    Poor little thing, she's only 16 and has lived half her life without her dad. I want to tell her the sadness does go away but you'll never be the same person.

    My daughter was talking about this last night. August 5th will be 7 years since her father died and the pain still gets her at times. He has missed her graduation from high school, now graduation from college is coming. I am sure when she is ready to marry we will talk about it again. Sadly she has several friends who have also lost a parent and they are a great source of support for each other.

    Yes, I don't see how Bindi can speak for ALL kids who have lost a Dad. She can only speak for herself and her personal heartache and she did it well.

    I was a year older than Bindi was when I lost my dad and to this day I think of all the things he has missed, especially as my parents never met their grand kids. I'll always carry that feeling with me but what I meant was eventually the melancholy does lift (for me anyway) but it's a different kind of sadness I carry around, more like what might have been, and sadness for the little girl who missed her daddy.

    My father died nine days before my sixth birthday. She's right on this: you never forget this kind of sadness. I'm 54 years old and I will never forget the day he died and the feeling of loss, as I still feel it today. No, it doesn't "hurt" like it did; time does heal some of those wounds. But you don't forget the times missed, the years we never had, and the hole in your life fabric. Never.

    She is right that it is a lie when people say with time it gets better. In my case it didn't. I was 16 when my Dad died and I'm 43 now. Still fucked up by it. Hugs for you guys who have lost a parent too

    My father died twenty three years ago when I was twelve and there are still days where the pain feels fresh.

    My father died when I was young too. I was a Daddy's girl and you never get over it exactly.

    I'm so sorry you all lost your dads so young. I can't even begin to imagine what my life is going to be like when my dad passes away. The past 8 years has been all about him after his stroke and sacrifices and compromises have been made so he came first and everything in my life came second. I know he'll never see my kids and that's been really hard to come to terms with and just thinking about him not being here, I start hyperventilating.

    I feel for Bindi and hope she finds somewhat peace in her heart as of all of you.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure her father would be quite proud of his daughter. From your posts it is clear you are a great person and I'm sure she is as well. I hope she gets enjoys her graduation and has happy memories of her dad on that day. I'm glad she has a group of friends who can relate to her feelings.

    edit: I just read the whole thread and I'm so sorry for ALL of your losses. I can't imagine not having my dad and I can totally see how it's something you would never get over.

    As a dad, I really find this thread pretty touching to read.

    I wish I could have had the sort of father all of you are missing. Very sorry for your losses.

    fugmuppet irwin grew into her looks. i couldn't stand steve irwin but by all accounts he was a great dad, it sucks she had to grow up with out him.
    i was 25 when my dad died and it was too soon, so my heart goes out to all of you who lost yours even younger. it's very true that you never 'get over it', you just learn to live with the loss and you'll never be the same. at the same time, i know how lucky i am/was to have had an amazing father and how lucky i am to still have an amazing mom who is also my best friend and favourite person on earth.
