a good friend of mine has just lost his dad and i saw him in the pub last night its so so hard to get over it but you will and lost loved one's will eventually make you smile as much as the memory makes you cry......i'm learning day by day,the hardest thing i have found is trying to remember that there are people around you that are here and NOW,grief is all encompassing at times,i remind myself to tell my children and my wife that they know that i love them and not to let the hurt exclude them and friends too,not easy at times,all kindness to your family,not much use over the bloody internet but all the same i mean it.

I lost my mam when I was 22 and my dad at 23 - it was very, very hard to bear, and I don't suppose it's any easier when you lose folk when you're a bit older.

I feel very sad for those who've lost, I hope you can take some comfort from your loved ones and those of us in cyberspace who are giving you a little room in our thoughtsxxx

lost my own dear dad on valentines day, so many of richards songs bring memories flooding back. i had introduced dad to his divine-ships beautiful music on his birthday when we went horse- racing, and he was a fan. ladys bridge makes me weep , and "tonight the streets are ours" has poignancy, cos dad was a good old liberal/socialist type. yes , richards music is deeply comforting, as well as heart breakingly beautiful. dad also insisted on keeping a photo of r.h. with his twins in london at the hosp[ital gig. so definitely a fan.
the forum members also seem to be a great bunch, who are genuine, and dont just deal in the usual platitudes.
as richard says,"keep me in your heart"

Really sorry to hear of your loss Walter; your post struck a chord with me because I'm the same age as your mum. I lost my own dad last summer, but he was 79 and had had a long and fulfilled life. The lovely people on the forum were a huge source of comfort and sound advice and helped me through a very difficult year. As Richard said, the grief doesn't go away, but you do learn to deal with it and with time, you somehow learn to cope with it. I find that just listening to a piece of music or remembering a happy family occasion makes me both smile and cry. At times now I can just laugh and smile at fond memories without the tears; it does take time though. Your mum would have loved your choice of 'Last Orders' for her funeral. God Bless your mum and take care of yourself x
