I used to call my mom every 2nd night or so just before going to bed-I miss those phone calls so much

I talked to my Dad a couple of times a week, and anytime I need parenting advice. Not being able to turn to him and get his opinion on how to handle things just kills me.

I am so glad I found this board, you ladies remind me what is most important in the next few months. And I am getting an idea of what emotions to expect in what order after dad is gone.

The hardest thing about losing my dad has been watching my mom live her life alone without her best friend. Luckily I'm only a few miles away from her, and I try to be there for her as much as possible, but it'll never be the same. Her life is flipped upside down. She is only 50, has so much of her life left to live, and she struggles every day with getting up and living her life alone. She is a very strong person and we definitely try to keep her busy. But I can see her hurting. That has easily been the hardest thing about losing my dad.

talking to her - i've still had those moments when i had a question where my first initial thought is oh i should call my mom. i miss hearing her voice. i miss talking to her and telling her i love her. i miss giving her updates. and i cried my way through the mothers day card section at the store today, i was picking up a card to send my sister. It sucks how hard this is and all the small things i miss. May will be hard with my birthday and mothers day
