Comment: I'm 46 and lost my dad not long ago.

(See in situ)

I'm 46 and lost my dad not long ago.

I've found it helps to write articles to my children. Not write letters, but write a page or two about something that interests me, every now and then. Articles about a book, a political topic, a philosophical subject, a hobby, a memory, whatever. Just write.

I haven't actually given any of these articles to my kids, but they will have access to them when they are adults, and when I am gone.

What I miss most about my father is being able to ask his opinion about things. I miss this about my grandfathers too.

By writing to my kids, I hope to narrow the gap for them.

As they say, I feel your pain. Good luck.
