I miss my dad every day. Seems like the "firsts" are the hardest.

Hopefully the feelings of sadness, will eventually be overshadowed by the happy memories, they are for me now.

So sorry, Dawg. I don't have any soft fuzzies of my mother so I can't relate, but I wish I could. On the other hand, it was 40 years ago November that my father died and, some days, I miss him as much now as the day he died.

As others have said, the sadness lessens and is cushioned by all the good memories. Hang on to those.

So sorry for your loss. My mother has been gone 38 years, but I still think if things I want to tell her.

I do understand, Dawg. All those "firsts" seem to be the hardest, though as others have said it really doesn't get easier. It will be 2 years for Dad and 19 for Mom in March and I miss them equally.

Sending love and big hugs to you {{{{{{{{{{{{{Dawg}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Awww (((Dawg))), I'm so sorry. I lost my beloved Mom many years ago, on my husband's birthday. Now he's gone too, and on each Nov. 17th I think of the profound impact they both had on my life. After all these years, I've learned the grieving finally stops, but the missing never does.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

We love you, Dawg, and we feel very much sorrow for your loss.

Mamma always says, "No one is truly gone, as long as we carry them in our hearts."

With love,
