I can't believe it's been 14 years...  
...and still not a day goes by that I don't miss him. :(


Taken when I was four years old.

November 30, 1927 ~ August 19, 1991


So I guess what I really want to know is - when does all of this start getting easier? :(

I'm not sure that it does, but think of it this way. As long as you are still missing him, he is still alive in your heart.

That's beautiful, thanks so much for your comment, Daniel. :) I know that you understand how I feel. :(

Oh Sheri I'm so sorry. I wish I could say I know what you're going through but I don't really. Maybe it never gets easier... losing a parent is that hard. I guess the only advice I have is remember all the good times you had with your Dad and smile. =) He's lookin out for you, I promise!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on August 21st, 2005 08:37 am (UTC)
Meredyth, you're just the sweetest! Thank you so much for your comments - I appreciate it more than you know. :) Big *HUGS* to you!

That really is a beautiful picture. For some people whose relationship was so special - I'm not sure if it ever gets easier. Hugs.

*HUGS* I don't think it ever really does get easier. it's going on 8 years since my cousin Stefan was killed and I can still work myself into a huge crying jag when I let myself. :(
Sheri: Sydney - couchshutterbug93 on August 21st, 2005 08:39 am (UTC)
I'm so sorry about your cousin... Some people say it gets easier, but it hasn't - not for me at least. Thanks for your comments, Lauren. *HUGS* to you!

My grandfather died when I was 11.....I still miss him to this day. *hugs*
Sheri: Sydney - couchshutterbug93 on August 21st, 2005 08:40 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for your comment, Robert. I'm sorry about your grandfather - he's a very lucky man to be kept in your heart for so long. *HUGS* to you too!

What a beautiful and precious picture. I wish I would know an answer but I'm not sure if some things ever will get easier.

You are in my thoughts.

Big *hugs* and much *love* to you, Sheri

That is the most adorable picture. I am not sure it ever gets easier. While I have never lost a parent and don't really know what it's like to miss them, I just know that he's still alive in your heart. *HUGS*
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on August 21st, 2005 08:42 am (UTC)

I wish I knew exactly what the answer was to your question. I would like to say that it gets easier, but I'm not really sure that it does. That picture is adorable and shows a piece of the special bond you had with your father. He still lives on inside your heart. I'll be thinking about you today sending hugs and good thoughts your way as well. *BIGHUGS* and love.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on August 21st, 2005 08:44 am (UTC)

What an adorable picture. My prayers and thoughts are with you today, Sheri. I can't even pretend I know what you're going through because I don't, but please know that I am certainly thinking about you today.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on August 21st, 2005 08:45 am (UTC)
Ashley, you are so sweet! Thanks so much for your kind words and thoughts and prayers - I appreciate it more than you know! :) *HUGS*

*hugs sheri!* That is such a powerful picture. It shows the bond, love and closeness you had with him. As they said in the Lion King "He lives in You." *smiles and hugs again*

It never gets easier but as long as you miss him and care about him. he truely is alive in your heart just like everyone is saying. :) (sending good thoughts and loooooots of hugs your way.)

That is such a sweet picture.

I'm not really sure if it will ever get easier. I honestly though do not know how you are feeling. Thinking of you, and sending hugs your way. You are a great person Sheri, your dad knows that too.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on August 21st, 2005 08:48 am (UTC)

Oh, sweetie, I don't know when it does. I'm sorry about your dad's passing in '91, though. That sucks.
