Belle,

I’m so sorry about the loss of your father– it’s amazing how quickly and strongly the feelings of pain and hurt can return when faced with such an anniversary.  I hope you’re finding comfort tonight in your memories of him, and in sharing these with your son.

I lost my dad May 29, 8 years ago. It’s still like a knife in the heart sometimes. Hugs & prayers for you.

The year I get married will be 10 years for me, too… I was 20 when my dad died six days before Father’s day. It’s awful, isn’t it? Hugs for you & your family.

Hugs to you Belle. It’s been 5 and a half years since I lost my mom. I miss her every day but the worst day most recently was the first day I went wedding dress shopping. I was so excited and busy that day but the morning after it hit me and I cried the entire 45 minute drive to work. The day she died also happens to be my fiance’s birthday. So this past December, even though I still thought about her, I had a reason to celebrate and enjoy the day for the first time.

I’m so sorry. Bellenga.  I have to say, I actually have no experience in this department…  But I will say, my husband lost his mom on Mother’s Day.  And Mother’s Days pretty much sucked for him, until we had kids.  Then they were worth celebrating again.  Maybe you can make every June 9th a day to go out with your son and have fun.  Then you can honor and celebrate and remember your dad, as joyously as he’s thinking of you right now.

My father died 10 months ago and my wedding is in October.  I miss him more than words can possibly describe.  I don’t have any words of wisdom or comfort other than to let you know I’ll say a little prayer for everyone who has posted here tonight.  Hugs.

Ah it’s been 7 and 1/2 years since I lost my sweet daughter Shawnee. There will forever be this big hole in my heart until the day we are reunited. I can only imagine how different this wedding would be if she was still here. She would have been so into the wedding planning, so much more so than me. I can almost picture her helping me to pick out everything from dresses to flowers to invites. She would have loved it. We were so close and she always made such a fuss over me for holidays and my birthday. She always told me how beautiful she thought I was. Certain days I am sure to cry, like her angel(death) date, her birthday and especially Christmas. We didn’t have a lot of money while she was growing up so we always made "right merry" and celebrated with making cookies, music, going to the Nutcracker ballet. I miss her so and will until the day I die.

Bellenga, please know your Dad is with you in spirit, today and everyday. He will be there when you celebrate your wedding and when you feel that light touch on your shoulder or brush against your cheek, you will pause and realize he is there.

 Lots of hugs…

Bellenga, my heart and thoughts are with you. Heartfelt hugs.  I finished reading your blog with tears streaming down my face.  It is a beautiful post and I am sure that your father knows every word you wrote.  You have celebrated and honored him with your words today.  I wish you lots of love today as you spend time with you son.

My dad’s would-be 60th birthday just passed on June 3rd.  Sadly, he only made it to 50.  I miss him too, but I like to remember that I miss him so much because I was so very lucky to have had him in the first place.
