You have all been so helpful with the few posts that I have added to the site. Hopefully someone will have something to inspire me out of this. My stepfather passed away yesterday. It was a month long battle and we knew he did not have long, but he went much much quicker than we expected. He really really wanted to walk me down the aisle, which he would have giving that he was my father in many more ways and for many more years than my biological father was. I am crushed and I just don’t know how to do anything at this point. I guess I am just hoping for some magic words or thoughts that will help me get past this….Although I know that isn’t possible.

I am so sorry for your loss. I dont have any great words of wisdom but I do know that he will be there with you on your wedding day, even if physically he is not. He’s now become a guardian angel in your life. Cherish the memories and know that he would want you to go on with your life and enjoy your big day.

Oh, honey. I’m so, so, sorry that he lost the battle so quickly. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family.
Give yourself time to grieve. I wish I had some magic for you. Try to focus on the wonderful father he was to you and be grateful for all the years you had him in your life. He knew you felt that special father/daughter bond with him, as he knew you choose him to give you away. What a special honor that must have been! And, with time, you will find ways to continue to honor his life and the relationship you had with him in your wedding.
I was once told that grief during a loss means that you loved deeply. I think there is a lot of truth in that.
Hugs to you as you journey through this sad time.

Truth is you don’t have to do anything at this point. Take it one day at a time, surround yoruself with your family and loved ones and be on auto-pilot for a bit.
It’s so hard when things don’t happen like we plan them to. My heart goes out to you and your family. you’ll be in my prayers.

So sorry for your loss. I’m sure this is a very difficult time for you and your family. I’m not sure I can inspire you, but maybe you could focus on finding a way to honor him at your wedding? There are a lot of different ways people do this at weddings and I don’t have any experience with it, but just a thought. Peace be with you and your family.

I’m so sorry about your stepdad. I know it hurts so much right now, but the others are right and it will get better in time. You will learn to carry on and treasure the time that you did have with him. Be strong. Help your mom. I promise it gets better.
