I lost my Mom the day after Easter after a long illlness of several years (COPD/Emphysema) and I'm battling the depression monster largely because of her loss.

Spend all the time you can with him and leave nothing unsaid. I'd give anything just to have Mom back for about 30 minutes just to tell her how much I love her and thank her for all she did to me. She knew it but I never took the time to sit down and really just directly tell her all these things. Now I'd give my bank account to have that time.

Tell him everything you feel about him now and love him all that you can.

I agree with Onclou9. I lost both my parents, one is '99 and the other in '08 and I would give everything to tell them how much I appreciate them. I wish for a full recovery for your father, but it definitely wouldn't hurt for you to spend time with him. Let it all out while you can; it'll make for a happy memory and a satisfied soul :)

I agree. My mom has dementia, and IT IS KILLING see a beautiful person.........slowly, well it hurts.........I went through a faze where I could not be around her allot, she would say some hurtful things to me, and know one day she will not be here...........and I MAKE myself go..........even if it is killing me, the anxiety and depression are allot to do with this..........

Just hole his hand and talk........tell him you love him so............and I will prey your daddy make a great recovery. I lost my father whom was my best friend and have yearned to just give him a hugs.........I would give anything.......I miss him so, but he knows I LOVE HIM................
