I know how you feel and it might not seem like you can cope right now, but it will get better, my dad died two years ago and i think about him every day. I can't say the funeral will be easy for you, but he would be so proud of you. Try not to worry too much.

i'm not sure if you will read this before the funeral or not, but i just want to tell you that its gonna be hard but you will get through it. think how proud ur dad would be of you to go today. my dad died in his forties aswell. i know how you feel - you just want to say their too young to die. you don't expect your dad to die before you.
at my dads funeral it was so strange to see so many people there - i knew my dad had lots of friends but there were people i'd never met. its comforting to see that its not just you who misses your dad.
it was four and a bit years ago since my dad died and i went to the funeral. to be honest it's all quite a blur. i just remember being overwhelmed with it all because i was only 11. i don't know how old you are but i'm 16 now so it was a while ago.
just think today and always how proud your dad is of you and today you will do him proud.
good luck.

i hope u got thru the funeral ok, your dad would be proud of you for just getting thru it howeveru did. and u did do it. good luck, hun, you ll be ok, just take things very slowly and let yourself mum doed four months ago and im just starting to cry properly now, it ok to let your feelings out. your dad is ok now and he isnt sick anymore. take that as a comfort and know that he is with the angels now and looking out for you as much as he can, its hard to feel him there with you, i know, but he is. lwith love, frances.
