Lost my father ~three (3) years ago, my mother ~two (2).  Can't say whether what you feel is what I felt (I suspect it is), but time does dull the edges, although not the memories.  Save those, above all.  ('Tis said time heals all wounds, but that's a lie:  it just lets 'em scab over.)  Great sorrow for your pain and grieving.

I also lost my father back in 2008...Please don't be as stupid as I was and take to the Alcohol...Its a VERY bad idea and didn't help a single iota

Mine as well.

It's nice to see the regulars taking time out to wish you well too.  : )

Very sorry for your loss SJ: May he rest in peace and your and your family's grieving bring peace.

I hope your memories will glow in full colour.

I'm following in your footsteps with my father (although he's on the other side of the country).

Thank you all, and my condolences in return to those that are (or have) also shared in this experience.

On a side note: Drowning you sorrows is just fine as long as it's only a short term dunking (think Irish wake). The next day the living must go on with the process of living in a clear headed state ... Or as clear as my brother and I could fake after drinking until 4:00 am that is.
