    Condolences. I have lost many close relatives over the years. You never fully get over the hurt but when you get a chance to spend time with them and able to say goodbyes it means the world. Having said that, it being a parent is devastating at first but the best advice I like to share, if I may, is moving forward in life as they would want you to. I'm a granddad's brat, raised by my grandparents and when he passed on about 4 years ago I thought my world ended. But like you, my children and I were able to say goodbyes and he passed when I called him and said we made it home. He told me to call him once I got home, I did and he never spoke again afterwards....... OK, I have to stop cause I'm about to have a meltdown myself.

    Sorry for your loss, keep your mom close and speak to her as much as possible, and keep your dad's memory alive by telling your children all the funny memories, and pass on all the great life lessons you learned from him.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I am glad you and your children got all of those special moments before he went into that deep sleep. That is something they will be able to cherish forever.

    I know nothing any of us can say can help with the pain that probably comes in waves, but know that you are cared for and supported.

    Praying for you and your loved ones.

    I'm so sorry for your loss ((hugs)). It will hit you at the weirdest times (at least it does for me). I lost my dad very suddenly in 8/16. My mom went out for lunch with her friends and came home and he was on the floor. My kids were 10 and they remember Grandpa's sense of humor and support in so many ways. The worst for me is when I see/hear something and I think "oh I have to text him this" and I know I can't. A year plus later its gotten easier, but you have wonderful memories to help bring peace and comfort. I don't think you ever really get "over" it, you just keep moving forward. Much love.
