate to the feelings you shared. I’m glad that he got to pass at home surrounded by you and his loved ones. My dad had the same wish, and we were luckily able to grant it to him as well.

  5. I'm so sorry about your dad, but also echo the gladness that you got to be with him until the end all the same. Thank you so so much for your recent sentiment, I am definitely in that early, raw stage where I am just feeling pain and emptiness when I think of him, but it is good to know it may be possible to alchemise this into some beauty. And I am sure both of our dads would want us to be able to carry their love with us and live well and not get bogged down by the tragedy of it all, at least, for too long.

  6. I’m sorry for your loss, Im terrified to lose my dad, but I know it will happen soon. Thoughts are with you 💭

  7. Thank you, and of course you are terrified, i was too. Just try and stay present and make the most of every moment left with him (but also take care of yourself). What helps me now is knowing I made the most of time with him while I had it and said what I needed to say <3

  8. So sorry for your loss, my mom passed 6 months after being diagnosed. I know it’s not an easy thing to ever accept.

  9. I am so so sorry for your loss. My Dad is 7 weeks into diagnosis and rapidly declining. I’m also half way across the world with a new baby. The anticipatory grief is debilitating. Take care OP. Sending you much love.
