I lost my dad today.

He was a remarkably kind, funny, smart and talented man. He loved the Gospel and his family with his whole soul. My world will never be the same.

Eowyn, you Dad isn't lost. You know exactly where he is, now don't you. 

 

He has gone through the door from mortality to the next step in the plan of salvation. Keep the memory of him vibrant and alive by talking of him, sharing your memories with your family and writing them in your journal. All of the memories you have.

 

When my mother passed, my little brother and his wife took their four children to the temple, had a picnic on the grounds and explained to them that Grandma and gone through the door. Mom and left each of her grandchildren a tape recorded letter. My brother took one child into the atrium of the Portland Temple, let them listen to Grandma's letter and held them as they cried. The fourth child was only a baby so his turn in the atrium came many years later. 

 

Often I go to their FB pages and write a memory I have of my Dad, Mom and Grandma-  it is the easiest way to share their memories. I also post the same memories with all of the grandchildren AND great & ggreat grandchildren. 

 

I often think of putting together a book, printing it and sending everyone a copy - but I am not finished with the memories, will never be finished, and printing costs would break too many bank accounts. But FB and email are so handy. 

 

Our loved ones are never lost - unless they have apostatized - they have passed through the door from mortality to the next step towards eternal life. 

 

My love and prayers are with you, My Sister in Zion, and with your loved ones.

Lots of hugs to you.

Even though you know you will see him again one day, it still hurts to lose someone you love and has always been a part of your life.

May you feel surrounded by your Heavenly Father's love.

You have my sincere condolences, Eowyn. My father died in January 2011, and not a day passes that I don't think about him. A good father is one of God's greatest gifts.

I am sorry to hear about your loss.  My father passed away last year, and I think about him everyday.  A few days before he died, I found this article on lds.org: The Spirit World, Our Next Home.  I printed a copy for my mother, and it brought her much comfort.
