My father commited sucicide when I was ten. Life hasn't been the same for me since. Like most young girls my father was the light of my life. Since his death I can't even talk about getting married because the question always comes up about who will walk me down the isle. Now that I am having a child I am excited as ever, ( I wasn't at first) and the baby's middle name is after my dad. I know I have a long time before I'm faced with the question of where's grandpa or whatever other cute name he will become to my child but what am I suppose to say? How do you stay strong in a subject that you yourself can't handle. Im 19, it has been 9 years in November and I can't face the fact without crying. Much less explain that grandpa isn't here and never will be.
I know having a child is a joyous occasion but how can I avoid thinking about how I would love for my dad to be holding him first without being sad infront everyone?

My son's grandmother passed away when I was three months pregnant. I like to think that she WAS the first to hold him. My son knows who grandma is, we look at her pictures often. He knows she's in heaven, and that she loved him before he was even born, and that she watches over him, like a gaurdian angel. That's all he needs to know, and that's all your child needs to know. I'm more worried about you. Have you talked to anyone about your father?
