(((HUGS))) I’m so sorry for your loss.  What a gift you did have for the friendship you managed to form with him.  So many people just never get there.  It does take time, and I’m sure you do know how great it is that you have your 4 year old around now.  Children really make times like these better.

I would try to spend some time with your brother.  Take him to grab lunch, it doesn’t have to be spending the day with him, just a conversation.  I don’t know if you keep a journal or not, but you might want to start.  It amazes me how many things I’ve forgotten about my mom, I wished I had written things down while they were fresh in my mind, stories I heard at her funeral about her from people I don’t see enough.  You won’t ever get over it, but you can live with it. My mom has been gone for 15 years and I still cry and I probably always will.  Just hang in there and if you feel like crying … just let it out.  Take care of yourself, drink lots of water too!

I’m so sorry.  Just know that whatever you feel now or in the future is totally normal.  You may feel fine one second, and then in a puddle of tears the next (even years after the fact).  I too wasn’t overly close with my dad (also a child of divorce), but I know he loved me deeply, even if he couldn’t really show it the way I needed him to.  That won’t make it easier for you, it just makes it more complicated that it may seem on the surface.  If you have the insurance coverage, it may help to see a therapist.  When I did, and talked about some of the unresolved issues I had with my dad, my therapist asked me “if you have the chance to talk to him again, what would you say?”, and I was stumped.  Maybe writing out all your thoughts will help you.

Sending love and hugs your way. My father passed away two months ago so I know what you are going through. There is no right way to handle death, everyone processes it differently. Losing a parent is SO hard and many people don’t know how to express their condolences- I got a lot of strange responses but the ones that resonated came from those that went through it themselves.  Regardless of communication issues, just know that he will forever be with you, even if not in the physical form.
