I’m sorry everyone but I had to write this....

Daddy its been 10 years today since you were taken away from me. On the day we were supposed to meet for the first time in ages. You were so cruelly taken from me before I had the chance to say all the things I so desperately wanted to say. I hope you know that I did and still do love you very, very much. I think about you every day. About what could have been and how much I love and miss you. How you never got to see your grandchildren or give me away at my wedding and meet my husband. I will never get over losing you. Even though I hardly saw you, you were still my dad and nothing will ever change that. I miss you so, so desperately and would give anything just to have 5 minutes with you, just so that you knew how much I love you. I have nothing to remember you by except a few memories….very precious and few and a single photo. I remember sitting on your knee and never wanting to let you go. I felt so safe in your arms. And those milky bars you used to bring me every weekend...You were my were my daddy.....

I talk to my children about you. You are still their grandfather and always will be. Though really I know so little about you, what I do know I will always hold dear and tell my children about.

I will be lighting a candle for you later tonight daddy. I am not sure how I am going to get through still hurts now just as much as when you first went away. I will never ever forget you daddy. I miss you so much. All my love forever from your ever loving daughter who will always be your little princess and the family you never knew. x x x x x

That is lovely, I strongly believe that this life is not the end of everything. Your darling Dad can see you and your DH and your scrummy children and God are they gorgeous.

So rejoice today if you can in the fact that you love your Dad and he loves you.

With much love

hugs and lots of warm wishes of peace, Titania.
Find the light from within the darkness today of all days. Look for the positive from within the loneliness and try to remember the good, that you have come away as a better person for knowing him and give even more credibility and meaning to his life. Most importantly, look around you at your wonderful family and try to celebrate your family today as your dad wold have done if he were there to meet everyone in person. Lots of hugs and make today special in a wonderful way. See it as a day for remembering him by rather than an anniversairy of pain and loss. Today is a day for thinking about the good times in the past and tomorrow is going to be another wonderful day with you and your family around to fulfil all the hopes and dreams your dad would have wanted and been so proud to see.
Hope my mutterings and badly put words are of help, I do understand your pain as been through a similar time recently.

Titania - That's such a lovely message for your Daddy. It's straight from the heart and is just perfect. I agree with bathmummy - see it as a day to remember him if you can. It's hard to let go of grieving but it's important to grieve and then move on. He wouldn't want you to be sad would he? There are groups that can help you through the grieving process if you need help. Please take care of yourself today and I'll be thinking of you. <<hugs>>
