My Dad passed away on October 14th, 2006 from Lung Cancer. How long does this grief go on?? I keep thinking I will get to a point where I will miss him terribly but I will be able to see things he likes and not break down in tears. For example, he loved Johnny Cash, loved Long John Silver's and he was an engineer at Burlington Northern before he caught an eye disease and became legally blind--after that my Mom went to work and my Dad was a Mr. Mom before it was cool for a man to stay home with the kids. Everytime I see a train loose it-he always had model railroading models set up in the basement, or I was taking him to the hobby shop to buy a new train to add to it!! I guess I am struggling with this so much still that is surprises me--I can hear my Dad in my head telling to chill out, Kid--It's not that bad!!! It's very hard.
