I lost my Rob on 1st September and I totally understand my daughter was very close to her dad they had the same sense of humour they think the same . I know she is devastated at the loss of her dad but to be fair she is doing really well. We have my husbands best friend visiting us and when my daughter is at my house at the same time she will say “ I have no one to turn to now if I want advice or need to sound off “ and I sit there and wonder will I ever be able to step upto the mark now. I know my Rob was very good at putting things into perspective and she would listen to him and she would leave the house feeling and looking much better . I know it’s not her intentions to make me feel this way but I don’t want her to think she’s got no one to talk to .
Hi perhaps suggest next time that you say i know i can never take the place of dad but i will always be here to listen and will do my best to help ease your worries. I know you and dad had a special bond and he always helped i would like to help so always remember i am here if you need me.
