Many people know 9/11 to be the day our Nation was attacked.

I know and mourn this day for another reason, another loss. Sept 11, 2003, I said good-bye to my father. My brother and mother came to my school, there in the princpals office I was told his heart has stopped. It was time to say good-bye.

I miss him so much - everything about him. His voice, his smell...every single thing!

I wish he was here to see his granddaughter...

...I know he is in a better place, but call me selfish I want my daddy back.

My birthday is on the 12th, tomorrow. Ever since that day I haven't had a real celebration just never seemed right, ya know.

It just hurts, like it was yesterday...or today.

HUGS!!!!!! I'm so sorry for your loss. I know what you mean about wanting him back though - i want my mama back so badly too. Loosing a parent really is one of the hardest things in life. I know you'll always miss your dad and i'll always miss my mom. Again, HUGS to you - it must be a hard day!

I am so sorry for your loss. Its hard getting through milestones and anniversaries, I know. Your dad is with you when your little girl giggles, and when the wind brushes her hair; he's here. Happy Birthday

Lucky mother to five!

I'm so sorry for your loss and so sorry that it is still extremely difficult for you. Grieving is such a long process and different for everyone. Having a birthday around the same time doesn't make it much of a birthday but one thing you have to remember is that your daddy is there with you, he's just in a different form now. He will talk to you any time you want him to, he will comfort you anytime you want him to, he is there just not in the body. Does this make sense? I wish my dad was here in the flesh too and i will for the rest of my life but i have to always remind myself that he is always here with me, just in a different form now.

I'm sorry if this doesn't make you feel better, i really hope that it does though.

I lost my Dad 3 years ago to ALS. I feel your pain. I'm so sorry for your loss. I was only 32, but you sounded like you were much younger than that. Being young and loosing a parent is really rough. I lost my grandparents when I was around 12 on my Mom's side. I never really new my Gparents on my Dad's side. I have my Mom, my Aunt, my sister and my husband and daughter for my family. A very small family indeed. It sucks to not have had much time with my grandparents and then loosing my Dad so early too. My daughter was about 5 at the time when my Dad passed. It's awful to know she won't have that time with him.

I haven't really grieved for my Dad as I had to just move on and be strong. It just really sucks all the way around. So I feel your pain. I wish you all the best and hope for better years ahead for you.

Take care
