if only you could see the tears in the world you left behind.
if only you could heal our heart just one more time.
even when we closed our eyes, there is an image of your face,
eight years and still it seems like yesterday.

your loss
by: Janelle

I'm so sorry for the loss of your dad. I imagine you all have different ways of expressing your grief. Grief affects us all differently. I don't know if you had time to look around the site. Many people like to make memory books as a way to keep the memories alive for future generations. Someday all those children will be asking for stories, so keep telling them.

Others find that they need to work through their grief emotions in more proactive ways. They have a lot of strong emotions that they feel needs to be expressed. They may find help on the grief journaling or the stages of grief hub pages.

May you each find your own ways to be honest with your pain while continuing to look for beauty and hope in life.
