Apr 6, 2009, 4:09 PM - My Jango is gone.... :(
2009 is starting to really suck.
My Dad passed away Sat. around 5 am Hawaiian time.
What sucks is that I was going to visit him this year, I visit him every 2nd year... and it was going to be during the Xmas/New Years.
He had a stroke 3 yrs ago and has been recovering since, My step mom said he was fine when she left the night before.
This isn't a pity thread but more for me to have an outlet... my Wife, family, friends and been great... and I consider this forum family as well.
But the reality that I'll never see him, hear him and touch him is what really hurts... I want to say I love you one more time...
thx to all for helping me heal...

I am very sorry to read this. I´ll keep you and your dad in my prayers! I hope you will go through this hard time with no harm and reach the sunlight very soon.
Remember: No one can take your memories from you.
All the best bro!

I am also very sorry to hear this news. You and your family have my deepest condolences. Losing a loved one is always a very difficult thing to deal with. Naturally, we will always tend to question ourselves about numerous things. Maybe we should've spent more time; maybe we should've called more often, or said I love you more...etc. At least that's how I felt when my mom passed. Like these guys already said: celebrate the time that you had together, and cherish the memories. Think of how your father would want you to feel at this time. I know that it's a hard time for you, but thanks for sharing. We are here for eachother, and talking about this will help. Take care.

You and your family are in our thoughts mate. My wife has been through this 3 weeks ago. Best of wishes from OZ.

I am also sorry to hear this.
and I wish you all the best.
There is not much that can be said at this time. Be strong. The "missing him" never goes away, but the pain gets a little better as time goes on. It does take a long time to heal. It will come and go. You will think it is getting better, then it will hit you again. Just let yourself feel it and work through it. And you will come out on the other side stronger for it.
You will learn much more about life and be able to help others.
We will keep you in our prayers!

i am sorry for your loss.
i can't even begin to understand what you are going through. me and my father are very close. i hate to even think of the day when he will not be here.
cherish and honor the moments you had with him.

I have to agree with everything LadySewforus said. And I'll send my prayers, too.

I'm very sorry about your Dad. Even though I try to tell my parents that I love them as much as I can, I know that it is never enough.
If you want to tell your Dad that you love him one more time, do it. Tell him whenever you need to. He will hear you and he will always be with you.

my thoughts and prayers go out to ya bro. Take heart that he is not truely gone. You are the extension of him. You are his hopes and dreams and the best of him that is left here. I can only say that because my son is my hopes and dreams.
If I were to pass I know the struggle of life was not in vain because there is my son and I am proud of him. I can only imagine every good father feels the same way as they smile down upon us.

Oh no. I'm so sorry man. Of course my condolences go to you and your family brother And I now this may not sound appropriate right now, and no matter how cliche it sounds ... in time it will get easier for you. You won't EVER forget, but it will get easier.
For the hear and now, don't deny yourself grieving for him like I did for my Dad. Let it happen, let it out. Whenever and wherever it wants to. People will understand. You don't need that regret later.
My prayers go to you ...

I'm not even sure what to say... When I read the title, I thought you were selling your Jango armor... and then I read it and my heart crashed through the floor... I always scare myself with that thought... my deepest prayers will go out to you and your father tonight. Stay strong brother! He's still and always will be watching over you!

THANK YOU!! everyone...
I cannot express how ALL your posts have helped me cope
I leave next week to Hawaii to bury him and celebrate his life as my father, teacher, hero... and to help my step mom who has NEVER given up on him during his time after the stroke.
