Who Have Lost a Parent

jmel: Those of you who have lost a parent: please tell me when does it stop feeling as if your heart has been ripped out and you finally stop crying every single day?

Dad died, suddenly, close to fifty years ago now. There have been some days I didn't even think about him. Then there are days I walk down to his grave and complain about him and his father dying so young.

May the joy of good memories assuage the pain of loss.
