I can't believe it's been 10 years since my dad passed from a sudden heart attack. I can't remember his voice and can barely remember what he looked like without a picture.



And I wonder EVERY day what my life would be like if he was still here.

In less that a month it will be 7 years since my dad passed. I'm starting to forget the little things about him.

It sucks :( How old were you? I was 10, I guess that's why I don't remember much.

wow...I dont really know what to say. This makes me want to call my dad and record his voice heh.



I know its no where near comparable, but my rabbit died last year. i wonder sometimes if i will ever be able to forget him, the way he felt, the way he smelled. I can imagine it so vividly but know i will never get that back.




as for a parent, i have not seen my mom since i was six.. i remember doing an assignment where i drew her and described her in third grade. i could then, but i cant remember anymore. i think i remember her voice but most of it has been washed out by my own heads voice. i remember though that she was beautiful, wonderful blonde/brown hair, tan skin, pretty eyes, etc.
I did visit her a couple years ago, and whatever i remembered her as, or invented memories...she was not the same. she had a smokers voice, her skin was abused through tanning too long, her hair was damaged and bleached. very dissapointing.




i hope you are left with good memories that cant be disturbed like this...

Blah my dad's 17 year mark was the 15th.....I was barely 4 years old.
I can't remember like anything besides him always picking me up & doing the airplane or tickling my feet..And him always being in the garage working on the Harleys.
I don't remember his voice, smell nothing:( I sometimes resent the fact my brother & two half sisters got WAY more time with him and remember way more..



But I'm still so proud to call him my daddy.<3 I won't even let go of my maiden name for my husbands so I hyphenated..My name is ridiculous now.



I have such an empty feeling:(

Yeah, I find myself resenting my brothers for the same reason. They were 20 and 24 when he passed.



I mainly remember how fun he was and how much he loved me.

Yeah they were juniors in high school..



I remember he adored me but I hate that my memories get less and less vivid over the years.

No videos. :( And barely any pictures of him or us together. He was always the one taking pictures.



I actually realized I was doing that too, and stopped. Now I take tons of pictures of DD and I together.
