  • Oh Dulcie, I am so sorry for your loss. While I have not (thankfully) lost a parent, I have lost a body part and I am familiar with deep grief. For me, this period you describe was like being in the center of a tornado. My place in it, for the moment, was still – not peaceful, just still and empty, like in a vacuum. Eventually, the swirl around me slowed and I could eventually grab the pieces that were mine to pick up.

    This is beautifully written. Sending you love and hugs as you find your ground.

    It’s bern six months since I lost my dad. He also had copd. In the end, it was too much for his heart. I felt the same way. Listless, lost my words, completely. I just don’t know how to function in a world where my dad isn’t in it. It’s like the anchor is up and I’m not grounded anymore. I forced my self to try new things, kept busy. It helped, but grief would was over me unexpectedly, reminding me that things have changed. April came and so did his birthday. My sister placed flowers on the grave and sent me a picture. I needed to do something, do I planted a memory garden. A place near me for him. It’s helped so much. Watching it grow and thrive like a miracle because I’m not a gardener. I sit on the steps, look at the flowers, and talk to dad. This month when the date came around–the six month mark–I didn’t notice. I think dad smiled. Hang in there, my friend. I’m here if you want to talk.

    I miss him, although, I didn’t know him well as my uncle. No, not well enough, but he always treated me special at those golf tournaments and cookouts. He was always concerned about how I was doing, he cared. Thank you, for sharing.
