- Well that's that then.
Yeah DD – been busy with hospital visits (mum and doctors) as well as trying to keep on top of work. If it wasn’t for my little girls running in (and falling over spectacularly) to see me tonight after not seeing them much all week I think I might have imploded.Posted 6 years agoBreganteSubscriber
Sorry to hear that. My wife lost her mum when she (my wife) was 15. Shit relationship with her Dad who told her he couldn’t cope with a kid and put her into fostering. Only 2 years ago she got back in touch with him but he passed away at the start of this year. Even though she had 20 odd years without a parent, the realisation that she was no longer a “daughter” hit her incredibly hard. No real point to this but you and your brothers have my deepest sympathies.Posted 6 years agoNZColSubscriber
Even at forty-whatever-it-is that I am, I feel like a kid who has no-one to tell him what to do next.
Same here, an odd feeling. Not much to say really other than don’t beat yourself up for feeling sad/angry/lost – it’s all part of it. Look at your kids and remember that they need you for all their learnings.Posted 6 years agoDracSubscriber
There’s that too. At times death can be a blessing. Your kids will have your parents love passed on through you. I never knew my Dad’s dad but my Dad taught me things her learnt from him. And talked about him all the time, still does. My love of photography was partly inspired by photos from him as he was a photographer on the side.
They will live on in your memories that you pass on.Posted 6 years agoracefaceec90Member

Just shed the tear for you, can’t imagine the real awfulness of your situation. I wish I could say something intelligent and sensible bit all that’s coming out of my head is sadness.Posted 6 years ago
Give your little ones a kiss, a hug, another kiss, talk to them, even when they sleep. You’re a great father, make sure of that.
I’ll lit up a candle for her.
