    It's been 11 years since he passed away, and let me tell you it feels like yesterday. Their hasn't been day that I haven't missed him. Every day it feels like that Nightmare day where God took him from us. Today it's father's day and I am going to visit him in the cemetery. WOWWW what a nice day it's going to be, seeing the other people with their fathers while I am sitting in the cemetery talking to him. For those who have a father be grateful cause you don't know what you have till you lose it, and I was 20 years old when he passed away, and he was 52 died from heart attack. One day he's with us the next day he's gone. I miss the dad/son stuff :(  :( 

    Patera tha'se panta stin kardia mas, s'agapo kai mou lipis, ADIO


    Translation from Greek to English: Dad you will always be in our hearts, I love you and I miss you. Goodbye

    Ya know, you don't have to go cause it's Father's Day.

    There are 364 other days in non leap year years to go sit and have a talk.

    I do that at my Grandpa's grave every now and then.

    Also, be happy, it seems like you had a good dad and always remember the good stuff. He did that with you because he wanted to. I'm sure his plan wasn't to be gone so son either

    I'm deeply sorry. That's just very sad......just...really sad. My friend's dad died two weeks ago...and while it's not the same as losing MY father...it's still very sad. My friend will also be at the cemetery just like him.............maybe I might join him....:(

    At the funeral, all friends where there to be with me and support me. Heck one of my friends skipped a soccer game to come to the funeral, they've been there for me

    Yeah. The funeral is going to be Monday.


    Edit:I forgot...it's Monday...not tomorrow. I feel so ashamed right now.....

    Edit:Yeah. I feel really ashamed right now. My friend is going to funeral place(I forgot what it's called) to ensure the funeral is happening on Monday......I'll still be right by him though.

    I miss my dad a lot too. He died in 2006 due to lung cancer. I just think of the happy moments our family had with him. My mom, sister and I still have dreams about him. The last one I had was, we were having a conversation and I noticed that he looked really fit but he told me he was worried he had a serious sickness even his latest medical exam proved he was healthy. :(

    Starting this thread to honor your dad was a nice thing to do. Many of us here can understand and feel the same loss as you...and it does help sometimes to just share the memory and sadness.


    My dad died from Lung Cancer...nasty stuff....he suffered so much, and I was there for all of it.

    Like you guys, there's not a day I don't think of him or my mom...they both died in July, and that month really sucks for me.

    Well, we're on the same boat so to speak. I lost my Dad a year ago (June 11th). So Fathers' day will always be bittersweet for us. We also went to the cemetery to visit him, put some flowers and candles just for Fathers' day.

    Since I don't live with my folks ever since I got married, I don't miss his presence on a day-to-day basis. But it was damn totally different during his birthday which fell a month short of his death anniversary.

    I can sorta relate. Mine passed at 55 from a heart attack. Talk about a shitty suprise. You & your Dad were a bit younger though, so Im sure it was harder for ya.
    Losing your dad at 20 is pretty painful, becasue you're at the age when you're ready to pay him back for always being there, like buying him a boat or something.
    The pain settles after about 2 years. It'll always be there still, but it won't tug on your heartstrings so much.

    Im sorry about your Dad WJ, 52 is too young to go. :( 


    Stay away from that movie Big Fish, it will turn on the waterworks.

    I miss my step dad every day of the week. The only possitive thing about his death is that he isn't suffering anymore

    Eventually everyone will be able to relate. Time waits for no man...or his father.

    But those we remember in our hearts will always be with us, as long as we make the effort to carry the memory.

    I completely understand how you feel. My dad died just in January from leukemia and lymphoma. This was my first father's day without him. :(
