Hi everyone. I'm very new to JM and today I came across your board. I was wondering if I could join as I lost my father on 4/8/08 unexpectedly in an accident while I was two months pregnant with what would have been his first grandson. I started to read some of your stories, and I'm so touched that this group even exists.

Welcome to the group. I am Stephanie, your host. I lost my father to cancer in January of 2007. I am glad that you found us here and I look forward to getting to know you. Make sure you share your birthday/anniversary info as well as the info for your father in the sticky at the top of the board. Whenever you are ready I hope you will also share his story with us.

Thank you all so much. Although I just hit the one year mark of his passing, I'm still extremely emotional at times and....well...basically in denial that he's "really not here anymore". I will share everything in the sticky and hopefully someday be able to write his story in as well. To be honest, I still can't wrap my head around that day. (As I'm sure you all know what I mean.) All I know is for some reason, something made me drive to my parents house on my lunch break. They were watching my daughter that day (who was 18 months old at the time). I sat at their kitchen table, my dad across from me, my mom, and daughter and we all ate lunch. Who would have known that that would be the last time I'd see my dad. Hear my dad. Talk to my dad. Later that night, he took his usual motorcycle ride and was in a fatal accident. We still know nothing. The toxicology and autopsy reports came back fine. We question every day what happened to him. Getting that phone call at 9:40pm from my mom and hearing those words, "Daddy's dead" just floored me. And I was 2 months pregnant at the time.

Sorry to ramble on...but I look forward to coming here and getting the lift I so greatly need on those days where I don't even want to face the world.
