I lost my father Tuesday evening. He left this world at 5:15 p.m, surrounded by his loved ones.

I'm hoping to be back on plan as soon as possible. Thank you dear friends for all your support. Every comment, goodie, message, text and phone call has been appreciated.

My default is to withdraw. I really don't want to talk about how I feel about it all. At this point, I'm okay without delving into my inner thoughts about the situation.

The funeral is Monday, with visitation the evening before and morning of the funeral.

    Really sorry for your loss Tiffany. I hope that with some time that you will start to feel better and get back on track, but until then, grieve however you need to. You have a lot of support as you can see on this page.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The passing of a loved one is always too soon, and I hope you can find comfort in your family and friends. Focus on letting yourself grieve and just know that if and when you are ready to talk about it, we are all here for you.

    Thinking of you... The loss of a parent at any age is completely devastating!! I know from personal experience. However, yours was not planned. I just want you to know that you are in my thoughts. Please take care of yourself. It's very easy to slip into a complete depression. Do things that will help you relax and by all means, grieve the hell out of this!!!
Hoping that precious memories of your dad, bring you peace.

    Tiffany, I am so very sorry for your loss. I wish there were some wonderful words of comfort that I could give you but there aren't. Loss of a loved one is one of the hardest things to go through. Right now everyday will be a challenge. The best advice I can give you is to own your emotions, don't try to stuff them down. If you want to scream, scream....if you want to cry, cry. Don't try and be brave/strong for everyone. The walls will not come tumbling down if you let your self feel your emotions and no one will think less of you. True story, I promise. If you need anything at all, Please call me or text me.

    Tiffany, I am so sorry for your loss. As a former chaplain let me say that grief has its own season and rhythm. Each person navigates it differently. I encourage you to be gentle with yourself. Listen to your heart. I hope your Mom is improving. Know that we will continue to hold you and family in prayer. May your memories bring you comfort and healing. June emoticon

    I am so sorry to hear about losing your father. I can only begin to imagine what you must be going through. Take the time you need, and know that we will all be right here when you decide you're ready. I tend to withdraw as well so I understand your reflex to do so.

I will keep you and your family in my thoughts
