Happy birthday dad

My dear dad would have been Seventy-Seven today, really struggling at the moment


Hi Ginger81,

I’m sorry for your loss.

It is a surreal and heartbreaking experience to not have our dad’s here on their birthdays. I found my dad’s birthday quite upsetting.

I hope you can take some time for yourself on your dad’s special day.



I’m having my first quite good day today 3 months on from losing my husband. That’s not to say I haven’t also cried with painful grief today, but I’ve been out to the supermarket and on my way round I noticed the greeting cards. I bought him a birthday card for next month. I shall put it on the mantelpiece with the photo of him I got done for the memory table at the funeral. This small thing has given me a good feeling!
