A very sad day

Postby AnnaB » Nov 7th, '14, 4:43 pm

I unexpectedly lost my father yesterday. The police came ringing our doorbell at 3 am this morning. It is such a shock and it's been a very strange day. It seems like he fell in the stairs in the building where he lived and hit his head. He was probably killed right away.

So many things that I should have done and said, and it's all too late.

My brother will be coming here tomorrow and I have lots of support from my family. Alva said she wanted to wake up and find out that it was only a bad dream and I guess that's how I feel too.

Hugs and love to all of you!

Oh Anna!! I am so very, very sorry for your loss! It is never easy dealing with a death of a loved one, but especially difficult when sudden and unexpected. It's all very surreal and the loss immeasurable and indescribable! I will pray for strength to help you and your family through the coming minutes, days, weeks, months, and years ahead and wisdom and guidance in the decisions that will need to be made in the immediate and long term future.

And please, sweet Anna, take your time with grieving. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, and others need to accept where you are, wherever you are, and vice versa. There is no timeline.

Some helpful words from a dear friend that lost her father last year to brain cancer-she was actually given the helpful advice herself from another person who had lost a love one---find one thing, one quality, you loved about your dad, and try to live that quality out every day, in his honor and in his memory.

Oh, dear Anna, my heart goes out to you and your whole family! What a terrible experience to be wokened with such heartbreaking, unexpected news. I am so sorry for the death of your dad. I am sorry that you are feeling the shock, ache and sorrow as the reality of it all settles in.
You will be in my ongoing thoughts and prayers. My heart hurts as I understand the pain of sudden loss and grief.
I hope that you can move through the coming days with a sense of peace and comfort by holding on to the good memories that you made over the years.
I agree so much with Susan, be gentle and kind to yourself and to others who might do or say the wrong thing, as they don't understand fully how you feel. You are loved- even from long distance. May that love wrap around you and help give you strength as you walk this hard path before you.
I am deeply sorry; my sympathies to you and all your dad's loved ones and friends. xo

Oh Anna, I'm so sorry! I can't imagine the shock you all had. But I guess it is like the nightmare Alva want to wake up from.
Take your time and take care of eachother.
