I know this is not "fun" but I knew this is where my friends would see it. Sunday my dads wife called me to tell me that the neighbor found my dad floating face down in the pool, they were unable to revive him. I know something happened to him..heart attack etc, that caused him to go under. His wife was in the house making lunch at the time. We have been waiting for the coroners report. He was healthy, we just had lunch last friday. The next thing I know I am sitting next to his body next to the pool he loved so much. We were supposed to have lunch for my birthday on the 26th. I cannot get my heart and mind around the fact he is gone...just gone. Poof like that! I have never lost anyone so close to me before. How do I come to terms with this? How do I wrap my mind around something so horrible? His funeral is Friday...all I can do is wait, and cry.Answer Question

You will never get over this I lost my cousin suddenly 6 years ago and I still struggle everyday with the fact that he died so young he was only 23, and was suppose to walk me down the isle when I got married so instead of having a big wedding I opted to have the mayor do it. If you ever need anything feel free to pm me you are in my thoughts ans prayers

(((Hugs))) I'm so sorry for your loss.
My brother died unexpectedly nearly 10 yrs. ago. Time heals but there are days when I do cry because I miss him so much. He is in my thoughts every single day.
My dad's friend gave him this book but he decided to give it to me. It's a journal that you fill out about your loved one. I highly recommend it: http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Catcher-Journal-Loss-Remembrance/dp/0811817318
