Hi all,
I am brand new to this forum and this is my first post. My father passed away almost 17 years ago from throat cancer. At the time, I was 13 years old and was very sad at the time but my grief seems to get worse and not better. I think it's because now that I've finished high school and college, gotten married and have had two children (with one more on the way), I am thinking more and more about all the things that he is not here for, especially getting to know my son-his namesake. Has anyone else found that time has not healed but made the grief worse? Any advice?

Thank you very much!

Hello Kathy. Yes, I think that when we lose a parent the reality sinks in over time. My dad died in March of 1989. It was such a relief that he wasn't in pain anymore that I was sort of numb to the loss for years. Then it hit me and I cried for days. I had a daughter who looked like him and me about 15 months after he died and I wanted him to know. It hurt that he would never see her and that she would never know him. I share memories of him with her and that makes me feel closer to him. I have come to believe that he knows what is going on in our lives and watches over us. That helps, but I do miss him.
God bless.
