This second Christmas season without dad has been harder than the first.

I have some dear friends who have lost their dads this year. And other dear friends who have also lost loved ones.

This song is for you.
And for me.
And for anyone who is missing someone this Christmas.


Love you dad.
Merry Christmas.

It is hard missing those you love at Christmas.

Christmas makes loss so much harder. Thoughts are with you.

Times such as these remind those who are alone just how alone they really are. Those who have lost, reminds them of that loss. However, it should ultimately be a day of healing. We just might indeed grieve those we've loved, but as a friend of mine once said, "The grief is a reminder that someone was there."

This year, he's 'going home' for Christmas.

Hope the rest of your holidays are cheery and bright.

Beautiful song. It doesn't matter that it's been almost 19 years since my dad died, it still sucks. Especially during the world series, and christmas.

2nd year harder?
oh, dang....don't say that!

i know one thing it's hard to understand, until you've actually been through it.

i used to think,,"oh, well, they lived a good long life...we all move on" and though that is true and yes, we do move on....and we understand, it's still hard on the heart!

thanks for the song.

Merry Christmas!

I can't imagine losing a parent. I think that, and losing a child have to be the hardest. And yet we'll all go through it at one point. Hugs to you Shanna.

I'm so sorry Shanna. Know that I am thinking about you!

Love and hugs and prayers for you my sweet friend!

Shanna,
Somethings I have learned: I lost my mom very unexpectedly when I was 21. I was also expecting my first child. In the last six years, she hasn't physically been here for soooo much. But she has been there. I do have my days when I just break down for no reason just because I need her so much. Some things, events and days are easier and some are harder... no matter how long our loved one is gone.
We never get over it but we do get through it. It's gonna hurt like hell but when we hold onto the faith we have, we come out so much better. My thoughts and prayers are with you...
All my love, Honey

How sweet of you. I'm missing my dad too. I miss him more at Halloween, his birthday. And Father's Day. But Christmas is sad too, so thanks.
