Father’s Day in the US is approaching, and this always reminds me of how much I miss my own father. He passed away four years ago, and since I was unable to attend his funeral, something inside me tells me he still alive at least I want him to be. I want my children to have their father by their side all the time. I know DH will make a great father. Is anyone else here missing their father?
Happy father’s day to all fathers or father-to-be!! Also for the mothers that do double the work as fathers like my mom did.

Yep, my dad passed away 7 years ago. This year I’m pregnant with my first kid and I wish he was here to celebrate being a grandpa.

Yep. However I’m hoping to see the good in him living on in my son who is due 9 days from now. My dad would have turned 60 this year, I’m turning 30 and my son will be born. So i will always have that to fall back on for the connection. And my son’s middle name will be my maiden name. 🙂

Yes, my dad died in 2001. He never got to see me finish undergrad, graduate school, meet my FH, meet his “granddogs,” and he will not see me get married. I also have no siblings and my mom moved 250 miles away for work a few years ago. Sometimes I feel very resentful and like I got robbed.

Yes. My dad passed away a year and a half ago. Tomorrow we get to celebrate my husbands first Father’s Day with our perfect little 13 day old little girl. I know how much my dad would’ve loved her and it makes me so sad she never gets to meet him.

Desperately. My father passed away 9 years ago. He never met DH, didn’t see us get married and won’t see my first child due in December. It’s the big events that hit me harder now. I am going to celebrate DH as a father tomorrow and creating our own memories and traditions helps a lot.

It’s been 11 years since my dad died. The only reason I knew it was Father’s Day was when my grade partner gave me activities for the kids to complete before Friday. Then on Thursday my mom asked if I was going to the cemetery.
I just want the day to come & go.

I’m with you! I really miss my Dad, God rest his soul. I wish he could be there to walk me down the aisle. He is always with me in spirit. I’m sure he will be watching me and hopefully he will be pleased…

I miss my father every day and he’s been gone for 22 years. I was 32, he was only 67 and his first grandchild-my son-was only 6 months old. He was a most amazing father and the man I wanted my children to know more than anyone. He was from Holland, survived Nazi occupation in WWII, was an officer for the Dutch Merchant Marine and met my mom when he sailed to NYC on one of his trips. He overcame big physical problems as a young man and taught me to never quit. He believed women can be anything they want in a time when not too many men thought that way.

My daddy died two and a half years ago and his girlfriend of 20 years passed away a couple of weeks ago. I’m really sad this father’s day because I can’t even talk to his girlfriend about him. I can’t help but feel completely alone…this post is sad but in a weird way it made me feel a little better…if that makes any sense.
