Help me find Quotes about father loss - wocado

Can you help me find some nice quotes about father loss?

Two days ago I received a very touching email from a wocado friend asking me to help her create the perfect gift for her children, by finding the right words and designing for her a set of beautiful posters speaking about father loss. She has lost her husband a few years ago when her 4 children were in their early teens and after finding wocado website she was inspired and motivated, so she decided to get in touch and ask for my help. Needless to say, I am very touched and honoured. I have lost my father too many years ago, after he fought a hard battle with aggressive cancer and I do not think I ever got really over it. So I can resonate.
I have already started doing my research to find the perfect set of quotes or phrases for her. The words I would like to have on my wall.

I promised her I will get back with a list of ideas (words, quotes, poems) she can choose from so I can move on designing the posters for her.

During this process I thought that it would be great idea to reach out for your help in this research. So, I am asking all wocado friends who would like to participate to share your thoughts. You can:

  • Share your ideas in the comments below this website post
  • Write your ideas on our facebook page on this post here
  • Send me a message via our contact page if you want to remain anonymous.

You can also share this with your own friends and ask for their help too if you want!

I am looking for something you would like say to a child or person who have lost their father not the grief of loss in general.

Can you help me find the perfect words for our friend?

I look forward to reading your ideas and I thank you in advance for your help….

  1. See the book “The Next Place I Go” by Warren Hanson. It’s a short story with amazing illustrations and was my eulogy at my sister’s recent funeral. It’s appropriate for men, women, and children. I left it with her family at their request. This is the first book or poem I have ever recommended and I will always have an extra copy available to comfort me or send to someone who sees their loss as unbearable.

  2. You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived.You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back,or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left.Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him,or you can be full of the love you shared.You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.You can remember him only that he is gone,or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back.Or you can do what he’d want:smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

  3. This is what I told my 16 month old daughter when she asked for her daddy after her father was killed in a car accident back in 1987. I would tell her that her daddy’s spirit and love for her is still here. It’s in her heart and in her mind and wrapped all around her every day and every night protecting her. It’s the sunshine every morning that shines down on her and the wind that gently blows across her face. It’s the stars twinkling in the sky at night and the blanket that wraps around her at night like he would if he was here with her. It’s the raindrop that only she can feel on her check. He is everywhere she goes or will ever go as long as she keeps his love in her heart.

    I hope this helps some.

    1. Oh Lisa… this is such a beautiful comment. I love the words SO MUCH…!! There is poetry, hope, love and comfort. THANK YOU!!!!

      1. Hi Maya. Your very welcome. I’m glad I’m able to share what I told my daughter with you and all your readers. I know what I told my daughter all those years ago comforted her a lot and I really hope they can comfort somebody else.

  4. My father crossed over two years ago. He was a old man by then. I miss him. His dying created a turmoil in the family. My mother and he had divorced in 1967 yet she was flipped out by his death.. sorry this isn’t very comforting.. just what happened when my dad passed on..
    I believe our energy continues on. We choose when to come back again, we see people we are soul mates with again. The father who crossed over will be there for us. He still loves us, perhaps even more unconditionally now that he is in spirit world. Life does go on yet father lives on, in us, with us, spirit surrounds us. Hoping I helped a bit for you with ideas if nothing else. Peace and love to you all, Joanne
