I just lost my dad about 12 hours ago.. At least, that’s when I got the call. This was the first article I stumbled upon, after a quick “I’m 25 and my dad just died” search, and let me tell you that the similarity between stories of you and your father, and my father and I, made me think that this article was written just for me. It’s hard for me to think about the big hole in life for decades to come, when now I know how painful it is. It doesn’t feel real at this point.

I am so sorry to hear that. It’s so hard. However, I am now about 18 months out and the pain doesn’t go away, but it does get a little easier with every day. It isn’t easy, but just keep getting up and allow yourself to mourn.
