I understand this experience. I recently had the same experience regarding my mother, who transitioned more than seven years ago. By writing about it, as you have here, I discovered an antidote. All those beautiful memories, everything you shared with your father, all that love is still with you. Remembering that is a healing poultice that can and will provide solace to your heart.
