wow. i recently lost my dad (early december). He was my gps, literally. I would have to go somewhere and he would talk me through it. tell me how and how long etc. after he passed, suddenly, two days after i had seen him, i really got lost on the road driving. it was a devastating feeling to be lost. like really lost, inside and out. I kinda numbed out for several months as other shitty personal things were happening. just this past week, i went with my bf to a funeral for the father of his friend. the man giving the last word before we passed the casket and left our flowers spoke about the departed being in another om, waiting for us. this was part of the message the priest gave at my dad's funeral. alot of what i had heard before returned to me. I was reminded that essentially, whomever has left, is in the next stage of his life, a new place; kind of like a baby coming into the world where we are now. there is so much to learn about and do. Even though he was scared to leave here, now he is in the new place, a paradise. He is learning all the things about it so he can greet me when it is my turn to get there. its the only way to deal with it - believing he is the one who will, once again, teach me all the good things about where i hope to go. Then it will be my turn. hope this helps your heart.
