Father’s Day 2015

“My father and best friend passed away when I was 17. Every time I go to a wedding or baby shower, every time I think about milestones in my life I realize over and over that my best friend won’t be here for any of them.”

That memory was shared by Laurin on the Hello Grief Facebook page this week — a thought that many people will encounter through Father’s Day weekend this year. Similar to Mother’s Day a few week’s ago, we collected some articles for you to check out for what will be a difficult day for many.

    I wish I had more pictures of my dad, it recently occurred to me that I could barely remember what he looked like and he’s only been gone for a few years now. All I have is a black and white photo of him sitting at our kitchen table. I wish I could have one more day with him, his life ended as mine was starting, barely 18 years old when he died.
