I lost my daughter on Nov. 27. She was 39. I see that many women on this forum have lost their father. I don't know any of you, or your father, but I can tell you there is nothing like the relationship between a father and daughter. We want to protect our daughter's and give them the best life we can. We want them to be in relationships and friendships that enhance their lives. We want them to be strong and have high self-esteem. We want them to know they are loved. If I had passed on instead of my daughter, I would have wanted her to be strong and continue to reflect the values I passed on to her. Integrity, love, forgiveness, and strength. It is so difficult for me to lose my daughter, and I miss her so much! But, I know how much she loved me and appreciated me, and I try to focus on honoring her in every way I can. I try to focus on how much she taught me. She never complained about having cancer, and never expressed self pity. I doubt if I could have been as strong. She is her father's daughter.
