Early this morning, my father passed away at home...

My father's health has declined considerably over the past 4 years and much of my time has been spent taking care of him and although I've been trying to mentally prepare myself for this inevitable conclusion, you can never really prepare to lose a loved one. He meant the world to me and he was there for me my entire life. I'm trying my best to hold it together and be strong for my family as they will need me to be but my heart is truly broken. I'm certain I've mentioned it here at some point but for those who don't know, it is because of my father that I love GI Joe. He was the one who first bought me GI Joe toys when I was a kid and I've loved them ever since and it was one of my many connections to him. I'm not a religious man or very spiritual but I welcome all prayers, well wishes, alpha waves, and positive thoughts. It's going to be a very difficult road ahead and I'm not sure what the future will hold but I hope to find and maintain the strength to move on with my life without my father in it, whom I will miss forever...

As someone who has also lost a Father, I understand and empathize what you are going through right now.

Baby steps. Every day is another baby step...

Lost both my folks. About 7 years ago. Positive thoughts might do you some good (I don't know), but I would definitely prefer prayer.

I'm truly sorry to hear this my friend. Just remember that those we love are never truly gone, for they are forever in our hearts.

Sorry for your loss. My dad passed 2 years ago, and like your father, he had been sick for some time (12 years with emphysema). He was not the man he was, and in his passing, I was able to begin remembering who he had been. That is what I needed to during our time of loss. I hope that you can cling to those memories and let go the pain and hurt that come during a time like this.

My sincerest condolences, LIVEVIL.
A very difficult time to go through. What helped me in the same situation a long time ago:
- finding a funny pic of my dad that always makes me smile/laugh and displaying it in my mancave, pleasant link to/between him and my collecting/customizing hobby.

Perhaps this could provide some support too:
- making a self custom of him.
- if you still have it: that one Joe/Cobra you got from him. Put it in on a special shelfs or next to his picture.
- doing some (hobby related) work using tools you got from him

Stay strong!
